Join us for a fascinating hour of radio. We start with some of the stories making headlines and then turn to recent actions on The Equal Right Amendment. Is it finally dead? Hasn’t that been the case for years? Why was it resurrected? Then we will visit with a renowned civil rights leader who wants to weigh in on the conversation about reparations. What is justice and do reparations bring justice? This hour we will look at all of these questions through the lens of Scripture.
This hour we take your questions on the issue of human sexuality and biblical Truth. How does the Church minister to someone with same-sex attraction? How do you handle the issue of transgenderism when your child tells you they were born in the wrong body? Do you go to a family member’s same-sex wedding? This powerful challenge against God’s word requires deep, sensitive thinking and much discernment. Our conversation is designed to provide you with both.

Robert L. Woodson, Sr. founded the Woodson Center in 1981 to help residents of low-income neighborhoods address the problems of their communities. A former civil rights activist, he has headed the National Urban League Department of Criminal Justice, and has been a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Foundation for Public Policy Research. Referred to by many as “godfather” of the neighborhood empowerment movement, for more than four decades, Woodson has had a special concern for the problems of youth. In response to an epidemic of youth violence that has afflicted urban, rural and suburban neighborhoods alike, Woodson has focused much of the Woodson Center’s activities on an initiative to establish Violence-Free Zones in troubled schools and neighborhoods throughout the nation. He is an early MacArthur “genius” awardee and the recipient of the 2008 Bradley Prize, the Presidential Citizens Award, and a 2008 Social Entrepreneurship Award from the Manhattan Institute.
