J. Mark Fox teams up with Shawn Curtis (the officer) and Micah Fox (the president) to talk about the use of satire in Christianity, especially the Babylon Bee, which refers to itself as “your trusted source for Christian news satire.”

Does satire change anyone’s mind? Is satire helpful for the church? Is that even the purpose of The Babylon Bee?

At the end, Shawn explains why his family motto was “no fun!” and the Foxes talk about how they try to create a family culture that includes humor.

J. Mark Fox teams up with Shawn Curtis and Micah Fox to talk about two issues: Colin Kaepernick and his sitting during the national anthem, and what people look for in a church.

In the beginning, we discuss Kaepernick, freedom of speech, as well as general racial tension in the United States. We talk about how the Gospel compels us to seek reconciliation because of what Christ has done, and how leaders can help to encourage right thinking on this issue.

In the second half of this episode, we discuss what people look for in a church. Are people looking for entertainment over a church that preaches the gospel? Should we be looking for a church with a strong children’s program or one where families worship together?
