If you saw my most recent video, you already know that my good friend Samir Selmanović, the Executive Director of Common Good Christians, invited me to speak this week at San Juans Summit, a gathering of progressive Christians who want to reclaim their faith from the grip of the hypocritical right (if you haven’t watched my video with Samir, please take a few minutes to listen to his story). While there, I met a lot of wonderful people who are doing really amazing work. One of those people is the Writer, Pastor, and Activist John Pavlovitz. John is the author of the best-seller “A Bigger Table” as well as the upcoming “Hope and Other Superpowers: A Life-Affirming, Love-Defending, Butt-Kicking, World-Saving Manifesto.” John’s message is simple but powerful, and I was glad to spend time with him and hear his vision for a way forward.
