Mere Fidelity: On Community Activism and Matt's Prison BBQ project

December 5th, 2017 | 2 min read

By Matthew Lee Anderson


Matt recently announced that he is organizing a BBQ for families of inmates at his local prison. The cast and crew very graciously allow him to take over the conversation this week to talk about the events origins, its rationale, and how Matt is thinking about activism in its relationship to the church in light of it.

For more details about the event and to contribute to the cause, please visit here. Donations of any size are very welcome--as is help spreading the word about what would be a unique opportunity. Anyone interested in knowing more about it or planning an equivalent event should email Matt at matthewleeanderson dot 84 at gmail dot com.

If you like the show, please do leave us a review on iTunes. We are also available on Google Play.
