I haven’t seen this level of activity and energy in all my 34 years in ministry in North Carolina. There’s a real energy in North Carolina among people of faith, and a real cohesion among those of us from very different traditions. So you could say the legislature has had a unifying effect on people of faith in North Carolina. – Rev. Jill Edens
Every Monday since late April, faith leaders and others have gathered – and even been arrested — in front of the North Carolina State House as they rally to stand up for the most vulnerable in society. On this week’s show, we hear from one of the arrested protestors, the Rev. Dr. Jill Edens, co-pastor of the United Church of Chapel Hill. Rev. Edens talks to Welton about this grassroots effort known as Moral Mondays started and where it’s headed.
