“Kresta in the Afternoon”— September 15, 2014— Hour 1

  • Series Details: This program is part of a series titled kpm_20140915_1.mp3.

+ Segment #1 of 3

Teachable Moments: Using Everyday Encounters with Media and Culture to Instill Conscience, Character and Faith.

  • Description: Never have Christian families been so challenged by the world around them to instill and instruct their children in the tenets of their faith. Moral relativism literally seeps into every facet of family life and saturates our popular culture. A ubiquitous media presence that defines our daily experience also is defining the attitudes and behaviors of those who consume it. Yet within this pervasive secular culture, Christian families encounter “teachable moments,” those unplanned but unmatched opportunities to put their faith into action and live out the values and virtues embodied in Jesus Christ. When looking for teachable moments, parents, and coaches must approach each day with intentionality, seeking out and capitalizing on opportunities to incorporate life lessons into every day experiences amid the culture. Author Marybeth Hicks joins us to discuss her latest book.

From Communist to Free-Market Inner-City Povery Fighter

  • Description: As Founder of the Freedom & Virtue Institute, Ismael Hernandez has been working to raise those in inner-city poverty out of their trap. Ismael is here to examine strategies to improve the socio-economic conditions of inner cities in North America. Fragile urban infrastructures are often vulnerable to patterns that impede human flourishing. He presents an alternate vision for personal and communal uplift based on local entrepreneurial initiative.
  • Segment Guests:
    • Ismael Hernandez
      Founder of the Freedom & Virtue Institute. He grew up in Puerto Rico as the son of a committed Marxist and a founding member of the Socialist Party. When he came to America to attend graduate school, his experiences began to slowly shatter his preconceived notions about this country. He was embraced by Americans and given opportunities he could never have imagined. He began to read writings of and about America’s Founding Fathers and learned the principles of America’s origins. At this point he began to believe in the truth of freedom and reject the lies of socialism. Ismael finished his Masters Degree in Political Sciences and soon after, he became the executive director of the African Caribbean American Catholic Center in the Catholic Diocese of Venice.
