What does it feel like when three reverends from three different cities take the stage to end a rousing day of ideas? Like a warm embrace to take out into the world to make change.
At The Citizen’s inaugural Ideas We Should Steal Festival, the day ended with an inspiring conversation about race, love, justice and hope with Professor and Rev. Michael Eric Dyson, Rev. Chuck Mingo of Cincinnati, and Philly’s Rev. Bill Golderer, CEO of United Way of Southeastern PA and NJ.
“Justice,” Dyson told the riveted late afternoon crowd, “is what love sounds like when it speaks in public.”

Reverend Chuck Mingo offered an Idea We Should Steal: UNDIVIDED, a six-week spiritual journey from Cincinnati’s Crossroads Church, brings people together from different races for conversations and experiences that are healing the racial divide in the city. Bring it here.
