At the Edge of the Lege: Where Abortion, Faith & Politics Collide

.

Join your hosts Sonja Miller, Rev. Erika Forbes, and Rev. Angela Williams as we create and hold space for courageous conversations about abortion, faith, and politics. The dominant narrative about religion doesn’t reflect who we are, what we believe, and how we live. When we’re not speaking out during the Texas legislative session (or lege for short), we’re digging deep to share stories that can change the world. Stories drive culture. Culture drives politics. Faith affects all of it. Will you join us At the Edge of the Lege?
