Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on August 21, 2018
4:00 – Co-Workers of the Kingdom: The Lay Response to the Church Crisis
What does it mean for the laity to have co-responsibility for the Church, and how does it apply to the current crisis? Teresa Tomeo will host a webinar this Wednesday to discuss this critical time in Salvation history. She joins us with a preview.
4:20 – Building the Benedict Option
When Christian author Rod Dreher published The Benedict Option last year, it generated a flurry of debate and comments throughout the Catholic and Christian blogosphere on theories of what authentic Christian community is, and what it is not. Leah Libresco joins us to cut through the debate and provide tips for Christians who want to build communities of prayer and evangelization at home and on the go.
5:00 – Baker Jack Phillips Returns to Court
You remember Jack Phillips as the man who won a Supreme Court case a few months ago that declared he could not be forced to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. If you thought that was the end of the story, you’ve got another think coming. The Colorado Civil Rights Commission has filed a new complaint after Phillips declined to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition. Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a lawsuit on his behalf, and Jim Campbell gives us the latest.
5:20 – Why Convert to a Scandalized Church?
As evangelists and unleashers of the Gospel, how do we adequately address the scandal in the Church? How do we explain to non-Catholics why they should still consider coming home to the Church, and why current Catholics should remain? We talk with Marcus Grodi.
