MikeyPod 122 | Filmmaker Jamie Moffett

Jamie Moffett joins me today to discuss his film The Ordinary Radicals.

About the film:

In the margins of the United States, there lives a revolutionary Christianity. One with a quiet disposition that seeks to do “small things with great love, and in so doing is breaking 21st Century stereotypes surrounding this 2000 year old faith. The Ordinary Radicals is set against the modern American political and social backdrop of the next Great Awakening. Traveling across the United States on a tour to promote the book Jesus for President, Shane Claiborne and a rag-tag group of “ordinary radicals” interpret Biblical history and its correlation with the current state of American politics. Sharing a relevant outlook for people with all faith perspectives, director Jamie Moffett examines this growing movement.

This afternoon, I interviewed filmmaker Jamie Moffett about his upcoming film The Ordinary Radicals. The topic of Christianity and Homosexuality came up, which prompted him to send me this clip from the film. It is part of an interview with with author/ speaker/ general bad-ass Shane Claiborne.

Look for my interview with Jamie on Monday.
