Jesus Can’t Breathe: a Spiritual Problem That Begs a Spiritual Response

My friend, Peter Heltzel, and a cohort of some 75 faith leaders in New York have called the lack of Police accountability in New York and elsewhere “a spiritual problem.” They’re right, and it’s a problem that requires a spiritual response. Those faith leaders converged on New York’s city hall for a “Die in” protest [Read More...]

A nun, an astrophysicist and a Post-Christian walk into a radio show…

I always enjoy chatting with radio talk show host Welton Gaddy, based out of Washington DC. His syndicated weekly show, in partnership with the Interfaith Alliance, airs on nine stations around the country. But they also rebroadcast the segments on their website.
