Manage episode 282137442 series 2359403
We start a new series today on Power, Race, and Gender in the Church. If you’ve kept track of the news for the past few weeks, you’ll know that we Christians have some big problems in these areas, and this series is a way for us to explore together how to repent and respond in ways that bring healing and justice.
The first episode in the series is with Rev. Dr. Esau McCaulley, a professor, priest, and author living in Wheaton, Illinois. We discuss his book Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. Esau has a lot to teach us about why it’s important to own and name the social location from which we read Scripture.
(Note: we just hit record on the podcast while Esau was talking about being misunderstood in white spaces.)
You can connect with Esau on Twitter.
