Welcome to the Faithfully Subversive blog!

Our radio show, Faithfully Subversive, began in January of 2006. One year later, we started blogging and podcasting. For those of you who are just now joining us, Faithfully Subversive is a progressive Christian radio show on WDBX Community Radio for Southern Illinois. You can listen to the show each Thursday from 9-9:30 a.m. Central Time at 91.1 FM (in Southern Illinois) or online at http://www.wdbx.org/. We know that some people are at work or in bed on Thursday mornings, so we try to make podcast recordings of our show available here on this website.

Faithfully Subversive is our response to "Christian" radio. We speak of faith from a progressive Christian perspective. The show includes religious news and commentary as well as music from artists that reflect our values, even if they aren't on formal "Christian" labels. Some of the most insightful music we bring to the show comes from independent artists, and we are always looking and listening for new music.

Who are the Faithfully Subversive hosts? Check out the profile pages on the right menu bar. There, you will find information about Virginia, Marleen, Stacia, Dwight, and Sarah. The best way to get to know us, however, is to listen to the show. Join us on Thursdays at 9 a.m. or check back here each Friday for the podcast of Thursday's show.

"God is still speaking."
