Chelsea Geyer, executive director of DC 127, stops by to talk about foster care and what it can teach us about demonstrating our faith in the public square. Then Center for Christian Civics executive director Rick Barry connects those ideas to the Advent season and leads us in prayer.
In the middle of a dispiriting season in our country, Steve Park, head of Little Lights Urban Ministries, talks about how he’s managed to stay active and motivated to do some very hard, dispiriting work for over twenty years. Then we will call specific attention to a few ideas that came up during the interview before we get led in prayer by Rev. Charles Drew.
