Do These Pants Make Me Look Christian?

23:34 – 

Fashion is mostly subjective. Every generation has its own trends, including its hits and misses. Mom jeans, anyone? Or what about the ever-controversial shoulder cutouts, skinny jeans, yoga pants or (shiver) romphim? Some style choices are personal preference, but some can trend toward offensive or inappropriate, especially when professionalism, good taste, and even your Christian witness are on the line. So where is the line? What’s OK anywhere? What should stay out of the office? And what should just be burned at the stake? This week’s panel has strong opinions on current clothing trends, and draws some lines on what looks good and what doesn’t, and what honors God and what doesn’t. See if you agree.

When Those We Love Hurt Us

Guests: Jason Romano,

25:06 – 

As a little boy, Jason Romano loved watching and playing sports with his dad. But Jason’s dad was an alcoholic. His behavior embarrassed Jason during Little League games and while attending sporting events with the family. He even drove drunk, endangering his family on more than one occasion. The behavior continued into Jason’s adulthood and career as a producer for ESPN. His dad would often call and berate him at work. Eventually Jason had to make a decision: walk away from his father forever or choose to forgive him. Jason shares his story of showing grace and setting boundaries with the man he loved the most — a man who had hurt him repeatedly.
