Ep. 144: Liberty U., Baseball and Jesus, and Re-Thinking Missions
On today’s program, a lawsuit brought by indigenous people against New Tribes Mission could force many missionary organizations to re-think the way they do their work. And a new study highlights the vital role churches play in helping those with food insecurities. We begin today with more news from Liberty University. The way Liberty University has handled sexual assault incidents has come under scrutiny in recent months. This week, a new report by the investigative journalism organization Pro Publica alleges that Liberty has discouraged women from coming forward with their stories because to do so could get them expelled.
