Healing What's Broken
Krista Tippett is my hero. She helms the American Public Media radio program, On Being (formerly Speaking of Faith) that airs on NPR. In this current political atmosphere of demonizing and fear-mongering, she has brought together people who represent the opposite sides of four polarizing issues in something she calls the Civil Conversations Project. Tackling the touchy subjects of abortion, marriage, Christians and social good, and building political bridges, Krista brings about a dialog that is meaningful, hopeful, and transformative. Listen to it! Learn from it. Then do what you can in your own life, among your friends and families, to bring about the real change that our country so desperately needs. Reach across the metaphorical aisle.
