How do we move beyond racial division? What is short-sighted about colorblindness and antiracism? In this conversation, Professor George Yancy shares what's missing in these approaches and puts forth a new way that calls for mutual accountability. This model is based on listening to those in other racial groups and crafting solutions that account for their interests. Join this fascinating conversation on how to truly listen and consider others above yourself and your group for the flourishing of our society.
The word "evangelical" is no longer a positive label in our culture today and many are seeking to avoid it in their church and their church's communication. Author and Professor Matthew Bennett says that what is needed is not a name change but a reclamation of the missionary roots of the American evangelical church. Matthew talks about some of the contributions of the evangelical church and why we don't want to leave these behind on Monday's show.
