The latest from our podcast Resist and Restore!
In this Episode:
Jonny interviews our friend Bethany Stewart, the leader of our Circle Mobilizing Because Black Lives Matter Compassion Team, and one of the co-hosts of the Color Correction podcast. She shares about the team’s efforts to raise money for the black covenant members of our church in a campaign called Jubilee Wealth Redistribution, her apprehension/doubt going into it, and the awesome success of it. She also touches on generational wealth gaps, reparations, among a host of other topics! Moreover, how all of this is connected to her faith. Tons of thoughts and wisdom here from a great friend and leader in Circle of Hope. Also, as always, a little talkback on how we worship even when we don’t feel it, and some Spiritual Show and Tell: “Jesus and the Forces of Death,” “H is for Hawk,” hiking and retreats, and the community relying on each other.
Interview with Bethany Stewart:
Spiritual Show and Tell:
“People do not live very long or look very hard. We are very bad at scale. Things that live in the soil are too small to care about; climate change too large to imagine. We are bad at time, too. We cannot remember what lived here before we did; we cannot love what is not. Nor can we imagine what will be different when we are dead. We live out our three score and ten, and tie our knots and lines only to ourselves. We take solace in pictures, and we wipe the hills of history.” -Helen Macdonald in “H is for Hawk”
