Last April, I was contacted by Gabe Lyons, co-author of the book, unChristian to address the subject of the multi-ethnic church on a podcast for the Fermi Project. According to their website, "Gabe and Rebekah Lyons founded Fermi Project in 2003, a broad collective of innovators, social entrepreneurs, church and societal leaders working together to make positive contributions to culture." As you may know, the book "reveals exclusive research on pop-culture's negative perception of Christians and convenes 27 of Christianity's most influential voices to address ... the steady erosion of Christianity's reputation in America." Prior to Fermi Project, Gabe co-founded Catalyst, a national gathering of young leaders, while serving as Vice President for John Maxwell's INJOY organization.
In addition and by clicking the link above, you can access 23 other podcasts produced by the Fermi Project featuring Shane Claiborne, Brian McClaren, Mark Batterson, Rick McKinley, Jim Wallis and more.
Here's a bit more about the Fermi Project from their website ...
"A Fermi is a metric unit of length equal to one quadrillionth of a meter (10-15 meter). It is named after Enrico Fermi who was an Italian-born American physicist. He won a 1938 Nobel Prize for his work on artificial radioactivity caused by neutron bombardment. In 1942, at the University of Chicago, he produced the first controlled nuclear chain reaction.
In contrast to things that are big, Fermi represents the beginning of a chain reaction. It starts small, but through intentional linking over time creates an exponential effect, a major shift within the church's way of viewing its mission and opportunity within the culture."
