Ep. 106: WORLD’s Michael Reneau on George Floyd, “Tolerant” Portland, and Transborder Education

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.

Regular listeners to the program know that last week we began these “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes.  We will continue our regular Friday weekly roundup episodes.  Those are episodes I co-host with Natasha Smith.  But these MinistryWatch Extra episodes are a chance for us to “go deep,” you might say, with one of our editorial partners.

Today, I’m pleased to have back on the program Michael Reneau.  Michael is the Editor of WORLD Magazine.  He came to WORLD after a successful tenure as an award-winning editor at The Greeneville Sun, a daily newspaper serving East Tennessee.

We begin with Sophia Lee’s WORLD cover story on evangelicals.

I’d like to mention that both WORLD and MinistryWatch are coming up at the end of our fiscal years on June 30.  We here at MinistryWatch depend on your financial support to do what we do.  We don’t take money from the ministries we cover, and we do not accept advertising or sponsorship dollars.  We are 100 percent donor-supported.  If you’d like to help us out financially, just go to the MinistryWatch.com website and hit the DONATE button at the top of the page.  Your contribution before June 30 will help us finish this fiscal year strong.

Also, I want to let you know that even if you don’t want to or can’t make a donation, there’s still something easy and FREE you can do to help.  Just rate us on your podcast app.  The more ratings we get, the better the program performs with search engines.  A rating doesn’t cost you a dime, and it really is a big help.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.   We get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.  Thanks to Sophia Lee, Sharon Dierberger, and Angela Lu Fulton of WORLD for providing material for our conversation today.

Until next time, may God bless you.
