Episode 534: Does Ministry Matter More than the Marketplace? with Joe Leininger



With the midterm elections happening in the U.S., we’ve seen a rise in both hyperbolic political rhetoric and political violence. There’s evidence that fewer Christians are willing to denounce the use of armed conflict to achieve political goals, with some even arguing America was founded on it. Are they right? Is there a Christian case for political violence? Then, Skye interviews Joe Leininger, a Christian business leader about his journey from believing God only cared about ministry to a much wider vision of his work in the world. Leininger’s new book, “Dirt Clods and Donkeys: An experiment in mentoring that changed lives,” explores how he has helped other Christians in the marketplace develop a more integrated faith. Also this week—Indiana police pursue Pikachu, don’t kiss camels in Qatar, and Kaitlyn explains why she’s a nerd but not a geek.

Phil, Thank you so much for the recommendation of THE STRAIGHT STORY. I'm so glad I was able to stream it. Not something I would have expected from David Lynch. But, I'm now curious about the metastory of his directing it.

War is political violence. Is it logical to be in favor of political violence between people of different nations, but against political violence within a nation? Shouldn't we be against both kinds of political violence?

It confused me for a while because I was a good computer programmer, but would have been a really lousy pastor. In every church I've been, missionaries are at the top of the list, pastors second, people who work for parachurh organizations third and the rest of us are just there. There are a lot of p…
