Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re talking about the “Asbury Revival,” currently taking place at Asbury University in Kentucky. Last week, after a regular weekly chapel service at the university, students didn’t leave. Instead, they continued worshiping and have not stopped for over 130 hours and counting. There have been reports of people traveling cross-country to experience this unplanned event, and many have claimed it’s unlike other “revivals” that have left some skeptical. We cover the important questions that need to be asked, such as whether the gospel is actually being preached and what kind of teaching is happening in the midst of worship. We provide some encouragement and challenge for Asbury students, who have the potential to use this “revival” for God’s glory even after it’s over. Then, we take a look at Chelsea Handler’s obsession with being childless. While guest-hosting “The Daily Show” last week, Handler did both a monologue and a skit about how “free” she is because she doesn’t have kids, and she was … really trying hard to convince us. We break down how sad it is that she feels a need to berate motherhood and children in her tirade and explain why her argument that she can do whatever she wants could very well also be true right now even if she had had children.
