Saudi Arabia Golf, LIZZO & Knowledge v. Belief? w/ Ray Jones
Jun 23, 2022 Season 1 Episode 76
Simon Doong and Lee Catoe

This week we talk about A LOT! First, we send our deepest prayers to the people of Afghanistan who have experienced a terrible earthquake. We also talk about some of the things happening at General Assembly while also talking about a new golf league funded by Saudi Arabia. All that and more on A Matter of Faith! 

Question of the Week:
Recently hit star Lizzo made headlines for changing an offensive lyric in her new single “Grrls” after backlash and criticism. I don’t know how many examples I’ve seen of artists listening to feedback in this way. How could we learn from this in churches and in the wider world, especially those of us who care about social justice?

Special Guest:
Ray Jones, Director of Theology, Formation & Evangelism, PCUSA

Guest Question:
What is the difference between knowledge and belief? Where is faith in this conversation?

Resource Roundup:
The LIV Golf Invitational Series and what you need to know
Lizzo’s Lyric Offended Fans. She Changed It, and They Forgave.

Think Again
by Adam Grant
Innovating for Love: Joining God's Expedition Through Christian Social Innovation by Kenda Creasy Dean
