Advent | Discussion Guide for Mr. Rogers’ Beautiful Day movie | Federal Judge reminds us all ‘Presidents are not kings’
During Advent we will be reading a chapter of the gospel of Luke on the corresponding day. So, on the first day of Advent, December 1, we read Luke 1. Today we read Luke 2, tomorrow we’ll read Luke 3 and so on.
Luke 2 includes the story of the birth of Jesus, the heralding of the angelic host and the experience of the shepherds, the presentation of Jesus in the temple and the testimonies of Simeon and Anna. Then we fast forward through the next twelve years of Jesus’ life in a matter of a few verses before arriving at the story of Jesus’ remaining behind in Jerusalem when his family travels back to Nazareth after Passover. Spend some time today in Luke 2 as we unwrap Jesus this Advent season.
Carmen’s conversation partners today are Brandon Showalter from The Christian Post and Adam Carrington from Hillsdale College.
Carmen and Brandon discuss the good news story of Landen Hoffman, the concerns over Chick Fila ending its corporate giving to the Salvation Army and FCA, and a faith-based discussion companion for the movie ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.'”
Then, Carmen and Adam discuss the ruling by a federal judge that former White House counsel Don McGahn must testify before House impeachment investigators and the specific statements of the judge that “Presidents are not kings,” adding that “they do not have subjects, bound by loyalty or blood, whose destiny they are entitled to control.” The opinion of the court is being appealed.
Dr. Carrington also explains several issues related to the U.S. Supreme Court.
