Connecting Faith 5-1-18 | The Case of Pastor Andrew Brunson with Aykan Erdemir | How to Bring God into the Headline News of Each Day
Dr. Aykan Erdemir, former member of the Turkish Parliament and senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, spoke with us about the deterioration of democracy and the status of American Pastor Andrew Brunson whose trial resumes in the coming days. With Turkey under a state of emergency in which there is currently no rule of law under a leader that has no exit strategy, it is not a good time to be a Christian there. Pastor Brunson’s imprisonment is a result of hostage diplomacy, the framing of an innocent man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

How do we bring God into conversations on the headlines of the day? As we scan the headlines, we look for what people are going to be talking about. It is our job to bring eternity to bear on the realities of the day and be ambassadors of His Kingdom. Carmen walks us through today’s headlines and demonstrates how to get God back into the conversation.
