Ep. 24: Former Wheaton Chaplain Answers Charges And Silicon Valley Is Not All Greed

On today’s program, the Paycheck Protection Protection Program was designed to save jobs at organizations that didn’t have the money to pay its staff.  But some churches and Christian ministries that are flush with cash took the money.  We’ll take a closer look.  Also on today’s program, the Wheaton College chaplain that was fired last week is this week answering the charges against him.  And today’s Generous Living story is about a Silicon Valley couple that is giving away one of that world’s most coveted prizes:  equity in the companies they are helping to build.
