Russ Jennnings is creating a new podcast: Love in a dangerous time

There are a lot of progressive Christian podcasts out there these days. I listen to them all the time. But one area that doesn't seem to be covered is "Christian Community." How do we form our communities? More importantly, WHY do we band together as a worshiping community? What God's purpose? What are our goals? So Love In A Dangerous Time (.net) is born to explore this, very broad, area. We'll be talking with church planters, intentional communities, people doing great justice work and we'll also look at the theory behind the work (ecclesiology). Not all of the guests will be Christian. We'll have Hindus, talking about nonviolence, pastors who are working on a new plan for church development, some really annoying Christians who think we should actually follow Jesus, and Radical Theologians asking us what's it all for?

As you may imagine, there are costs involved with doing a podcast. There are startup costs, registering your domain and building a website. The ongoing fees for hosting and media storage are the next thing. (Hopefully this cost will go up, as the audience grows.) And then there are the costs of actually creating the cast. Mics, mixers, software, and time. 

Your monthly contribution of anything from 5o¢ to $20 (or more) will help with the ongoing costs and the little surprises that come up all the time. I hope you find our conversations interesting, and I hope you'll join the community.

The Almighty Dollar!!! For this bit of generosity you'll get your name (or the name of your organization or website of choice) on the "Supporters" list on LoveInADangerousTime.net  AND I'll sing your praises in the cast. Instant stardom.

Now it's getting real. As a Buck Fifty supporter, (in addition to the previous reward) you will  be invited to make an audio recording of your voice tellinig everyone that you help support this wonderful cast. Cool, aye?

You're obviously an opinion leader, so for two bucks you get (in addition to the previous rewards) to make a recording (on the SpeakPipe widget on my site) where you can plug yourself and your project (Church-Plant, feeding the hungry project, stopping police killings of minority people, another podcast!!!).
Pledge $3.50 or more per month

What can one do to honor such generosity? If you pledge $3.50 per month, you should get something very nifty. How 'bout a clickable banner ad on the Love In A Dangerous Time website (this is, of course, in addition to the previous rewards). You'll be helping generate a bigger and bigger audience, so your perk will grow in value.

OK, you're one of those "Golden Circle" donors, like you see in the program when you go to the theatre. You're using your resources to really have an impact on the culture. You should be singled out for great praise. For this very generous gift, you'll get the listing, the praise and the banner ad (see above) plus a recently published book from my collection. I get books in the mail all the time. Many are fantastic. I'll send you an unread copy (unless the book is just too important to be so fussy).
Goals
$0 of $10 per month
$200 a month will cover the hard costs of Love In A Dangerous Time, and provide me with a small income. That's a good thing.
