Sen. Ben Sasse and Rev. Sam Ferguson: When a Senator Goes to Church…

Faith Angle

In this episode, twice-elected U.S. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) joins Rev. Dr. Sam Ferguson for a nuanced discussion of power and public service, contemporary media, spiritual disciplines, political stewardship, and the liturgical aspects of social media and public worship. Sen. Sasse names some fascinating things – including when and how he starts the workday; how many Elmers are in his Lutheran circle of grandparent farmers; his perspective on churchgoing; and how he looks back differently, now, on the stretch-years of early parenting. Ben is sometimes called “the intellectual of the Senate,” in the vein of the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, whose desk on the Senate floor he now occupies. Conversing with him is Rev. Dr. Sam Ferguson, who in May 2019 became rector of The Falls Church Anglican – a congregation where in 1791, George Washington served on the vestry. Guests: Ben Sasse Sam Ferguson Additional Resources: "A Time for Choosing" by Ben Sasse Them: Why We Hate Each Other - And How to Heal by Ben Sasse Falls Church Anglican Sermons by Sam Ferguson  Episode Transcript
