Segment #1: Dad Helps Daughter Spin Hula Hoop


Father of the Year material right here. Way to go, dad!


Krista mentioned a 2013 study during the segment by the CDC about the involvement of black fathers in their kids' lives. You can check out that data for yourself here.

Segment #2: Promise Sawyer and Her Brave Afro


The real is, Krista loves a good afro. This middle school girl is wearing her natural hair loud and proud. Just the way God made it to come out of her head! Go ahead, Promise! We support you.

Segment #3: Teacher Greeting her School Kids


Jesus honored children and treated them with dignity. We loved this teacher's idea to allow her students to choose their own greeting.

Segment #4: How Can Jesus be Both God and Human?


Our Muslim friend, Juad, asked a great question about the incarnation of Jesus. Krista attempted to explain one of the great mysteries of our faith.

Segment #5: Sidewalk Pro-Life Apologist


Very few youth pastors understand the power that it can have to teach their students apologetics. Here is a great example of the impact a peer-to-peer conversation can have. More of this, please!

Segment #6: Big sister sings to Down syndrome brother


Dealing with a family member who has a disability can be challenging. We know. We've had our fair share of those. So, naturally, this video caught our attention. All humans matter.

#compassion #family #disability #dignity

Segment #7: Stranger Buys Clothes for Family


We are living in a cultural moment where people are so busy screaming at each other on social media that you'd think there is no humankindness left in the world. Thankfully, there are still decent people in the world. More of this, please.

Segment #8: Seminary Students Confessed Their Sins to Plants


This week, students at Union Seminary confessed their sins to plants in chapel. It was a liturgy to confess the harm they've done to plants, speaking directly in repentance.


We've heard of confessing our sins to God and to others. But to plants?!

Tweet of the Week: Liberating Evangelicalism conference


The Liberating Evangelicalism conference convened last weekend in Chicago. It was quite an eye-opening experience. Check out the twitter feed here. It offered a glimpse into where Critical Race Theory is heading in the church.


Which is why it's very important for Christians to be informed about Critical Race Theory. Be sure to catch our latest video.
