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

Bible Bash For Good

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:
Quaker, UCC - United Church of Christ
 
The Bible Bash Podcast is hosted on Northern Spirit Radio because of the way that Peterson Toscano of Citizen's Climate Radio and Liam Hooper, of Ministries Beyond Welcome, use their expertise and insight to transform the way we think about the Bible and what it means in our lives. As a gay man and a trans man, they see things that many others have been blind to. As they co-host today, they consider two Bible verses and two non-Bible inspirational passages, to think deeply about inclusion, belonging, immigrants, the Earth, and connection.  [ More... ]

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:
Jewish
 
In his new book, Race and Social Change: A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action, Max Klau uses wide-ranging social science investigation to search for a way forward on dealing with racism and privilege in the USA. The starting point is Camp Anytown's Separation Exercise, which has led to the awakening of many minds. Max's exploration of that tool, supplemented by his years of service as VP of Leadership Development at City Year and currently as CPO with the New Politics Leadership Academy, have given him powerful insights into the dynamics of human growth and change.  [ More... ]
