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.

In this episode, Leroy Barber asks, “If God had to come close in the incarnation… what makes us think we can do [Christianity] from afar?” Leroy authored the book Embrace: God’s Radical Shalom for a Divided World and serves as the Executive Director for The Voices Project. Drawing from experience in community development, Leroy explains the way God takes our ordinary and accomplishes the extraordinary. He believes this is most evident when we walk in relationship with others and is best cultivated by establishing rhythms of service in our personal lives.
