shanespeaking@redletterchristians.org; @shaneclaiborne
Claiborne is a founder and board member of The Simple Way, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world. He graduated from Eastern University and did graduate work at Princeton Seminary. In 2010, he received an Honorary Doctorate from Eastern. He writes and travels extensively speaking about peacemaking, social justice, and Jesus. His adventures have taken him from the streets of Calcutta where he worked with Mother Teresa to the wealthy suburbs of Chicago where he served at the influential mega-church Willow Creek. In addition, he’s visited some of the most troubled regions of the world as a peacemaker – from Rwanda to the West Bank – and he’s been on peace delegations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
