As the Genocide escalates in Darfur, the In His Shoes mission turned its focus to more creative means of activism. This podcast is uniquely dedicated to the Darfur Genocide, but much more, it is about the faith and hope in the power of good. Here, Fr. Vazken guides the listener through an exercise in spiritual and moral warfare against evil. Complacency and indifference are constants that keep us from peace and harmony in our lives as well as on our planet. Martin King equates silence over crime with cooperation of evil, laying the groundwork for the moral-impera

Sister Jenna welcomes Andrea Herz Payne to the America Meditating Radio Show!
With a deep background in performance and an abiding passion for people, Andrea Herz Payne has cultivated the use of her voice for very specific and meaningful purposes.

In her current role as Co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Aid Still Required, Andrea’s vision, and determination have resulted in inspiring exceptionally high-profile, fundraising and media tools such as a CD compilation featuring top name musical artists to benefit survivors of the 2004 tsunami, NBA outreach, and a segment on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and George Clooney about the Darfur conflict.

Chances are you've heard snippets about Darfur - in the classroom, at work, on the news. But how much do you really know? If you're like us, you know that bad things are happening there; child soldiers, genocide, and war crimes come to mind. But how did the conflict start? Who is responsible? What can we do to help? In tonight's episode of Ethics Talk, we ask you to join us in reviewing the film 'Darfur Now' and in discussing these and other questions.
Due to technical difficulties, we had a hard time interviewing our guest, so we discussed some of the breaking news of the day, including the recent Stephen Collins scandal.

Will and Mike discuss the events and politics of Darfur's battle against terrorism.
While the conflict and bloodshed in Sudan’s Darfur region have received much attention from the international press and human rights groups, other conflicts in the country — in the north, the south and in the central Nuba Mountains — have largely remained outside the spotlight.
Worldfocus.org’s weekly radio show will explore tensions in South Sudan, the site of a two-decade civil war between the Muslim north and mostly Christian south that killed more than 1.5 million people. The south is also home to 80 percent of Sudan’s oil.
The war came to an end in 2005 with the signing of a peace agreement that exempted the south from Islamic Sharia law and established a regional southern government as well as a system of shared oil revenues. But with increasingly deadly tribal violence in South Sudan and a humanitarian crisis that could soon eclipse that in Darfur, trouble is brewing once more.
In a conference on Sudan in Washington this week, leaders from the north and south pledged to avoid a return to war.
South Sudan is set for a referendum on independence in 2011 and many in the region hope that the vote will allow a break from Khartoum once and for all, creating a new African nation. Others remain wary, pointing to corruption and incompetence on the part of South Sudan’s government and accusing leaders of squandering oil revenues.
Our online radio show on Tuesday, June 30 at 6:30 p.m. EDT will explore the roots of conflict in South Sudan and the movement for secession, looking at the dire conditions in the south and connections between other conflicts in the country.
