Normally religion doesn’t get much attention here on citizenreporter. Probably because I’m not a religious person. Nevertheless my recommendation for you today is related to faith and preachers and yes.. evangelicals.. a group I really never pay attention to.
This evening I found myself on a train, coming home from Brussels, mind wandering… and sure enough I turn on This American Life. This episode focuses on a preacher, an evangelical preacher who went from being a superstar to being a pariah among his own people. But its not the rise and fall that caught my attention. It is the man’s voice, in the interviews and in church… his voice keeps me captivated.. its magic. It doesn’t make me suddenly religious.. but it does make me think about life and friends and love and how things change. Plus its a story that just hangs there in my mind. Therefore I recommend giving it a listen.
