Kresta in the Afternoon – July 19, 2021 – Hour 1

Steve Karlen of 40 Days for Life previews Tuesday’s Jericho March and Fr. Dave Pivonka discusses living Metanoia in our daily lives.

40 Days for Life Expands its Mission

Steve Karlen never expected to find himself debating the most contentious moral issue of our age – especially when there was a ball game on. But when a friend found herself facing a crisis pregnancy, he was launched into the center of a statewide firestorm. Since then, he’s joined forces with 40 Days for Life and will be in Ann Arbor this week. He shares his story with us.

Metanoia – True Fulfillment in Christ

Early in Mark’s Gospel Jesus calls us to repent – or, in the Greek, Metanoia. But the word “repent” doesn’t capture the full meaning of Metanoia – because it isn’t a one-time event. It’s an ongoing process that takes our entire lives to complete. We’ll talk about living Metanoia in our daily lives with Fr. Dave Pivonka.
