Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio:
Religion as a force for good – and the growing push for faith-based activism around issues of economic justice, immigration, voting rights, gun violence, and more. From the Vatican to North Carolina, a diverse but focused movement is building that has the potential to effect real change – for the better.
As a follow-up to our four-part series “A Prophetic Vision for A New Year: Where We’re Going, How We’ll Get There,” Welton will be talking with Huffington Post Senior Religion Editor Paul Raushenbush, and Auburn Seminary President Katherine Henderson.
We’ll also hear from Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom, on ways the media can help – but also hurt – this effort.
Welton also recommends you take a little Olympics-viewing time to read this in-depth article by author and journalist Jeff Sharlet: Inside the Iron Closet: What It’s Like to Be Gay in Putin’s Russia
