50: Thoughts And Prayers

EPISODE: 50

Thoughts And Prayers

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

“I’ll pray for you” – so often a throw-away line in the Christian community, now under examination With All Due Respect.

Secular and religious societies are fond of using prayer as an easy means of addressing a crisis – so much so that hosts Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit discuss how ‘thoughts and prayers’ has become a phrase that has gained much antipathy in the public sphere.

Examining this language of the inner life, Megan and Michael talk about what sort of prayers they use when addressing God, and in what contexts.

Then to finish the show, a special edition of ‘Marg and Dave’ as the WADR team review their favourite prayers on offer.

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.
