Slow Kingdom Coming: How Justice Brings Hope to the World

Episode 163 - Kent Annan

In the midst of chaos and suffering, we as believers can cling to the hope that God is with us through it all. Our guest, Kent Annan, joins us to talk about this hope as well as how Christians should seek justice. This type of justice is not focused on retribution or punishment, but on bringing life and redemption to a community.

Kent shares from his book, Slow Kingdom Coming, which presents ways in which followers of Christ can live justly, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. His discussion on suffering, justice, and God’s presence is thought-provoking and beautifully illustrated in an understandable way. This episode awakens us to God’s call for justice, truth, and love in our everyday lives.
