Shane Claiborne unveils the tragic messes we’ve made of our world and the tangible hope that another world is possible. His ministry experience is varied, from a 10-week stint working alongside Mother Teresa in Calcutta, to a year spent serving a wealthy mega-congregation at Willow Creek Community Church outside
Chicago. During the recent war in Iraq, Shane spent three weeks in Baghdad with the Iraq Peace Team. Shane is also a founding partner of The Simple Way, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped to birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.
Lorna Dueck is the host and executive producer of Context with Lorna Dueck, and president of Media Voice Generation, the Canadian charitable organization that produces the weekly current affairs show.
An award-winning journalist and television personality, Lorna also contributes regularly to Canada’s leading national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, and to CBC.ca.
Lorna’s call to missions came when, in 1998, she searched the media and found no Christian voice that reflected the truth of the Gospel in the telling of current affairs. She started Listen Up TV, to be that voice, exploring news and current affairs from a Christian perspective. Last year, the show took a leap forward with its evangelical mission, moving into the heart of secular media production in Toronto, to an office downtown in the CBC building. Listen Up TV changed to Context with Lorna Dueck, to reflect its focus on how the teachings of Jesus fit into the context of our lives today.
Airing on Global and Vision TV on Sunday mornings across Canada, at 11am and 9:30am local time respectively, Context reaches out to the non-Christian in search of an
explanation for the events in their world. Context answers by presenting the nature of God, the reality of sin, and the hope brought by Jesus in the telling of news stories.
