Today is an exciting day: Carmen’s first book, Speak the Truth is released today. Find information and order here.
The largest number yet of NFL players protested during games across America, following a Friday speech by President Trump criticizing such behavior. The conversation has now devolved in a political fight. Christians are just as divided as the country, and that’s not how it should be. Both Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow are both Christians. Both have used kneeling on the field as an act of faith and an act of expression. Why do we feel differently about them?
Our guest today, Pastor Carl Day joins us to discuss the protests over the weekend and encourage Christians in how we engage on the topic. He is Pastor of Culture Changing Christians Worship Center and as an avid sports fan, hosts the Troll Free Sports podcast. Carl calls on Christian players to invest their time and money and get involved with community development and social justice. Will this be just a one-day PR stunt or will this provoke actual action?
The call to all Christians is similar. Step up and do more than react to what is in our social media feeds. Have the uncomfortable conversations, and show the world how to have them with grace, genuine care and concern.
