Radio Alternatives

Thanks for the overview of progressive voices on the radio ("Hot Air," by David Hoffman, June 2005). The question was raised about whether a syndicated radio show featuring discussions of faith, politics, and culture from a progressive perspective could succeed. Our program, Day 1 (formerly The Protestant Hour), celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. Day 1 airs every week on some 160 radio stations proclaiming the moderate/progressive Christian faith through interviews and messages by some of the best mainline Protestant preachers of our day. We’re one of the very few alternatives to the evangelical and Religious Right programs that dominate the airwaves,

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
