What are the essential marks of a friend? What separates Christian friendships from secular mates? Do Christians do old-young, male-female friendships better?
This episode the With All Due Respect team tackle the issue at the very heart of their podcast: friendship.
Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit start the ball rolling by asking whether the COVID crisis has led us to neglect our friends? Then it’s on to a revealing segment in which Michael and Megan discuss how they became friends, and what it is they’ve taken from each other.
Then author and social commentator Aimee Byrd returns to talk about her book on distinctly Christian friendship, and the WADR duo wrap up the show with a consideration of the book Dorothy and Jack, which chronicles the extraordinary comradeship between Dorothy Sayers and C.S. Lewis.
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.
