    The Corner of Praise + Protest | Common Hymnal

    The Corner of Praise + Protest | Common Hymnal

    Shane Claiborne speaks with Seaux Chill and Vincent Charlow from Common Hymnal and what it means to make a difference as a Christian.

    "Institutional Christianity is going through a great shaking. None of us know exactly what tomorrow holds, but one thing is sure - the church is changing. Escapism is being challenged by realism. Dualism by integration. Status quo by social activism. Judgmentalism by compassion. Exclusion by inclusion. Hierarchy by democratization. Colonization by the celebration of BIPOC leadership. In the process, praise and protest are becoming inextricably intertwined, and the spiritual underground is is giving us more and more clues as to what's around the corner."  -- from https://commonhymnal.com/

    Remembering Ron Sider | Christians for Social Action

    In this special two-part episode, we are celebrating the life and work of long-time RLC friend, Ron Sider, by sharing two older episodes fro 2018 and 2019 combined here in one. Ron passed away last week. He was the founder of Christians For Social Action (formerly Evangelicals for Social Action), and author of about 50 books including “Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger” but most importantly, he was also a dear friend and part of RLC from the very beginning.  We ask for you to keep Arbutus, his wife, and the rest of his family and friends in prayer during this time.

    Book Club | Waging Peace with Diana Oestreich

    "A beautiful and gut-wrenching memoir, Waging Peace exposes the false divide between loving our country and living out our faith's call to love our enemies--whether we perceive our enemy as the neighbor with an opposing political viewpoint, the clerk wearing a head-covering, or the refugee from a war-torn country. By showing that us-versus-them is a false choice, this book will inspire each of us to choose love over fear." - from https://www.dianaoestreich.com/waging-peace
