On the next State of Belief Radio –
After the government shutdown: a $24 billion toll to our economy; but what are the costs to our communities? Minnesota organizer and activist Doran Schranz, Executive Director of Minnesota’s ISAIAH, explains what Washington politicians don’t get about the impact of their actions.
The Rev. Jim Wallis, editor-in-chief of Sojourner’s was among the faith leaders that took part in a “faithful filibuster” of public prayer at the US Capitol Building. He’ll be here to talk about why, and what it was like. His latest book is On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned about Serving the Common Good.
And the Rev. Brian McLaren says there are not enough Christians speaking out when fellow Christians suffer around the world. We’ll discuss the reality of the loss of “religious liberty” around the world even as that phrase is cheapened and pressed into the service of those who fight for the right to discriminate here at home.
Plus a thought or two about the Senate chaplain’s stern words that earned him a parody on Saturday Night Live.
That’s all coming up this weekend on State of Belief! Here’s how to listen.
