Stand Up and Be Counted
The ads will soon be over, praise the Lord. But the best part is just around the corner: getting to cast your vote (if you haven't already) in a national election and be part of a process that makes this nation great. We've assembled a panel of patriots this week to talk about why voting matters and why HOW you vote matters. If you're an American but aren't planning to vote, I will get up in your grill. You've been warned.
Love One Another
A lot of Christians are good at speaking the truth, but have a hard time doing it in love. Focus president Jim Daly addresses this in his new book ReFocus, and challenges us to reflect Jesus' heart in all our conversations, even in those with whom we disagree.
I know guys are supposed to pursue, but does that mean I can't even say hello? Good question, and one that gets an answer from Candice in this week's inbox. She helps our listener take a moderate approach to getting the dating ball rolling in a culture where it's often either all, nothing or something irritatingly nondescript in-between.
