CRUX Episode 61 - Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was canonized by Pope Francis on Sunday, September 4, 2016. So there's a lot of talk in the media about saints. For Lutherans, this is a mixed conversation. We cling to and hold on to the saints, but we neither worship no pray to them. So what are we to do with a woman like Mother Teresa? John us for Episode 61 of The Crux of the Matter, hosted by Todd Peperkorn and Scott Stiegemeyer.

WHAT ARE WE TEACHING

  • Judah and Tamar (Todd)
  • CS Lewis (Scott)

CRUX Episode 59 - Church Politics

Church politics. Even the phrase leaves a bad taste in your mouth. But what is it, and is it all bad? Whether you are talking about what color the carpet should be, all the way up to how we should deploy missionaries, politics are involved if humans are involved. Todd and Scott go back and forth on the subject today. Learn more in Episode 59 of The Crux of the Matter.
