Good Faith Media will host the final Good Faith Forum on faith and politics on Oct. 22.

The first two forums, produced in conjunction with Interfaith Alliance, took place on Oct. 8 and 15. A recording of forum one is available here, and forum two is available here.

At 1 p.m. EDT / noon CDT on Thursday, Oct. 22, panelists William Blake, Sharon Brous and Wendell Griffen will discuss the question, “What are the real issues in the upcoming election?”

Blake is assistant professor in the department of political science at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He earned a master of arts and a doctorate in government from the University of Texas at Austin and did his undergraduate work at the College of William and Mary.

Brous is the senior and founding rabbi of IKAR, which was started in 2004 and has become a model for Jewish revitalization in the U.S. and beyond. She is a leading voice in reanimating religious life in America, working to develop a spiritual roadmap for soulful, multifaith justice work in Los Angeles and around the country.

Griffen is pastor at New Millennium Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, and a circuit court judge in Arkansas. He has a juris doctorate from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

You can sign up for reminder emails related to the forum and can submit questions to the panelists in advance of the forum here; inquiries also can be submitted during the live event via Facebook chat.

GFM staff will curate questions submitted in advance and during the event. The moderator will present selected questions to the panelists.

In July, three Good Faith Forums focused on racial justice, engaging panelists from across the U.S. in discussing systemic racism, white privilege, white supremacy, Christian nationalism and policing.

In August, forums focused on public education, with panelists discussing restarting school during a pandemic, public education as a foundation of democracy and privatization efforts.

Recordings of these forums are available for viewing via the GFM Facebook page and Vimeo channel.
