Responding to President’s Trump statements about law and order, his walk across Lafayette Square to stand in front of the boarded up St. John’s church holding a Bible in a picture, Carmen asks, “How do you see what’s going on in your city and in our nation right now?” Perspective matters and even when we watch the same events, we don’t all see the same thing.
The President suggested he may federalize the National Guard and employ the 1807 Insurrection Act to restore order. Mark Caleb Smith explains that that means and gives historical context. He and Carmen also discuss how they are talking with their kids about the headlines of the day.
In the second half, Carmen talks with Minneapolis pastor Jason Meyer about what he said to his congregation on Sunday.
In sum, life matters.
