The Reconnect 4-10-17 | Coptic Christian churches attacked in Egypt

ISIS bombed two Coptic Christian churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday, killing dozens. Father Theodore Ghaly is a Coptic priest here in the US at St. Verena Orthodox Church, but he serves a congregation with many family and friends still in Egypt. We ask him about his experience as a Coptic Christian in the US, what we need to understand about being a Christian in Egypt and how we can do to tangibly support Christians in places like Egypt. Our view as Western Christians is really different from those Christians living as a religious minority in other places around the world.

We also run down some of the interesting worldview stories of the last week. Sweeden blacklists an anti-abortion midwife. Twenty-five percent of “Christians” in the UK don’t believe in the resurrection. Some school districts shame students for a debt they cannot pay.
