Roundtable: Asking Good Questions
One of Lisa Anderson’s favorite ways to get to know people is to play question games — the more meaningful or intriguing the question, the better.

Culture: The Men We Need (Part 2)
Brant Hansen is on a mission to remind men of the vital role they play in making a society healthy. An “avid indoorsman” who plays the accordion, Brant assures us that being a man isn’t about beards or blowing things up, but about taking responsibility and doing good in the world. In his book “The Men We Need,” he offers six principles around what it means to be a godly man. This week we’ll discuss the final three: 1) Make women and children feel safe, not threatened, 2) choose today who you will become tomorrow and 3) take responsibility for your own spiritual life.
