Hope Presbyterian Church, Wheaton, IL
All faiths teach love. But the practice of love is often too weak to overcome cultural and political differences that tear societies apart, leaving people and other species destroyed.

It’s equally true that the story of different faiths cannot be told without speaking of the many times love transcends differences and solidifies united actions for justice, peace, and the common good.

This story of how faith differences divide, but just as surely how they come together in ways that transform people, societies, and the faiths themselves is the focus of this podcast. And it can happen in a local congregation. That’s what you’re about to hear in this conversation with Jay Moses, pastor of Hope Church (a Presbyterian congregation), in Wheaton, Illinois. Interviewing Jay was special for me (Lee) since I pastored Hope Church between 1989 and 1999.

Our “Common Good Feature” in this episode tells how Latino activism, especially through the Brown Berets, works for the common good from a position of being suppressed by the dominant systems of U.S. society.

Previous Episodes

Grace Gyori tells how her experiences as a missionary moved from Christian imperialism to liberation for all. She and Tom, her husband, were early founders of Jubilee Economics Ministries. Tom died in 2016. While in Guatemala, the two were not there to evangelize but to work alongside of the local leaders. Their spirit was not imperial, but liberationist, seeking justice for all, giving up the notion that one had to be Christian or that others were inferior.

John Dear, Author and Peace/NonViolence Activist, describes how nonviolent peacemaking is MORE powerful than violence. He is the author of numerous books, the most recent, “They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace and NonViolence in a Time of Climate Change.”
