On the dawn of election day 2016 Jeff, Mona and Allen discuss compassion fatigue. What do you do when you’re tired of caring? When you’re tired of believing anything is going to change? These are questions many people who desire to be a part of a bigger solution face. And although no one really has the answers, it helps to talk about it and know we are not alone in our occasional desire to give up. And since it is election day we close out the episode with our own exercise in democracy in a segment called Biblical Elections.
