Have you ever been in a situation where you knew something unethical was going on? How did you react? There is a lot at stake in these moments. Taking action could bring negative consequences back upon us. It takes courage to stand up and question the status quo and the unethical dealings that may be happening. Asking questions often has consequences. What happens if I loose my job by asking this question? What happens if others actually feel the same way I do? How will I deal with the fallout? We have to decide what is worth fighting for.
Part 2 of our special reformation episode continues the story of Martin Luther who struggled with his own doubts, fears, and insecurities. And it drove him to ask a question that would begin a reformation that continues to affect us today.
There’s power in asking a question!
