This is a discussion on the issues of racism we still deal with in our nation. My guests are Marlena Graves, author and activist, and Dennis Edwards, Professor of New Testament at North Park Seminary.
Marlena Graves is author of the forthcoming book, The Way Down is Up: Becoming Yourself by Forgetting Yourself.
Dennis Edwards is the author of the forthcoming book, Might from the Margins: The Gospel's Power to Turn the Tables on Injustice.
I had the privilege of interviewing Jay Kim, author of Analog Church: Why we need real people, places, and things in the digital age. I wanted to ask about the necessitated move to digital the American Church has had to go through in the time of isolation with coronavirus.
In this final episode of the season I want to explore racism in the American Church. I will be adding notes in my blog where I post this particular episode to link to Apprentice2Jesus.com. This is the longest episode and I apologize for that in advance. I am also still learning podcasting so there is a lot of segments. I apologize in advance for that as well.
I am exploring two major issues within the American conservative Church context. Women in ministry and racism. This episode features three influential women who have personally impacted my life and ministry.
In this episode I want to explore the Azusa Street Revival. This is a time where a particular group of people did not have the cultural pressures present that we see in the culture around them at that time or in our day. Why was that event so different?
I am working to get back into podcasting! This is my first attempt and my first series is going to be on two major issues in the American Church. Those issues that stir my heart the most right now are racism and women in leadership. I hope you listen in.
