Adam R. Taylor – Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism and Following Jesus Christ
Adam R. Taylor and Graham Joseph Hill discuss the theme, “Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism and Following Jesus Christ.” The Global Church Project podcast episode #146.
Adam R. Taylor and Graham Joseph Hill discuss the theme, “Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism and Following Jesus Christ.” Taylor says, “Martin Luther King Jr. read the words of the apostle Paul to the church in Rome – “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” – as a call not to retreat from the world but to lead the world into the kingdom of God, where peace and justice reign. In King’s day the presenting problem was entrenched racism; the movement of God was a revolution in civil rights and human dignity . . . Learn what today’s transformed nonconformists are doing at home and abroad to keep in step with the God of justice and love, and find ways you can join the new nonconformists in an activism of hope.”
Rev. Adam Russell Taylor is the executive director of Sojourners and author of Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism for a Post Civil Rights Generation.

He has also served as the executive director of Global Justice, an organization that educates and mobilizes students around global human rights and economic justice.
