There's an old Lenny Bruce one-liner that goes like this: "Everyday, people are straying away from the church and going back to God." In this day and age, there must be some truth to that idea; while it's true that more and more people in this country are giving up on the religion they grew up with or else rejecting organized religion entirely, it's also true that many who have turned away from religious institutions --- as well as many others who've lived wholly without religion --- really do hunger for something more than what con Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:53:57 +0000 Rich Fisher 62073 at http://publicradiotulsa.org "A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World" (Encore presentation.)

Hill Lecture Here at TU Dr. David Miller of Princeton University on the "Faith at Work Movement" http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/dr-david-miller-princeton-university-faith-work-movement <p>Once upon a time, talking about one's religion while at the office was strictly taboo. It was basically considered bad form, and it was against the rules in many American workplaces. Today, that's often <em>not</em> the case. When did this change occur? And why? Our guest is Dr. David Miller, who serves as Director of the Princeton University Faith and Work Initiative. As such, he both researches and lectures on business ethics as well as the intersection of faith and work (in the US and around the globe).

Kivel is also a social-justice activist and educator whose new book, just out, is "Living in the Shadow of the Cross: Understanding and Resisting the Power and Privilege of Christian Hegemony." It is, to be sure, a work that makes several debatable points, and that takes as "given" several contentious assertions --- and so Kivel defends (and elaborates on) many of these points and assertions on this edition of ST.
