15: One Year Later: Reflections on Charlottesville

It’s been one year since violent protests rocked the city of Charlottesville. Matt and Jake sit down in an impromptu session to reflect back on what happened when the Alt-Right came to Charlottesville. They talk through whether the racial reconciliation conversation has gotten better or worse and how Christians should respond to tragedies like Charlottesville. 
 
Passage of the day:
“We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds. At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars. ” (Psalm 75:1-3, ESV).
