MLK, Isaiah, Sinai and the Prophetic Voice Within Us
Rabbi Arthur Waskow
Founder (1983) and director, The Shalom Center

Lynn R. Huber
Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Elon University
This personal and institutional modesty appeals to many U.S. Catholics, especially those who had been put off by the seeming arrogance of the Vatican. Reflecting this change 88 percent of U.S. Catholics think Francis is doing a good job in his role as Pope.

Rev. Dr. Gregory Lee Cuéllar
Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Austin Presbyterian Theo...

Rev. Dr. Chuck Currie
Director of the Center for Peace and Spirituality and Universi...
As a minister, I want both reconciliation and justice. If you think there is no racism in this nation, you are willfully blind. If you believe there has been no progress towards racial justice, your eyes are not open.
Justice Not Triage: The Year Of The Protester
Rabbi Lawrence Troster
Eco-Theologian, Educator and Environmental Activist
This corporate triage is what lies behind the arrogance of the 1 percent in their treatment of the 99 percent. The result of this triage is societal unrest, instability and an inevitable increase in violence, poverty, disease and war.

Stumbling Into Easter: The Of-Courseness of God
Barbara Falconer Newhall
Author of the prize-winning "Wrestling with God: Stories of Do...
For most of my adult life I haven't been so sure about God. That such a mighty and glorious thing could exist seems far-fetched. And the Easter news -- of the Resurrection -- has seemed way too good to be true.
Why We Read from Isaiah On Yom Kippur
Founding Director, Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel
Isaiah is just as relevant today as he was in his own time, in the 8th century BCE. His words of com fort and hope -- and his reminder that we need to put social justice at the heart of our Jewish lives-- are as vital and meaningful for contemporary Israeli society as they were in the past.
