The Reconnect 11-17-16 | What are Americans thankful for? | Churches fight back against predatory loans

What are Americans thankful for? Thankfully, LifeWay Research did the survey to ask, and director Scott McConnell provides insight into what is on Americans’ hearts and minds this Thanksgiving season. We also analyze the data on evangelicals and voting in 2016.

Then, Marlena Graves has been working to fight “payday” loans, or predatory lending. Oftentimes, it is the only option for low-income individuals to get the emergency cash to fix the car, pay the rent or put food on the table. Marlena educates us on what are payday loans, why they hurt and how we might be able to offer an alternative.
