May 12, 2015 – Faith & Society: Rebuilding Community
Season 7, Episode 19
In the past four years the difficulty and controversy of one Central Florida community has been the focus of national media attention. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and rebuilding community. In 2011 “60 Minutes” honed in on this community as it reported on rising homelessness resulting from “The Great Recession.” Then, less than a year later this same community found itself in the national media crosshairs again regarding the killing of an unarmed teenager whose name, Trayvon Martin, has become a household word. On this show we talk with the Mayor of Sanford, Florida about what kinds of things they’re doing to rebuild community and move forward. We’ll look at the question, “where does faith come in when a community is in crisis?” Mayor Jeff Triplett (pictured right) and the city of Sanford, REBUILDING. Listen to that conversation on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
