Season 1, Episode 6 – “Why Our Responses Matter: A Conversation on the Conflict in the Middle East”
Welcome back to You Matter! This week, Shane is taking a look at a
different way we matter in this world: the way we respond to world-shifting events as Believers. Shane breaks down the current situation in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas, giving historical context and walking through why it is essential for us to understand it both as Americans and as Christians. He discusses the dangers of extremist ideologies in all religious and political organizations, drawing from the words of Jesus and His assessment of extremism during the time of His ministry. What we say and how we respond matters, and Shane reminds us that a relationship with Jesus can ground us in our faith and bring comfort during tumultuous times.
