Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on July 27, 2017
4:00 – Evangelizing like Jesus
It seems like every week someone comes out with a new trick for bringing people into the faith. These ideas mix psychology with spiritual fads and marketing jargon and rarely seem to be effective. Eric Sammons joins us with a different strategy – the Old Evangelization.
5:00 – My Work with the Forgotten Slaves in a Caribbean Paradise
With its beautiful beaches and golf courses, the island of the Dominican Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean. Yet when missionary priest Fr. Christopher Hartley arrived in the country in 1997, he discovered another side to this paradise: the deplorable living and working conditions of the people who harvest the country’s sugarcane, and the illegal human trafficking that brings them to the plantations as slaves. He joins us with the story of how he brought the Good News of Christ to the workers whose unjust treatment was ignored at every level of society.
