34: The Obscenity of Forgiveness

EPISODE: 34

The Obscenity of Forgiveness

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

Forgiveness is one of the most ‘obscene’ things offered by the Christian faith from the perspective of the modern world. As we approach Easter, Michael and Megan challenge us to consider how modelling the mercy of Christ impacts on those around us.

In this Easter episode…

With the deaths of the Abdullah children, Hannah Clarke and her kids still fresh in the minds of Australians, hosts Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen ask, ‘Just how comfortable are we with the idea of forgiveness?’

Michael and Megan then talk to Esther Scott, whose missionary father Graham Staines and brothers were murdered in India.

And we discuss the obscenity of forgiveness as we contemplate the enduring popularity of the song Amazing Grace.

WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?

Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
