Best of Context: A season in review
We take a look at 2020 through this BEST OF video reel highlighting God among us in some of the biggest issues facing all of us – stories about justice, ethics, culture, and society.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the world as we once knew it.
From lockdowns to ground-breaking vaccines.
The world also changed on May 25, 2020 when Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds as Floyd cried out “I can’t breathe,” before taking his last breath.
A global racial reckoning ensued, or as distinguished author Drew Hart says “For some it’s been a racial hardening, but it’s kind of undetermined yet, where it’s going to go.”
Protests on police violence and racism in the Black, Asian, and Indigenous communities across Canada and the U.S. were broken wide open.
Plus: brokenness in the world through mental health, pornography addiction, sexual abuse, and the opioid crisis show the need for Jesus, and never losing hope – even in the darkness.
Inspiring leaders in climate, media, business, and diverse Christian voices in our culture reveal the hope and impact of Christians have in our world today.
Musicians like LeCrae speak to the church hurt he suffered as he shared humbly and vulnerably with Maggie John.
And Juno award winning artist Laila Biali spoke with me about her “calling” into music. This season, Context leaned into the tough conversations in the headlines, reporting on relevant, reliable Christian analysis on the news.
