All life is hope with Shane Claiborne: Compass episode 45

Maybe you’re a bit tense right now. We’re in a tense season–the pandemic, the coming of Fall, the election in the U.S. likely have us a little more on edge than normal.

But there’s a lot to hope for in this season, too.

Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author.  Prior to writing books, Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia.  He now heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living “as if Jesus meant the things he said.” Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. Now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty and help stop gun violence.

Shane talked about hope during this tense season, about how faith informs our politics, about how we get involved in justice work, and how we can maintain some spiritual momentum when things feel like they’re going backwards. Such good stuff…
