Featured musical artist: Liz Vice
Roundtable: Care, But Don’t Cave
Your friend doesn’t share the same values as you. You want to be nice, but when he or she does something you don’t agree with, how should you respond? Should you tell them exactly what you think of their bad behavior? Brush it off? Wait and see? Our guests discuss what it looks like to be respectful toward people we disagree with, and how to love others without stonewalling, enabling, or compromising your faith.
Guests: Sara Bess Kemeny, Austin Johnson, Glenn Stanton
