Ep. 197: Seattle Pacific, Food Ministries Stressed, and Pro-Life Ministry in the Post-Roe Era

On today’s program, students at Seattle Pacific University end their sit-in for LGBTQ rights, but the controversy at this Christian school is not likely to go away.  And we check in with some prominent pro-life ministries to see how the Dobbs decision, the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, will impact their work.  We begin today with a report that rapidly rising prices are having a significant impact on ministries that provide food and housing for the poor.

A few housekeeping items before we go.

First, a big thank you to those who gave us a fiscal year end gift last month.  We had nearly 200 donors during the month of June who gave us about $20,000, which barely got us to our goal.  But it was an ambitious goal, and I am grateful for the support.

I also wanted to mention that I was in Southern California last week and had the pleasure of hosting a luncheon of MinistryWatch supporters in Newport Beach.  A hearty thank-you to those who came out for that event.  And I wanted to mention that I’ll be doing a similar lunch in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 19.  That’s a Tuesday.  If you live within driving distance of Des Moines and you’d like to attend, shoot me an email and we’ll make sure you get an invitation.  My email is [email protected]
