Tuesday Conversations S2E3 [PODCAST]: Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and I Talk Faith, Politics--and, yes, Love.
In today's climate, is talking about love hopelessly naive?
Dear #WhiteTooLong readers,
I hope this finds you refreshed from a long weekend of rest and service. For those of you who are clergy or do activism as a vocation, I hope you found some rest.

As the new year gets underway, I’d like to ask a favor. If you’ve enjoyed reading my #WhiteTooLong newsletter, would you consider taking one of two actions?

Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and I Talk Faith, Politics--and, yes, Love.
In today's bareknuckle political climate, is talking about love hopelessly naive?
That’s just one of the questions anchoring this refreshing conversation with Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, the senior pastor at Middle Collegiate Church in New York and the author of the important recent book, Fierce Love: A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World. Jacqui and I have been friends for a decade, and she knows how to push people (including me!) out of their comfort zones to think in creative ways about how love and courage still have the power to heal.
