Interview with Dr. John Perkins

This video was recorded during my time speaking at Cornerstone Festival 2009 in July (there will be quite a few interviews to follow – sorry for the delay, they take quite a while to download, then upload, etc. Finding the time to do so is sometimes difficult).

Anyway, here is my interview with Dr. John Perkins. As I do with all my interviews, I ask two questions:

1. As a leader in the Christian community, what do you want to say to the GLBT community?

2. As a leader in the Church, what do you want to say to Christians about the GLBT community?

Here are links to racial reconciliation leader Dr. Perkins’ resources:
