Common Good Science - Consciousness and Quantum Cosmology

Philosopher and theologian David James Stewart joins Doug and Paul to wrestle with the big questions of consciousness and what it is that makes us human.

 

David James Stewart is an American theologian, philosopher, and amateur baseballer. Born in Minneapolis, Stewart is currently Adjunct Professor of Theology at St. Catherine University, Adjunct Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at The College of St. Scholastica, and Adjunct Professor of Theology at Luther Seminary. He earned a Ph.D. in theology from Luther, where he was trained in Western and continental traditions.

Common Good Issues - Hope and Forgiveness After the Charleston AME Church Massacre

Common Good Issues - Hope and Forgiveness After the Charleston AME Church Massacre

April 1, 2021

Today we are joined by Rev. Sharon Risher, author of For Such a Time as This: Hope and Forgiveness after the Charleston Massacre.

On June 17th, 2015, Rev. Sharon Risher learned her mother, two cousins, a childhood friend, and five others were killed in a mass shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. 

Since that time, Sharon has been very outspoken about the nation’s gun laws and is one of the spokespersons for the grassroots advocacy group Everytown Survivor Network and Moms Demand Gun Sense In America.  Sharon is also a leading spokesperson calling for an end to the federal death penalty with DeathPenaltyAction.org, even in the case of the white supremacist terrorist who killed her loved ones.
