With All Due Respect

Lent - a quaint, catholic tradition that had more relevance for bygone centuries? Or an opportunity to exercise a vibrant faith? The WADR team explore the options.

Show Notes

For the return of season 6, Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen plunge listeners into the heart of a two-thousand-year-old tradition in their efforts to understand what it might have to contribute to spiritual growth today.

Lent is a period of prayer and fasting in preparation for Easter that has been practiced since apostolic times.

Until recently it wasn't that popular among Evangelicals, but more believers are beginning to observe this 40 days of reflection - including guest Dr. Ros Clarke who has just released a devotional for Lent.

Forty Women : Unseen women of the Bible from Eden to Easter considers the historical truth that the first witnesses to the resurrection were not men, but women - and without women, the Easter story would not have happened at all.

The WADR duo then discusses whether Bible-believing Christians should be doing something that doesn’t appear in The Bible, and finish with a five-star film often watched at this time.

What is With All Due Respect?

Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
