    2023: Here Comes the Sun?

    2023: Here Comes the Sun?

    In this week’s news roundup, host Mike Cosper and editor in chief Russell Moore look back at 2022 and cast a hopeful eye toward the coming year. Dubbing 2022 “The Year of Exhaustion and Anger,” Cosper and Moore discuss the role of anger in American society, its fearful manifestations and protective instincts. The divisions in denominations, the rise of Christian nationalism, and the end of Roe might leave you with questions about what lies ahead; but hope springs eternal. Listen for why Dr. Moore believes “democracy is not dead,” and how healthy institution building can offer a path forward out of the darkness of the last few years. News editor Daniel Silliman returns with the latest installment of “Hey, Daniel, what’s weird?” to share a sci-fi story about Puritanism’s golden boy, Cotton Mather.

Great podcast

I really appreciate the perspective of this, and many CT podcasts.

Strong start, slipping away

I came to this podcast by way of The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. The first few episodes, I was pleasantly surprised by their balanced and thoughtful treatment of current events while also relating it to Christian perspectives and experiences. However, recently I think the hosts have started slip into the temptation of talking more as if they were two friends behind closed doors than if they are hosting a podcast. For instance, when discussing abortion, I was troubled that they flippantly addressed concerns about affording another child as “it just all works out.” That may have been their personal experience, but I thought it showed a lack of compassion and understanding for others in difficult circumstances. And last week, they laughed about an example of one person attributing a friend’s generosity to manifesting, but as I listened to their story, I was struck by how quick a Christian would be to attribute the same generosity to an answer to prayer. The hosts did not make this connection and in my view, once again showed a lack of compassion and self-awareness. (To be clear, I share their beliefs both about abortion and about manifesting, but objected to their attitude towards both.) If I knew either of the hosts personally, I could share these observations with them, because as I shared previously, the first few episodes were excellent and I hope that can get back on track to a balanced, compassionate, and self-aware discussion of current events.

Loving the discussion that is willing to examine different points of view against Scripture and from men and women who view current events not as right or left, but as lovers of Jesus.
