Sister Simone Campbell, A Nun on the Bus, August 28 – September 3

Religion, social justice, and public life is the tagline for Religion For Life.  The nuns on the bus are at the center of that intersection driving for faith, family and fairness.  Sister Simone Campbell of Network, a National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, talks to me about her bus tours to speak on behalf of the 100%.   Her book, A Nun on the Bus:  How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community is an uplifting and serious call to get off the couch, rediscover our values and reclaim our democracy.

Two Friars and a Fool, Never Pray Again, August 14-20

Here is advice you don’t often hear from clergy:  never pray again!  If you have ever wondered about the point (or pointlessness) of prayer, you’ll find these friars to be fellow travelers.  My guests, Aric Clark, Doug Hagler, and Nick Larson are Two Friars and A Fool (Twitter, Facebook) and have authored a book, Never Pray Again!  Lift Your Head, Unfold Your Hands, and Get to Work!   They encourage us to turn prayer into action and they speak candidly about their own struggles with the concept of prayer.
