In this week's podcast Karl and Laurie talk about George Saunders's commencement speech, delivered at Syracuse, in which he says: "What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering, and I responded...sensibly. Reservedly. Mildly." How well can Saunders's simple and kind spirituality speak to a secular world? And why is it that many church-goers fail in kindness so routinely? Is there a way to reclaim a spirituality of kindness within the church? Join us as we discuss these weighty matters, and Hebrews 11:29-12:2.
