Servecast Dr. William Lamb invites students, educators, and community advocates to Studio 22 to explore ways individuals and communities can be agents of change for good.

Faithful Christian mission includes more than preaching. In his book Where the Cross Meets the Street, Noel Castellanos describes his dissatisfaction with the proclamation-only approach and looks at the life of Jesus for a more holistic way to engage our neighborhoods. He believes in the cross God enters our suffering and cares for the vulnerable, and the Christian's duty is to do the same. This entails moving into the neighborhood, engaging both proclamation and formation, demonstrating compassion, seeking restoration and development, and confronting injustice where it may be found. In this episode, Noel joins William to discuss how the radical story of the cross should shape the Church's presence in our communities.

Noel serves as the President of the Christian Community Development Association.

Christians accept a false dichotomy when they believe they must choose between truth and love. This causes compromise in their approach to politics.  Justin Giboney, politician and co-founder of the AND Campaign, joins William to discuss faithful Christian engagment. Christians must have a public presence, and this presence should be marked by the compassion and conviction of Jesus Christ.
