Christian Talk Radio? Christians who are serious about their faith may, frankly, feel a bit “icky” at the thought that what passes for “Christian Talk Radio” today is assumed to represent their beliefs! Why? There’s such a high volume of poor quality Christian Talk Radio shows! Sometimes it seems like every conspiracy theorist “looney tunes” talk radio hosts calls himself a “Christian”, when most church going folks would really shudder and the idiocy being passed off as “theology” or their theology!
Of course it’s not all bad, just as not all talk radio is bad. It’s just that it takes so much effort to sort the good from the bad, after a while someone might as well just start listening to cats fight.
Unlike some fever brained “Christian” talk show hosts, Carmen actually has a graduate degree – a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary no less (M.Div. 1993) – and served as a pastor in a denomination where ministers actually have background checks and some form of scrutiny before being allowed to “pastor,” unlike many nondenominational churches. Her church based ministry lasted from 1993 to 2009.
Sickened by the apostasy of the “mainline church”, for the last seven years she has served as the executive director of the Presbyterian Lay Committee a leading “mainline renewal” organization helping Christians within America’s oldest churches remain faithful to the doctrinal standards and moral positions their churches claimed to believe.
In her position as a mainline renewal leader, she has worked with key Christian leaders from America and internationally. She’s respected as a spokesperson renowned for Christian faithfulness. When a leader of this quality enters the field of Christian talk radio, you can expect the programming to receive a major quality upgrade!
Now that folks know that Carmen isn’t some religious wacko, people will be pleased to know that the small circle of leaders she’s served for 7 years at Layman.org is expanding. She’s making her connections and experience available to Christians all across the spectrum… anyone with a radio to listen! Christian Talk Radio has finally moved from entertainment to discipleship so that Christians can be equipped to speak wisely to the issues of the day without rancor and with intelligence.
“Our goal is to help reconnect the eternal to the everyday and help bring God back into every conversation. There are important discussions happening all around us- at work, around the table, or with our neighbors. But too often Christians are sitting on the sidelines, unsure how to jump in. Or we are presenting our own perspective without thinking how God would have us respond. But if we, as God’s people, don’t present His perspective, who will? Whether we are talking about the election and the headlines or trends in the culture, on The Reconnect, we want to help people speak with the mind of Christ in all things.”
Joining her to do that are some of the best Christian thinkers, teachers, and apologists available. Her overflowing to Rolodex of contacts is suddenly Christian Talk Radio’s “Applied Theology” class of the air.
Carmen’s program just started April 4, 2016. Get in on the ground floor and don’t miss an episode of your soon to be “favorite” Christian talk radio show!
