Is Christianity relevant for the 21st century? Christianity seems torn between the extremes of fundamenalist absolutism on one hand and progressives who are trying to find a way to appeal to diminishing congregations who are not finding relevance in the traditions so many of us were raised in.
Amos Smith finds answers to these questions by delving into Christianity's past to an era often overlooked in today's Christian traditions. The years between 312 and 454 C.,E. was an era of great enlighenment and understanding. God was at the center of faith and Jesus was seen as the example of how God was at work with humanity.
What did these 'Desert Fathers and Mothers' teach us? Join Amos Smith and me as we discuss his book, Healing the Divide, how Christianity is relevant to our times.
This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Jill Norgren about her book Rebels at the Bar.
In Rebels at the Bar, prize-winning legal historian Jill Norgren recounts the life stories of a small group of nineteenth century women who were among the first female attorneys in the United States. Beginning in the late 1860s, these determined rebels pursued the radical ambition of entering the then all-male profession of law. They were motivated by a love of learning. They believed in fair play and equal opportunity. They desired recognition as professionals and the ability to earn a good living.
Rebels at the Bar expands our understanding of both women’s rights and the history of the legal profession in the nineteenth century. It focuses on the female renegades who trained in law and then, like men, fought considerable odds to create successful professional lives. In this engaging and beautifully written book, Norgren shares her subjects’ faith in the art of the possible. In so doing, she ensures their place in history.
Jill Norgren is Professor Emerita of Political Science at John Jay College, and the Graduate Center of The City University of New York. She is the award winning author of many articles and books, including Belva Lockwood: The Woman Who Would Be President (NYU Press, 2007); The Cherokee Cases; and American Cultural Pluralism and Law (with Serena Nanda).

My next guest, Doctor of Ministry Eunice Schroeder, will take a look at what is happening in dissolving communication barriers regarding religion by looking at the trend towards pluralism, the plurality of religious traditions and cultures, as a place from which one can open dialogue with others of different religious beliefs and practices. According to Diana L Eck on her website, wwwpluralism.org, “The language of pluralism is that of dialogue and encounter, give and take, criticism and self-cr
Cosmic Citizen concludes our six-part series on Seraphic Planetary Government through our exploration of "The Unceasing Campaign of The Master Seraphim" with Neal Waldrop, Charles Olivea, and Bob Diebold. Neal will lead host Paula Thompson and cohosts Christilyn Larson and André Radatus through the remainder of this study. We conclude with Part VI: Destiny—Diversification, Decisions, and Dynamism.
Among other questions we ask: •As the master seraphim work with human beings, endeavoring to influence them toward decisions and actions that will lead to the progressive growth of human society and civilization, how can they also seek to promote diversity, pluralism, and mutual respect? • Do you believe that these capabilities of the master seraphim are so potent and so effective as to eliminate the possibility that humanity will encounter “hundreds and thousands of … comparatively useless combinations and associations” while society evolves during the next thousand years? •Do you suspect that the sovereignty and unpredictability of the human will—the vagaries of human choice—engenders unavoidable and, by many, unforeseen outcomes? •What strategies might the master seraphim adopt in order to diminish this "wasted motion" and "unproductive churning?" Do they allow problems now to improve long term events? This will conclude our fascinating six-part study.
