Is it possible to work for the common good with people for whom we have little in common? Wednesday morning we will be having a conversation with John Inazu who along with Tim Keller has spoken to various Christian leaders and artisans to discover how we remain faithful to the gospel and respect those whose beliefs are radically different from ours. Be listening for this encouragement to breakthrough the barriers to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this hurting world.
Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs will be along Wednesday with his update on the persecuted church. Our brothers and sisters around the world are not only dealing with being persecuted for their faith, but they are also dealing with COVID-19. Be listening for stories of courageous faith and ways to pray and provide for brothers and sisters who are suffering because of their faith in Christ.
John Inazu is the Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law and Religion at Washington University in St. Louis and the author of Confident Pluralism and Liberty's Refuge.
