Common Good Faith - The Spiritual Practice of Fasting

Common Good Faith - The Spiritual Practice of Fasting

April 14, 2021

With nearly two billion Muslims celebrating Ramadan this month, our panel of pastors discuss the spiritual practice of fasting and how it can help connect us to both the Divine and the suffering of our neighbors. 

Isaiah 58 describes fasting like this:

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard."

Dominique DuBois Gilliard is the Director of Racial Righteousness and Reconciliation for the Evangelical Covenant Church. He is the author of Rethinking Incarceration: Advocating for Justice that Restores, which won a 2018 Book of the Year Award for InterVarsity Press and was named Outreach Magazine’s 2019 Social Issues Resource of the Year.

In 2015, the Huffington Post named him one of the “Black Christian Leaders Changing the World.” Gilliard’s forthcoming book, Subversive Witness: Scripture’s Call to Leverage Privilege will be released on August 24, 2021.

Common Good Politics with Congresswoman Katie Porter

Common Good Politics with Congresswoman Katie Porter

April 13, 2021

Congresswoman Katie Porter joins hosts Doug Pagitt and Robb Ryerse to talk about politics for the common good and that legendary white board.

 

Congresswoman Katie Porter represents the California's 45th Congressional District and believes our democracy and government should reflect the people of America and serve their needs, not special interests or corporate donors. As a progressive, she’s a leader in the fight to protect taxpayers and crack down on waste, fraud, and abuse. In Congress, she’s a key voice for ending political corruption, increasing government transparency, and holding leaders of both parties accountable. She’s matched her commitment to transparency with concrete action by hosting regular town halls and publicly posting a list of meetings she takes.

Hope for Today from the Spirituality of Desmond Tutu

Hope for Today from the Spirituality of Desmond Tutu

April 12, 2021
Doug Pagitt talks with the Rev. Michael Battle author of "Desmond Tutu: A Spiritual Biography of South Africa's Confessor."
 
The first biography of its kind about Desmond Tutu, the book examines how his Christian mysticism shaped his commitment to restorative justice and reconciliation. Rev. Battle, director of the Desmond Tutu Center at General Theological Seminary, has known Archbishop Tutu for more than 25 years, and has seen up close his deep spirituality, rooted in ancient Christian practice, and in the African concept of Ubuntu, human interdependence.

“Tutu’s life and work are crucial for both the wellbeing of the world and the survival of the church that seem equally bent toward crisis and culture wars,” Rev. Battle says.
