Ken Kemp

After comparing notes on Mother’s Day, Ken and Betsey dive into Ken’s most recent Substack. Bart Ehrman, a fellow graduate of Ken’s Bible School, gave up his Christian faith over the problem of evil. He’s not alone. Theologian Thomas Oord has written a book that addresses the problem. He proposes that we focus not on an Omnipotent (all-powerful) God but on a God of Love. Betsey shares her personal crisis of faith as she watched the Twin Towers fall on 9/11. Then they turn to the headlines: the scheduled Biden/Trump debates and the criminal trial in Manhattan. When Trump’s Vice Presidential hopefuls showed up en masse for a press conference in which they parroted the former President’s grievances word for word, the nation got a preview of things to come. Ken calls out Senator John Thune for his support of Kari Lake. Finally, Betsey shares her Sunday morning experience in a Progressive Episcopalian Church on the north shore of Chicago. SHOW NOTES
