ABOUT THE SHOW
The Frederick Faith Debate is an open and honest forum for our local faith community leaders to share and discuss their views of the truth.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom”. In that spirit, we seriously wrestle with important ideas… and are free to disagree with one another.
The hope is that through our wrestling we will develop a better understanding of the truth about the most important issues that face us in this world.
If you are a local faith community leader, or know one that would like to participate in a future roundtable, please contact Troy Skinner at the offices of WFMD. Also, if you have a topic you’d like to hear discussed or a question you'd like answered, please share that, as well.

“I want to go (on a mission). But I have doubts. The NBA is the biggest dream of basketball players, and I'm no different.” Jabari Parker to Sports Illustrated
Church president Thomas S. Monson announced Saturday at the 182nd Semiannual General Conference that Mormon men who have graduated from high school may now go on their two-year missions at 18 rather than the previous age of 19.
"I am not suggesting that all young men will -- or should -- serve at this earlier age," Monson said. "Rather, based on individual circumstances, as well as upon a determination by priesthood leaders, this option is now available. ... We affirm that missionary work is a priesthood duty -- and we encourage all young men who are worthy and who are physically able and mentally capable, to respond to the call to serve."
Parker, who is Mormon and will turn 18 in March, had a previous plan of attending college for at least one year and then possibly deciding whether to go on a mission or enter the NBA draft. Parker told Sports Illustrated he was torn between heading on a mission and his dream of playing in the NBA.
Parker cut his list of schools he was considering to five on Friday. His list consists of BYU, Duke,
"When he's 18 and if he did want to go on a mission, he can now," Parker's father Sonny Parker said on Monday. "He has to decide whether or not (he wants to). He hasn't decided one way or another. We've talked about it.
"If he's going at 18, he would go to a mission and then possibly go to college or to the NBA. I know his situation is different than a lot of people. We'll just see."
Parker's brother, Christian Parker, served a mission from 2006-08 after red-shirting one basketball season at BYU-Hawaii. Following his mission, Christian played at
"When he came from his mission, we talked a lot about it," Jabari told Sports Illustrated. "I want to go (on a mission). But I have doubts. The NBA is the biggest dream of basketball players, and I'm no different."
Sonny said the family has also spoken to Mormon and former NFL quarterback Steve Young and other professional athletes who opted not to go on a mission.
"We've got a lot of information on it," Sonny said. "We've talked to Steve Young, who didn't go on a mission. Some people have kind of served a mission without them going on it, kind of doing the same work through the church, still making a difference. We talked about it."
Sonny said Parker has also set up his official visits. He will travel to
Parker also visited his doctor on Monday and was told he had 4-6 weeks before the fracture in his right foot is completely healed, according to Sonny. Parker is scheduled to begin rehab in two weeks.
As a junior, Parker was named the ESPN Chicago.com Player of the Year,
