One of our blog posts at Hacking Christianity has made it into journalistic semi-big-time: published in a respectable religion magazine. Our blog post on TOMs shoes and evaluating charitable giving “Glam/Missional” has been adapted and made into an article in the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of The Progressive Christian (link).
The Progressive Christian is formerly Zion’s Herald, a progressive publication dating back to 1868, and has a history of writing about moral and social topics. Like most magazines these days, their reach and staff have shrunk in recent years but I’m glad they are still around and kicking. I’m honored that our article reflecting on the effects and intents behind giving to a charity fit into their mission and they saw it fit to print as well!
NOTE: I just noticed that the article lost the quote marks on two LONG quotes by Julie Clawson and Zac Mason on the left column of page 14…the quote marks were lost in the conversion so it looks like I plagiarized their quotes as my own words. As you see on the original post, that is not the case. Just FYI.
