Here’s what’s coming up on the next State of Belief Radio:
Boston after the bombing. Rabbi Matt Soffer of Temple Israel in Boston attended the Interfaith service for the tragedy’s victims on Thursday. We’ll talk to Rabbi Soffer, a runner himself, about the impact of this attack on the city and on the marathon community, as well as about a faithful response to its devastation on spirits as well as bodies.
Also, catching up with Sister Simone Campbell (pictured at left with Welton at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC), Executive Director of NETWORK, a a National Catholic Social Justice Lobby. Despite a new pope, no sign of a softening of the Vatican’s hard line regarding American Women Religious – so now what? (Here’s a hint – the Nuns were in Austin Texas just this week, Bus and all!)
And Jeff Chu, author of the compelling new book, Does Jesus Really Love Me? A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America. This remarkable book collects stories from the intersection of LGBT lives and religious faith, and contextualizes them in an incredibly significant moment in American history for sexual minorities – and for faith leaders.
That’s all coming up next time, on State of Belief! Here’s how to listen.
