On September 26, Swiss voters will decide whether gays and lesbians have the right to marry and form a family. Those in favor of “marriage for all” are very likely to win as they represent the majority of the population.
In episode 10 of the Didomi Podcast, Marc Jost will share with us why he’s campaigning against “Marriage for All,” how Christians can speak truth with grace in a polarized context, and how we can pray for him, for the churches and for Switzerland. Marc is General Secretary of the Swiss Evangelical Alliance and Chair of Interaction – Christian Evangelical NGOs platform. Twitter @marcjost (https://www.twitter.com/marcjost).
Episode co-host Manal El Tayar joins us from the Lebanese mountains, and updates us on the situation in Lebanon and shares with us her prayer requests. Manal is the Regional Fragile States and Peacebuilding Advisor with TearFund.
Additional co-hosts are Wissam al-Saliby, Advocacy Officer with the World Evangelical Alliance, based in Geneva, Twitter @walsaliby (https://twitter.com/walsaliby), and Arie De Pater, Brussels Representative for the European Evangelical Alliance, Twitter @ariedep (https://twitter.com/ariedep).
