This was a stirring piece of work: spirituality and justice combine in remarkable fashion. If you are looking to broaden your faith and let it be more than mere sentimentality, you will be inspired by this podcast. If you want your justice commitments to be grounded in spiritual disciplines and practices - you will also find this enriching.
