In the first half-hour, Dan Furmansky, Campaign Manager for the Standing on the Side of Love Campaign (www.standingonthesideloflove.org), talks about how Unitarian Universalists and their interfaith partners are coming together to harness the power of love to stop oppression of migrants and immigrants as well as of LGBT people. In the second half-hour, Rev. John T. Crestwell, Jr. shares how he came to be the preacher for the "mega-church"-style Sunday morning worship Service at Justice General Assembly in Phoenix, his love for and disappointments with Unitarian Universalism, and how he sees the connections between all people, regardless of ethnicity or documentation status. He is Associate Minister at the UU Church of Annapolis, Md., and author of *The Charge of the Chalice".

*The Journey Toward Phoenix* is a weekly radio blog intended to inform, entertain and inspire those who are attending or may attend Justice General Assembly, June 20-24, 2012, and to create a national dialogue about what Unitarian Universalists are doing in their local communities relative to the UUA theme of "Immigration as a Moral Issue".

The host of *The Journey Toward Phoenix* is Rev. Carlton Elliott Smith, one of three ministers serving the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, Virginia. He is a member of both the Resources "Brain Trust" and the Program Development Group for Justice GA 2012.
