Part 1

We begin on this Thanksgiving holiday as we celebrate family and community and look into what we have to be thankful for and what we can do to makes others thankful. We begin with the Reverend Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping and explore alternatives to the coming frenzy of shopping that begins tomorrow with Black Friday and intensifies in the month ahead until Christmas. rev billy

Part 2

Then we speak with Sister Ann Kendrick, one of the nuns on the bus, who works in Central Florida bringing services and support to farm workers and their families. We discuss the challenges facing immigrant communities, many of whom toil to put food on our table, and the changing face of America that is fast-becoming a majority-minority country.

Part 3

Then finally Jim Wallis joins us. He recently served on the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and is president and CEO of Sojourners and editor-in-chief of Sojourners Magazine. We will discuss the many reasons to be thankful that our democracy survived an attempt by the oligarchy to buy the recent election, and how citizens can build a movement to take money out of politics and make government responsive to the needs of people not the power of money.
