Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 29, 2018
4:00 – North Korea talks break down – what happens next?
Last week President Trump announced that he has canceled plans for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Why did he make this move, and what happens next? We’ll talk with Suzanne Scholte who also looks at how Christians are sharing the Gospel with North Koreans.
4:20 – Family of Journalist Kidnapped in Syria says he’s alive
It’s been 5 years and 9 months since Marc and Debra Tice heard from their son, Austin. Austin is an Eagle Scout and former Marine who attended Georgetown, but decided to travel to Syria in May 2012 to give a much-needed firsthand account of the war there. He has not been heard from since August of that year, except for a short video showing him blindfolded. His parents join us with his story.
5:00 – The Snakes have returned to Ireland
More than 66% of Irish voters voted yes on Friday to repeal the country’s constitutional amendment banning abortion. The government has promised to have a new abortion law in place by the end of the year. This is the second time in three years that a popular vote in the historically Catholic country has overwhelmingly rejected a major Catholic moral position. We’ll talk once again with Kevin Turley.
5:20 – From Darkness to Light in Jesus
Sr Miriam James entered college on a volleyball scholarship with the dream of one day working for ESPN. She had been raised Catholic, but never truly understood Christ’s love and pursued love in other places. Feeling empty and broken, she eventually rediscovered her faith and found her vocation. She joins us with her story.
