Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 15, 2018
4:00 – Violence against Christians Continues in Nigeria
Two recent massacres of Christians by the Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria left a total of nearly 80 dead, bringing the total death toll to the year into the hundreds. It is believed that Christian deaths at the hands of the Fulani now outnumber Boko Haram, one of the world’s most infamous terrorist groups. When Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari visited the White House last month, President Trump urged him to do more to curb the violence. We’ll get more from Fr Bob Dowd.
4:20 – “These Bombs led me to Christ”
The Napalm Girl is one of the most iconic and chilling photographs ever taken. It shows a young girl shrieking in fear and pain, arms outstretched, a dark cloud of napalm billowing in the background. That girl, Kim Phuc, survived the blast and all these years later can say that the bombs led her to Christ. She joins us.
5:00 – How are Jerusalem’s Christians Reacting to the Embassy Move?
The United States officially moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem yesterday. The decision has been highly divisive, and protests yesterday in Gaza exploded into violence that left dozens dead. What does the local Christian population think? We’ll get a live look-in from Steve Ray, who is on the scene.
5:20 – Healing Family Breakdown

The culture that promotes divorce, hook-ups, cohabitation, abortion and pornography has left countless broken families in its wake. We’ll talk with Jennifer Roback Morse about healing family breakdown and an upcoming workshop in Ann Arbor that addresses this issue.
