This morning, President Obama issued a long-awaited executive order ending discrimination against LGBT people in hiring by federal contractors — without the so-called religious exemption loophole that some conservative religious leaders had called for.

Right now, our response as people of faith to the humanitarian crisis of migrant children at our border will not only decide what policies our leaders pursue, but also what values the soul of our country will reflect.

Lucky for all of us, Auburn Seminary and the Center for Progressive Renewal will be in the same place at the same time this summer – the National Church Leadership Institute​, August 7th-10th in Atlanta.

News broke yesterday that a small Portland, OR based workers’ rights organization called VOZ is standing up to intolerant elements in the Church after they were told to cut ties with an LGBT friendly ally group, or lose a critical $75,000 grant.

Yesterday afternoon, I hand-delivered our petition on migrant children directly to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson!

Religion is complicated on a good day. With Hobby Lobby and fighting in the Middle East, things are even more complicated. To help recharge your faith, we’ve plated a four-course meal of spiritual nutrition. Enjoy!

Inspiring faithful action to heal and repair the world
