Ep. 148: St. Jude Hospital, WORLD Magazine, Sean Feucht, and More

We’d like to welcome you to the MinistryWatch podcast.

Each week, MinistryWatch brings you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective.  Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

On today’s program, we look at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  It’s not a Christian ministry, but a lot of evangelicals donate to the organization, and the money is not always going to help children.  We also look at a shake-up at WORLD Magazine.  Finally, I offer a few thoughts about the podcast “The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill.”  We begin today with news from San Antonio, Texas, where a rally at a church has drawn criticism for its use of the controversial “Let’s Go Brandon” chant, and for other reasons.

We’ll be taking next week off from the podcast so we can enjoy Thanksgiving with our families.  And, at the risk of shameless self-promotion, I’d like to mention that we are rapidly coming up on the year-end.  Just six weeks to 2022.  And, without belaboring the point too much, we need your financial support before year-end.

MinistryWatch is different from many other news sites in that we take no money from the organizations we cover, we have no advertising on our site, and no paywall.  All of our content is completely free.  But we do depend on the generosity of people who believe in what we do.

And, I’ve got to say, that if you’re listening to this podcast, you’re either a glutton for punishment, or you’re a hard-core MinistryWatch fan.  If the latter, I hope you’ll consider a year-end gift so we can keep doing what we do.  Just go to MinistryWatch.com and it the donate button at the top of the page.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy. We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, and Casey Sudduth.  Writers who contributed to today’s program include Nidhi Upadhyaya (?), Kim Roberts, Anne Stych, David Armstrong, Ryan Gabrielson, Mark Tooley, Bob Smietana, and Steve Rabey.

Until next time, may God bless you.
