Welcome to the podcast of the Faith and Justice Network, where we are seeking faith and learning justice, because we believe the two belong together, that they lie at the very heart of what it means to follow Jesus.

    21. The Sound of the Genuine

    21. The Sound of the Genuine

    Liz Lin and Peter Choi discuss Cole Arthur Riley’s book and webinar, which occurred at our fall gathering in Denver. They cover a range of topics including Howard Thurman’s invitation to hear the sound of the genuine, the doctrine of total depravity, internalized racism, the hubris behind some projects of evangelization, and their own spiritual journeys. A surprising realization (confession?) at the end that one of them may still be an evangelical brings this episode to a sudden conclusion, to be continued next time!
