Carmen’s opening commentary centers on the content of a Tweet – and an article – and a recommendation by the American Cancer Society – and just how far we’ll go to not call a woman a woman:
Individuals with a cervix are now recommended to start cervical cancers screening at 25 and continue through age 65, with HPV testing every five years as the preferred method of testing, according to a new guideline released by the American Cancer Society https://t.co/gUhYdIIx69

Then Carmen talks with Paul Asay from Focus on the Family’s Plugged In. They review a few movies, chat about the upcoming Emmy’s and Chosen – a show that’s getting a second season because of the support of people of faith.
In the second half, Carmen has a conversation that we’ll describe as “meaty.” Words you might have to look up: insalubrious, ontological, and missio dei. And…words we thought we knew but which must be redefined in the conversations of the day: identity, image, discipleship. Carmen’s conversation partner is Josh Laxton and the article they discuss is The Convergence of the Missio Dei and the Imago Dei: A Way to Understand Discipleship.
