The Forum: Do We Really Have To Tithe 10% + Is My Husband Cheating?

This week the Reverend Frank Ritchie was in to talk about if we really have to tithe 10% of what we earn. We were also joined by Harvard Business graduate Amalya Campbell to talk about her book Love Let Go and how to move the dial on our giving, especially when cash appears scarce. 

Also this week we heard from a woman who is concerned her husband is cheating on her, and our resident counselor Aaron Ironside shared some advice. 

In the story of the Good Samaritan, we are reminded that loving our neighbour means paying attention to the vulnerable and crossing the street to welcome others despite existing racial, cultural or religious differences. On Sunday night we also talked with author Sarah Quezada about how the Church must stand up for immigrants and refugees.

The Forum: The Real Effect of Porn on Women + Lies Christian Parents Believe

There's a false assumption that porn use and addiction is "a men's issue," leaving women to struggle in silence. This week on The Forum we talked with Michelle Brock from Hope For The Sold. She talked about her work helping exploited women, and also about overcoming addiction.

If you're a parent, it can feel like there's a never ending stream of advice on how you should raise your kids. We were also joined on Sunday night by Callie Grant from Blanchard Inc. about lies Christian parents believe.

Plus our resident counselor Aaron Ironside had advice for someone whose had a falling out with a family member, and the Reverend Fank Ritchie pops in to talk about the decline of faith in New Zealand.

The Forum: How To Pray For The Marginalised + Spotting Fake News

There's so much difficult stuff happening in the world at the moment. It's easy to feel like we can't do anything to make things better. On the Forum this week we talked with Professors Anderson Campbell and Steve Sherwood from George Fox University about praying for justice. Also on Sunday night we were joined by author Tyler Huckabee - he took us through his top tips for spotting fake news.

Plus our usual contributors were in - The Reverend Frank Ritchie from Media Chaplaincy New Zealand took us through the spiritual significance of Waitangi day, and Dan took us through the week on social media.
