I’m interviewing Sister Helen Prejean today over at Naropa University with Mito Media, for elephantjournal.com, Huffington Post, and Mallika Chopra’s Intent.com, where I’m starting a new column in the short-term. Sister Helen, a Catholic nun, is best-selling author of Dead Man Walking, on which the Oscar-winning movie was based (Susan Sarandon played Sister Helen). We’ll talk about forgiveness (a notion I still don’t get) and the death penalty…about true Christianity and the importance of mercy.
A new season of elephant journal’s Walk the Talk Show: Last year, our talk show season lasted 9 months. This year, it’ll be five months—four videos a month, on average, from May through September, with some random videos in the winter of 09/10. This will be the first since my new video for elephantjournal.com with Dr. Andrew Weil in Denver.
“It’s all about waking up,” Sister Helen says. Amen to that:
