Spirit In Action
Each week, Spirit In Action brings you stories of people living lives of fruitful service, of peace, community, compassion, creative action and progressive efforts. We'll trace the spiritual roots that support and nourish them in their service. Above all, we'll seek out Light, Love and Helping Hands, being shared between our many neighbors on this planet, hoping to inspire and encourage you to sink deep roots and produce sacred fruit in your own life.

Spirit In Action is an hour of interviews with those providing leadership in peace, justice and "good works", interspersed with relevant music.

The theme music is "The Turning of the World" performed by Sara Thomsen (written by Ruth Pellham) and "I Have No Hands But Yours" by Carol Johnson

Doom & Bloom With Extinction Rebellion

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:
Atheist, Catholic Worker, Lutheran, Meditation, Quaker, Secular Humanist
 
Extinction Rebellion has a take on addressing the climate crisis that is refreshing, since their plan is to step pass the log-jam of the political process in the US, and taking the power right back to the people. And instead of talking about things like carbon neutrality by 2050 or the like, their plan is to do it by 2025. Impossible is not in the vocabulary of Extinction Rebellion, and they've already got a hefty track record to show they can get things done. Daniel Yildirim is what they call a mass mobilizer for this area of the country, operating out of Viroqua, Wisconsin.  [ More... ]    [ Excerpts ]
