As Christians, what did we learn from the US election – and what will American evangelicals be doing differently next time?
The US election, a showdown between the Republican President Donald Trump and the Democrat candidate Joe Biden, has captivated Australian audiences.
This episode Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen consider the take-home points from the close association between American evangelicals and the trounced Donald Trump.
To help them, they interview American author and Christian commentator Karen Swallow Prior. They then follow this up with a discussion on life in a partisan environment. And for dessert, it’s time to dig back into the vaults of Hollywood’s greats and consider lessons to be learned from Mr Smith Goes To Washington.
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.
