WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #313 is Eugene Cho. Eugene is the President and CEO of Bread for the World, a Christian advocacy organization urging our nation’s decision-makers to end hunger at home and abroad. He is also the founder/visionary of One Day’s Wages, as well as the founder and former Senior Pastor of Quest Church. Eugene lives in Seattle with his wife of 24 years and three children. He released a book earlier this year called Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian’s Guide to Engaging Politics. 

Friends, I am beyond excited to share this episode with you. It’s thought-provoking, encouraging, and challenging which is the perfect blend for a great conversation. Eugene talks about fighting against the stereotypes surrounding poverty in the U.S., starting a new job and leaving his home of Seattle behind, and engaging in civic duty beyond voting. He also gets into the effects of political tension in our nation and how we can often place our allegiance to political parties above the kingdom of God. Division is never easy or light, but I love it when Eugene says, “To be a Christ-follower is to be faithful amid tension.” Wow. I know the world sometimes feels like it’s crumbling, but I’m so thankful for Eugene’s reminder that we are called to love God and love people through the tension. I hope you walk away from this conversation feeling as encouraged as I did.
