Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of being interviewed by Ethel Chadwick on her “Bagels and Blessings” radio program. We talked about a number of things regarding the Shoah, to include speculating as to why a kind of “Holocaust Avoidance Syndrome” seems to be at work in the spirit of the times, and why even sincere, devoted Evangelical Christians fail to see the teaching and memorialization of the Holocaust as intrinsic to their mission of spreading the good news, the Besorat HaGeulah, that is, the “Tidings of Redemption” to all people here on earth.
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with Ethel so much as she is a gifted and vivacious host, passionate in her work to spread discussion of important subjects throughout the believing – Messianic and Christian – universe. It was a lively discussion that she considered one of the most “interesting she’s had.” A blessing, indeed. It certainly was from my point of view, most refreshing and invigorating to find someone as stimulated and intrigued by this idea of taking responsibility for the past as I am. Check out Bagels & Blessings. It’s alot of blessing, with none of the calories in a bagel.
Below is the link to the interview. Have a listen and please contact me to let me know what your own thoughts on the subject are, or aren’t, as the case may be:
