On this episode of the podcast I talk with Stephanie Summers, the CEO of the Center for Public Justice about Christian political engagement as love of neighbor, and engagement that goes beyond presidential politics.
Among the topics we discuss:
- -Stephanie’s story of deepening her youthful activism with theological roots
- -What is “public” justice, and what does the Center for Public Justice (CPJ) do?
- -How does CPJ approach a problem like poverty?
- -How do we move forward in a deeply polarized time?
- -What does it mean for ordinary people to be politically engaged beyond just voting every few years?
- -How do you find hope amid the political cynicism of our time?
