SORT BY Relevancy
Shane Claiborne graduated from Eastern University and did graduate work at Princeton Seminary. In 2010, he received an Honorary Doctorate from Eastern. His adventures have taken him from the streets of Calcutta where he worked with Mother Teresa to the wealthy suburbs of Chicago where he served at the influential mega-church Willow Creek. As a peacemaker, his journeys have taken him to some of the most troubled regions of the world – from Rwanda to the West Bank – and he’s been on peace delegations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Shane is a founder and board member of The Simple Way, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world. He is married to Katie Jo, a North Carolina girl who also fell in love with the city (and with Shane). They were wed in St. Edwards church, the formerly abandoned cathedral into which homeless families relocated in 1995, launching the beginning of the Simple Way community and a new phase of faith-based justice making.
Shane writes and travels extensively speaking about peacemaking, social justice, and Jesus.
His work has appeared in Esquire, SPIN, Christianity Today, and The Wall Street Journal, and he has been on everything from Fox News and Al Jazeera to CNN and NPR. He’s given academic lectures at Harvard, Princeton, Brown, Liberty, Duke, and Notre Dame.
ORDER IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION
EVANGEL PACIFIC RADIO PRESENTS...This Special Broadcast.
Pastor Will Griffith is joined by R&B Legend and contemporary peacemaker Timmy Thomas, along with his management team, Steve Tucker and Frank Levy. This is an EPR Exclusive interview on the eve of the launch of Thomas' WE CAN LIVE TOGETHER World Peace Campaign.
In 1972, Timmy Thomas was watching the evening news hosted by Walter Cronkite. Mr. Cronkite was reporting on the Vietnam war, and the thousands of American and Viet Cong soldiers that had died in battle. Timmy thought "Why Can't We Live Together". This thought became a song that was embraced by millions.
The song was initially banned in South Africa during Apartheid, yet it became their national anthem at Nelson Mandela's inauguration, where Timmy performed live in front of 200,000 people.
Timmy has had other hits world wide, as well as having his songs placed in movies such as Boys Don't Cry, C.R.A.Z.Y., Dick, Radio, and Bachelor Party. Over 100 artists including Sade, Steve Winwood, Santana, and Joan Osborne have covered "Why Can't We Live Together".
Timmy has always lived his life for peace and love, from marching peacefully with Dr. Martin Luther King, to traveling to Haiti as an airline ambassador setting up safe houses for children that have been human trafficking victims.
Innocent children are being killed by war, in the streets, and in our schools. Peace is needed now more than ever! So, he is reaching out to renowned artists in the epic remake "Why Can't We Live Together",
KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR WORLD PEACE
In this Special Wednesday Broadcast on EPR, Pastor Will Griffith revisits the story of Sodom & Gomorrah and addressed the use of fundamentalist Christians who use the text to validate their positions on LGBT people and examines the real sin of the region. Pastor Will covers Genesis in this first of an on-going series, and will be addressing the issue of homosexuality in the New Testament in the future of this series. This broadcast is a journey with Pastor Will back into the days of Abraham and through the events that brought the eventual destruction on Sodom & Gomorrah.

In this special broadcast on the eve of Veteran's Day, Rev. Dr. Ross Riggs addresses the importance of the Body of Jesus Christ and all of the parts working together for the whole.
In this special EPR broadcast, Pastor Will Griffith draws from his short essay, 'Measuring the Heartbeat of the Church' and talks about perspective and seeing things from another vantage point. Pastor Will contends that Jesus Himself began looking at the 'Big Picture' from the very start and not simply at this world alone. We, as followers of Christ, must do the same. Rather than look at and to this world alone, to begin looking at the larger scope of our walk with Him, says Pastor Will.

EPR (EOTM Public Relations) -- The EOTM "Entrepreneurs On The Move" Awards will come later than originally planned, due to deadlines and venue changes. The overwhelming response and massive overflow of nominees and corporate interest was also taken in consideration.
The EOTM Awards committee will be moving their festivities from early November 2, 2014 to March 1, 2015, and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Its a necessity so we can secure a venue large enough to handle the throngs expected to attend, said Carla Simpson," president of the organization. “Volume is definitely a good problem to have, so we are geeked,” Simpson said.
The festivities launch February 27, 2015 through March 1, 2015. Organizers of the three-day event also released another nugget for their 2nd year and beyond.
The awards show will also launch a mini tour, Nevada in 2015, Atlanta, Georgia in 2016 and New York in 2017.

"In an effort to honor entrepreneurs everywhere we decided for the first 4 years, taking our show to major markets where entrepreneurs are thriving the most. Cities that topped the list were Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas and Atlanta. What better way to pay homage to entrepreneurs that are doing their part, changing our world for the better," Simpson added.
