Ep. 104: Talking Harold Camping, Anti-Vaxxers, with Religion Unplugged’s Paul Glader

Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, all designed to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

On today’s MinistryWatch EXTRA episode I’m pleased to welcome back to the program Paul Glader.Paul is the editor-in-chief at Religion Unplugged and the director of the journalism program at The King’s College in New York City.  His journalism experience includes a long tenure with the Wall Street Journal.

To find out more about Religion Unplugged and the stories we discussed today, go to Religion Unplugged.com.  If you’d like to give to its International Reporting Fund, there’s a link at the top of the page.

To find out more about MinistryWatch, go to MinistryWatch.com.  And I’d like to share with you a couple of quick notes before we go.

First, I want to let you know that the classic book “Mission Drift” is our book of the month.  Mission Drift sprang out of research done by the co-author Peter Greer and his colleagues into the reasons some ministries strayed away from their founding missions, and how others stayed “mission true.”  This is an important book, and for a gift of any size, we’ll send you that book as our thank you for your support of MinistryWatch.  We think every Christian donor and ministry leader should have this book in his or her library.  But you do need to act fast.  This offer expires on May 31.

Secondly, if you’re in a spot where you can’t contribute – hey, I get it.  Been there a time or two myself.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t help.  First of all, we covet your prayers.  We write a lot here at MinistryWatch about people who started out strong, but finished poorly.  Pray for us that what God has begun here will continue faithfully.  And, secondly, if you’re listening to this podcast on a podcast app, give us a rating.  The more ratings we get, the better the program performs with search engines.  It’s an important way you can help us, and it doesn’t cost you a dime.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.   Here at MinistryWatch we get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.  Thanks to Bobby Ross, Julia Duin, Christopher Hutton, and entire Religion Unplugged team for providing content for our conversation today.

And, of course, I’d like to thank my guest-host and Religion Unplugged’s leader, Paul Glader, for joining me on the program today.

I’m Warren Smith, and you’ve been listening to the MinistryWatch podcast.  Until next time, may God bless you.
