Dec 30, 2019

Adam R. Taylor and Graham Joseph Hill discuss the theme, “Mobilizing Hope: Faith-Inspired Activism and Following Jesus Christ.” The Global Church Project 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. Taylor previously led the Faith Initiative at the World Bank Group and served as the Vice President of Advocacy at World Vision U.S. and the Senior Political Director at Sojourners. 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. Taylor is a graduate of Emory University, the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, and the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology. Taylor is ordained in the American Baptist Church and serves at the Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Va.
