Coffee with Sarah Withrow King


SarahWithrowKing4We interrupt with this breaking news, today’s guest, Sarah Withrow King’s latest book, Vegangelical is being published today.  Vegangelical: How Caring for Animals Can Shape Your Faith is her second book, after Animals Are Not Ours (No Really, They’re Not): An Evangelical Animal Liberation Theology. Sarah is the Deputy Director of Evangelicals for Social Action. She lives in Philadelphia, PA and came to ESA from PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.RSS Pointer

I’m very much looking forward to meeting my new friend in person next month at the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, North Carolina. Rest assured, everyone will be able to choose the bathroom of their choice. (In the months leading up to the Wild Goose Festival, for those who don’t know, North Carolina has been trying to restricting the rights of transgender people, including which bathrooms people can use.) So, listeners, come to the festival. Bring your lounge chair and your bathing suit. It is always a thoughtful, joy filled time. Sarah will be a presenter during the Racial Justice Institute pre-festival event too!

SarhaWithrowKing2Sarah is also an Associate Fellow at the Oxford Center for Animal Ethics, evangelical, a blogger, struggler, and a mom! “Evangelical” has different emphases for different people. So we asked Sarah to let us know what she means when she owns being evangelical.
