This week we'll be discussing the case of Chris Harris, a school board member from a small town in Northeast Texas who shared racist views on Facebook following the acquittal of Darren Wilson and rioting in Ferguson, MO. Images of those racist statements were posted to Logicast host Jared Smith's blog, where the story was picked up by the national media and went viral. The ensuing coverage has left a small town deeply divided and Chris Harris has now tendered his resignation.

I found out at the Labor Temple on Thursday night that a standing board member who does not face re-election is the treasurer or one of the higher posts on David Kirby's election committee. This is a conflict of interest. It is a conflict of interest because there is a lot of ingrained, concrete power struggles on the board with 5 dominant members and 2 outcasts. It is important that each candidate presents themselves with a fresh voice with no political allies that will stir up old rivalries. This topic will be discussed and also the bad decision by the local labor organization in Duluth to support a candidate with no background in blue collar labor.

On this edition of Soul Winner Radio, Tony will interview his friend, Jorge Vasquez. Jorge, by all worldly accounts, should have been a statistic. He was a member of one of the world's most notorious and dangerous street gangs, both in Honduras and Los Angeles. He was also an interstate drug runner, until he was arrested and sent to prison.
While in prison, Jorge heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and came to genuine repentance and faith. His story of salvation by the grace of God alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone will encourage and challenge you.
Christian: this will be an episode you will want to share with your unsaved friends.
