Context Beyond The Headlines

Context Beyond The Headlines

6 Seasons

Currently in its 20th season, Context is Christian analysis on the news and current events that shape our lives. We join with all faith communities to make sense of our world, and find harmony. Context’s distinctive voice and style gives viewers a perspective they don’t get to hear in mainstream media.

From the COVID-19 pandemic, global refugee crisis, First Nations issues, climate change, and assisted dying – to the Humboldt Bronco’s bus tragedy, Las Vegas shootings, Paris attacks, the North Toronto van attack, civil war in Syria, Tree of Life Synagogue tragedy, and the Texas church killings – Context’s reporters go live on location to provide a lens on how God is at work in our world and in the stories that impact all of us.
