    The Archibald Project produces stories that increase the number of people caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.
    There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in this world, and caring for any of those children is a complex issue. That's why Whitney and Nick's work is so important. Their resources provide people with the encouragement, answers, and support they need to thrive in their activism.

    The Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19

    The Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19

    The Asian American Christian Collaborative (AACC) is committed to amplifying the voices, issues, and histories of Asian Americans, both within the church and society at large. Specifically, in this season, they have created a statement titled the “Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19”. It says, in part: “We, the undersigned, join together as Asian American Christians and community leaders to denounce the current rise in overt anti-Asian racism throughout our country."

    Today, we speak with three of the drafters of this statement: Pastor Raymond Chang, Pastor Gabriel J. Catanus, and Rev. Dr. Jeff M. Liou.

    Rev. Michael Mather, From Poverty to Abundance

    As a young pastor, Rev. Michael Mather was sent to a church whose glory days were behind it. Yet in the midst of a community in transition, Rev. Mather began to see the congregation not as a group in decline – but a vibrant collection of people who weren’t being asked the right questions. This week, Rev. Mather shares his inspiring journey of finding abundance in the unexpected.

Ideas, encouragement, and inspiration

I’ve loved listening to the New Activist podcast for the past couple of years! As a social entrepreneur, I covet the fresh and inspiring stories of how others are making the world a better place.

Also, I HIGHLY recommend an interview with 100 Fold Studio, an innovative nonprofit architecture form that elevates the human spirit in some of the most needy places all over the world.

You ask great questions!

Challenging

I love this podcast and how it challenges the way I view the world and the way I interact with people around me who look, think, and act differently than I do.
