In the Christ and Culture podcast with Ken Keathley and Benjamin Quinn, we explore how the Christian faith intersects all avenues of today’s culture through conversations with leading thinkers.
Why does every human being have dignity and worth, and why is this so important to emphasize in this moment? Matthew Soerens of World Relief joins us to discuss the many humanitarian crises in the world right now — from Israel, to Ukraine, to other places few are talking about. Right now, 35 million people are refugees, and Matthew shares how people can pray and serve. Through it all, he explores the importance of emphasizing human dignity. (The conversation begins at 8:25.)
PLUS, in “Headlines” (1:25) Dr. Keathley and Dr. Quinn discuss actor Matthew Perry’s recent passing, specifically a pastoral response to addiction. And in “On My Bookshelf” (34:00) author Jennifer Bleakley tells us about her new book Finding Grace: The Inspiring True Story of Therapy Dogs Bringing Comfort, Hope and Love to a Hurting World.
