Tune into “Crossroads”

Set your radio dial early this Sunday, May 5 when Rev. Patrick J. Lynch, SJ, hosts the latest edition of “Crossroads.”

The focus of this month’s conversation is “Nickel City Forum and the Church of Atonement” with featured guest Rev. Bryan Wandel. Wandel founded the Church of Atonement, an Anglican church, in 2017 and followed it up with the formation of Nickel City Forum. The monthly event enables participants to learn about and discuss “macro ideas:” theology, ethics and culture, in the comfortable setting of a local microbrewery.

“Crossroads” is a monthly radio program produced by the Network of Religious Communities and hosted by Father Lynch, professor of religious studies and theology. It airs on the first Sunday of each month at 6:00 a.m. on MIX-96 (96.1 FM) and at 6:30 a.m. on JACK-FM (92.9).

If you miss Sunday’s broadcast, you can hear it on the Canisius SoundCloud starting Monday, May 6.
