#ec1dot52 - A Conversation Between Church and State: The Candidates
The 2016 US presidential election is just three weeks away.
We’ve talked about many of the issues surrounding the election, but this week we talk about the candidates.
Sean, Sarah, and I discuss the pros and cons of each candidate and I find myself in a position I never thought possible: defending Donald Trump.
But does that mean he is getting our vote?
Find out on this episode of Another Empty Conversation
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
Welcome to Empty Conversation episode 1dot52 and the concluding episode of our series on a Conversation between Church and State. Over the past 6 weeks, we have talked about the US presidential election and some of the issues that surround politics and the church.
We have had many tense moments and heated arguments…some on the record and some off. We have confirmed that nothing divides people like politics. But we have also affirmed that nothing draws people together like the love of Christ. Sure it sounds hokey, but we can confirm that often times it was only our mutual salvation that kept us together.
As we close this series we also are closing another chapter in the story of Empty Church. We are fast approaching our 1 year anniversary. We launched our website and podcast on October 31, 2015, and we are so thankful for every article that was read and podcast that was listened to.
Next week we will have a special episode where we reflect on the past year - the first year - of Empty Church and the Another Empty Conversation Podcast. You will not want to miss this special episode.
Until then, we have a very special treat for you today. A lively discussion about the presidential candidates. We force ourselves to find the good and the bad in all of them - which was harder than you know.
Our hopes are not to influence your vote, but to think hard about why you are choosing to vote for a certain candidate. So let’s hear what the EC crew has to say...
Thanks for listening everyone. Remember to get and Vote on November 8
Coming up next week is a special episode looking back on the first year of Empty Church - be sure to tune in and turn it up
