Friends Talking Faith

January 23, 2018 – Faith & Community: Community Transformation

with Ms. Lynette Fields

Season 11, Episode 4

When we talk about “community transformation” — which we’re going to do a lot over the next several weeks — what do we mean? On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll talk about faith, community transformation, and the changes occurring in the way we think about the poor and the disenfranchised. Did you know that there have been important shifts in the way we talk about those who face poverty in our communities? There is a move occurring from a “client” based mentality to a “citizen” based way of thinking. We’re also looking at “place” rather than “issue” when we consider at risk communities. Is this more than just semantics? Our guest today will help us understand these changes and what they mean in terms of how communities are looking at and dealing with poverty-related issues. Our conversation with Ms. Lynette Fields around emerging concepts in “community transformation” – that’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
