Davisville, 5/4/15: Crossing lines to pursue the common good in Davis

Bill Habicht is the associate pastor of Davis Community Church. He has also worked on a series of projects that cross lines between social activism and business innovation, such as Mosaic Tea & Coffee and Pollinate Davis, and more could be coming--such as a pop-up store where someone could test a business idea for two months. "If they show success," he says, "they move into their own space." Today's subjects include helping the homeless get shelter, the challenges of "working as a Christian in a fairly secular town," and breaking out of silos.

dj tree kilpatrick

Your host, Tree, loves music.  And his theory of music involves a tree of sorts. Suffice to say it involves a trinity, exploration of themes and connections amongst recording artists, and otherwise very few boundaries.  Listen in as Tree plays music old and new, known and unknown.  Eventually if you listen long enough you might experience some musical enlightments. In the meantime, let him show you the way to the music from the tree of life.
