Activism. We live in a time when activism is at the forefront of what we see, hear, and experienced almost every day through media. For many, we wonder if such activity is effective, does it serve a purpose, how should we as Christians involve ourselves, what is the appropriate action? Joining us this week is Joel Gordon from the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada who will help us consider a definition for activism, and how activism ought to be a part of the Christian experience. How should action flow out of Christian belief?
