I have a conversation with Rev. Dr. James Howell, the senior pastor of Myers Park UMC. Since this summer he has been writing an email devotional about God and Politics entitled "'Tis the Season." In these devotions, he dives into what it means to be in the midst of this political election and to be a Christian. In our conversation, we talk about the careful line we have to walk between religion and politics. Do Christians have something to say? Or should we be silent?
In this third episode of my podcast, I have a conversation with Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, the senior pastor of Riverside Church in New York City. Amy has a unique story that leads her all around the world. She grew up in Hawaii, went to college in Texas and got her bachelors from Baylor University. Then she went to Europe and attended The International Baptist Theological Seminary. She got a Doctor of Ministry degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Before taking the senior pastor role at Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, Amy was an associate pastor and did mission work in New Orleans.
