Morning Roundup 10/2/13
Terry Mattingly rightfully observes that journalists often avoid identifying Islam in stories where it is necessary.
Last night, Beth Moore and I talked about child sexual abuse for a bit on Trinity Broadcasting Network. As I mentioned there (the show airs Friday night), it is more common than most people believe. My friend Boz Tchividjian has been speaking up on the issue, most recently at the Religion Newswriters Association (RNA). I'll also be interviewing him in a few weeks, but for now here is Sarah Pulliam Bailey's story from that presentation at RNA.
Rich Stearns speaks up for the role of the church in defeating extreme poverty.
When I was in Dallas recently, I was privileged to host on The Exchange a well-known author and founder of Gospel for Asia ministry, Dr. KP Yohannan, for a discussion on the western perspective of world missions and leadership. Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
