hopelessness.

Editor’s Desk: Hard Grace: What Jack In the Beanstalk Taught Me

  Most of us can recall the tale of Jack in the Beanstalk and can remember how we thrilled at the rhythmic chant of the giant ogre, “Fee-fi-fo-fum! I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.” As an adult and the mother of an adult son, this tale became quite significant to me. Robert was about 20 years old when Michael, my husband, and I bought some property in Mendocino County in Northern California. We became landowners with three other couples and were experimenting with living

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Rev. Jennifer Butler

The future is dark. But what if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb but the darkness of the womb? What if our America is not dead but is a country that is waiting to be born? What if the story of America is one long labor? What if all our grandfathers and grandmothers are standing behind us now, those who survived occupation and genocide, slavery and Jim Crow, detentions and political assault? What if they are whispering in our ear ‘You are brave’? What if this is our nation’s greatest transition? Valarie Kaur, is a Sikh civil

Reclaiming Scripture to Heal a Broken World with Rev. Jennifer Butler

Whether you are a Christian, a Jew, belong to any other denomination, or have no religious affiliation, you may be surprised to know that the Bible represents generations of faith communities who resisted tyranny in impossible circumstances when the future looked bleak. Rev. Butler offers a look at Scripture with new eyes to help us see and discern what the biblical stories have to say about the overall arc of Scripture as a call to resist tyranny.

Walking the Virtual Corridors with Thought Leaders

  I think New Dimensions is important because you are providing a very large forum for ideas but not beholden to any specific individual or band of corporate interests other than your listeners themselves. That of course is the greatest obligation — as well as the most useful and powerful — to be of the people, by the people and for the people. I have a tremendous respect for you and your programming in this regard, because you are not afraid to deal with the issues, questions, and answers that so many powerful and entrenched vested interest groups would prefer
