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

Iranian Beauty Queen, Teacher, & Dentist Seeks Freedom  
Bahareh Zare Bahari is distinct in so many ways - as an Iranian woman who, in her early 20's, started her own school, soon shut down by the regime in Iran, who then moved to the Philippines to become a Doctor of Dentistry, and who won 3 beauty queen crowns, using the opportunity to both hold up the beauty & power of the Iranian women and people. Because of her witness, she has been threatened, nearly abducted, and had her nose broken. She is stranded precariously in the Philippines, trapped, with minimal help and protection from vengeful Iranian forces, with people all around her reluctant to step into the path of that wrath. If you wish to help, you can reach out to Bahar on Instagram or via Facebook, but better yet through an email to Ran Meir at RanMeir@gmail.com, who will channel aid to Bahar.  [ More... ]    [ Excerpts ]
