Episode 44 Mike Murphy
It’s always a fun time to have my husband, Mike Murphy, on the podcast. He is a good thinker and has helped me learn how to think deeper and broader about a variety of issues.
He is a pastor, and so Christian faith colors everything he says and does. I’ve received emails from many of you asking if I would have Mike back on the podcast to talk about the current political climate and possibly help with a grid for voting. While we won’t tell you how to vote, I think Mike says some insightful things and there is a really good exchange about this difficult election season during our conversation.
What does it mean for Christian people—people who value issues of faith—to vote their conscience? And how do we talk about it when a good friend or neighbor holds an opposing view? Just a couple of the important questions we tackle.
The book we have posted this week is The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything—a worthy read by James Martin that we find ourselves recommending to many these days.
I hope our conversation is helpful!
