Word and Table is a Christian podcast that is dedicated to dialog with the secular world. We believe that the Gospel is preached best by Christians who are engaged in the communities that surround them, who suffer when their neighbors suffer and rejoice when their neighbors rejoice, no matter who those neighbors may be. We’re interested in science, art, pop culture, politics – all of those things that remain in our minds when we go to church on Sunday morning.
In this week’s show we join with Ross Douhat of the New York Times in wondering if American parents are engaged in a colossal pity party. Is parenting really that hard? Or is it the last bulwark of the obligation society? Karl, Laurie, and Jared want to know, and they also want to talk about Matthew 5:38-48.
