"It will suck people out of any kind of boredom,
bring them to the edge of their seats and
get them ready for discussion." — Brian McLaren

Tony Jones spoke with us Thursday (we will play the pre-recorded interview at the start of the show) giving us an overview of a new resource from Spark House called "Animate Faith." Animate Faith is a seven-session adult course designed to engage the faith-hungry person. It features speakers on the following topics:

• Brian McLaren | God: Faith Is a Quest
• Lillian Daniel | Religion: Spirituality Is Not Enough
• Mark Scandrette | Jesus: Revolution of Love
• Shane Hipps | Salvation: Abundant Life Now
• Nadia Bolz-Weber | Cross: Where God Is
• Lauren Winner | Bible: A Book Like No Other
• Bruce Reyes-Chow | Church: An Imperfect Family

The program is a very well calculated experiment in using great visual contemporary media in ministry and religious work to reach youth today. Each conversation jump starts a collaborative creative process. Animate Faith invites practitioners from across the country (and the globe) to develop new resources, whether they be In-person, or virtual. Whatever it takes to fulfill their mission. 

Some of the above presenters will be will be live with us on the air, in coming weeks, and for this show. We hope that some who have experienced the series first hand will call in as well. Your calls and questions are also welcome at: 646.716.8158, the Tony Jones interview will pay in the first 40 minutes. Please join us!
