progressive christian radio

I'm back from the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's going to take a little time to process my trip and to get back into the swing of things. Life in the US is very different from life in central Africa.

While I'm getting my thoughts together, I thought I'd lift up - for all who are interested - a radio show hosted by United Methodist pastor Rich Lang. It's called "Living Faith Now" and it can be accessed via the internet at www.livingfaithnow.org. Rich's ministry follows in the footsteps of great liberation theologians, process theologians, and those who have ministered with the least and the last. Rich desires to offer a voice within religious dialogue that counters the pro-militaristic, pro-nationalistic, pro-apocalyptic voices that so often dominate Christian discourse.

Rich Lang says, "'Living Faith Now' is an attempt to create a 'public space,' both through live radio and as an ongoing resource on the web, for our congregations, both to hear an alternative Christian spirituality, and to share this alternative spirituality with others...Living Faith Now is an attempt to present an alternative expression of Christian faith. We are engaging the tough issues like homosexuality, militarism, the global economy, and core issues of meaning and purpose and direction in life."
