ACTIVISM AND YOU: FIRED UP OR BURNT OUT?

Program: 
More Talk Radio
Air date: 
Mon, 03/16/2015 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A discussion on activism and what inspires or defeats us

Join Celeste and Cecil for a discussion about  activism and finding balance in our lives. 

The Trappist monk and social critic Thomas Merton o observed  “There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”

Ersatz Chats: The sight bits & sound “bites” of social networking

We spend so much time imitating communication; social networking sites do promote contact...sometimes as the end itself. But do they really promote connection, community, communion with another person? Is social networking a conversation without context? Was that great 20th century philosopher James Brown (a.k.a. The Godfather) presciently, prophetically on point...that we are a culture "talking loud and saying nothing"? Join Cecil Prescod and myself, Celeste Carey as we muse over the demise of face-to-face social interaction and blame social networking sites .

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
