Editor-in-Chief Richard Clark is joined by associate editor Erin Straza and staff writer Kara Bettis to talk about the shooting of Michael Brown and ongoing unrest in Ferguson, MO, specifically what the evangelical church's response has been and should be. Note: I was only at the demonstration site when things were peaceful--we headed home late Friday evening thinking things would continue to be calm from the day before, but there was an outbreak of violence soon after we left. So I can't add any insight as to the true balance of rioting and police instigation.
