May 19, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Fish from the Bay

Shopping this time of year for fresh Maryland produce is a pleasure.  Spring brings us broccoli, cabbage, asparagus and tons of herbs and greens. A lot of us are thinking light, and finding a suitable protein for the plate couldn't be easier.  So while we are composing brilliant variations on the theme of spring vegetables, we can dip into the Bay for suitable partners.

Credit The Dagger Newspaper

When Baltimore was shaken by protests three weeks ago, some of them violent, State Senator Catherine Pugh, a Democrat, could be found night and day on the streets of Sandtown-Winchester and other neighborhoods in her West Baltimore district.   Senator J.B. Jennings, a Republican who represents parts Harford and Baltimore Counties, lives in Joppa, but he was also on the streets of Baltimore after the April 27 riots. He was called to service as a member of the Air National Guard.

Senator Pugh is majority leader of the state senate, and will co-chair the work group appointed by the legislature’s presiding officers after the riots, to look at police and public safety issues. Senator Jennings is minority leader of the senate, and will serve on that task force.

Living Questions is our monthly series examining the role of religion in the public sphere.  Today two very thoughtful church leaders join us whose work in Baltimore and beyond extends to members of many different faith communities.  In the wake of the riots in Baltimore, we want to ask them about the long-term work of healing Baltimore's soul and building social capital in the city. Bishop Douglas Miles is the Pastor of Koinonia Baptist Church in Baltimore and the Co-Chair Emeritus of BUILD, Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development.  Dr. Brad Braxton is the Founding Senior Pastor of the Open Church in Baltimore.  He also served for several years as the Program Officer for Religion in the Public Sphere at the Ford Foundation in New York.
