About this Episode

In this episode, Dan and former Senator Jim Talent discuss the timely questions: what are the responsibilities of a politician to the people they govern? What role does faith play in a Christian politician’s work? How should we adapt to the changing political landscape we find ourselves in? Senator Talent navigates these big questions with wisdom, honesty, and grace. He says that in politics, as in all things, the Lord cars both for the ends and the means.

Some questions for further reflection:

  • In your work, how do you navigate the tension between loyalty to outcome and loyalty to an institution? Put another way, which do you prioritize: process or result?
  • Do you ever have to do or say unpopular things in your work? What does that look like?
