Making Peace and Following Jesus: an interview with Jer Swigart (podcast)
With a society that is becoming more and more divided, with a contentious political race ahead, and with global conflict on the rise, the world is in need for a church that carries out its role as a maker of justice and peace. Are the American Churches, Protestant, Catholic, Evangelical, and Mainline, ready to do the hard work that lies ahead?
Today we will speak with Jer Swigart, one of the founders of the Global Immersion Project, on conflict, peacemaking, the movement of Christians who are learning that Christ had little interest in American standards of successful living, and the thrill and adventure of taking up one’s cross and following Jesus. Get ready: whichever side of the spectrum you find yourself, on this podcast, you’re in for a bumpy ride!
