Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on June 4, 2019
4:00 – Kresta Comments
4:20 – How the Ascension and Pentecost are Part of Christ’s Mission
Over the span of a few days we celebrate two titanic events in Church history – Christ’s Resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. We continue our discussion with Fr Thomas Weinandy, looking at how these two great feasts are part of Christ’s mission.
5:00 – The Faith of Eisenhower
June 6 is the anniversary of the Normandy Invasions, one of the most important battles of the century. The invasion was led by Supreme Allied Commander Eisenhower, who would later go on to the White House. While there have been many biographies of Eisenhower’s military and political career, none have looked deeply at the role his faith played in both his personal and public life – despite the fact that he was the only US president to be baptized while in office. We take a look with Alan Sears.
5:20 – Reclaiming America’s Conservative Soul
Conservatism is an inheritance, not an ideology. American conservatism emerged out of our experiences as a self-governing people who love their inherited liberties rather than abstract rights; whose laws have historically emerged out of our norms rather than a specious theory of justice; whose gift for creating and protecting political freedom has served as the primary obstacle to the relentless drive toward an egalitarian administrative state. Ted McAllister joins us.
