Did you have formal logic in school? I didn’t. As Kathy Gibbens was teaching her kids logic, she learned the importance of thinking clearly and logically herself. She recognized how helpful it is to have categories that bring order to confusing slogans and conversations. Amid the ramped-up rhetoric of 2020, Kathy launched a podcast to help train those of us who have never formally learned logic, so that we can learn not what to think but how to think. She joins me today to tell us her story and to walk us through a few of the common fallacies that people make when forming and defending their views.

Every day, social media feeds us messages like “follow your heart,” and “live your truth.” If we let these lies shape our beliefs, we ultimately end up exhausted and discouraged. Our next Lighthouse Voices event will address these appealing lies and help us respond to them with Christian wisdom. We’ll be joined by Alisa Childers, author of Live Your Truth and Other Lies. She’ll provide insight on how Christians can address faulty cultural slogans with wisdom, truth, and love. This free event will take place on Tuesday, November 7 at 7pm Mountain Time, and will be offered both online via livestream and in-person at Focus on the Family headquarters. Spaces are limited, so claim your spot today at colsoncenter.org/lighthousevoices.
Registration for our 2024 Colson Center National Conference – Courageous Faith – is now open! From May 30 – June 2, we’ll gather in Arlington, Texas at the brand-new Loews Hotel & Resort. We at the Colson Center believe every Christian can live like one. But we also know that, when the world around us is changing rapidly, it’s hard to know how to live as a Christian in this time and place. The Colson Center National Conference is a gathering of people who want to face today’s unique challenges with informed and courageous faith. This year’s gifted speakers include Sean McDowell, Neil Shenvi, Kathy Koch and more. They will help us tackle the complex worldview challenges of today with biblical insight and practical application. To register, go to colsonconference.org today.
The Strong Women Podcast is a product of the Colson Center which equips Christians to live out their faith with clarity, confidence, and courage in this cultural moment. Through commentaries, podcasts, videos, and more, we help Christians better understand what’s happening in the world, and champion what is true and good wherever God has called them.
