Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
It’s been one year since Ferguson. What progress have we made on the race and justice front? We’ll ask the Rev. Leah Gunning Francis. Her new book is titled, Ferguson and Faith: Sparking Leadership and Awakening Community.
Also, the Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, has a new memoir out. He’ll be with us to discuss God and Government: Twenty-Five Years of Fighting for Equality, Secularism and Freedom of Conscience.
And we’ll kick off the lead-up to the 10th anniversary of State of Belief with a conversation Welton had in 2006 with Pulitzer Prize Winner Jon Meacham about his book American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation.
Plus, a guest commentary on recent extremist violence in Israel from Interfaith Alliance Executive Director Rabbi Jack Moline.
