    Dr. Reggie Williams - Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus & BLM

    Dr. Reggie Williams - Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus & BLM

    As you can hear from Drew and Jarrod’s excitement, they loved this episode. Dr. Reggie Williams is a legend. His book “Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus: Harlem Renaissance Theology and an Ethic of Resistance” is an award winning work reconsidering the shape of Dietrich Bonhoeffer resistance to the Nazi’s through the influence of his experience of the Black Church tradition in America. In short Dr. Reggie Williams makes clear Eric Metaxis full of skubala and you can’t understand Bonhoeffer without situating his witness as a wrestle with the Powers of white supremacy.

    Dr Randy Woodley: An Indigenous Vision of Creator Christ

    Dr Randy Woodley: An Indigenous Vision of Creator Christ

    Theologian Dr Randy Woodley is a Keetoowah Cherokee First Nations elder, University professor, author and leader. He generously invites us to decolonise our Christology by seeing Christ as Creator, decolonise our understanding of the ‘kingdom’ by seeing it as the healing of the ‘community of creation’, and to decolonise our economics by taking Jesus’ Jubilee program seriously.

    Praise & Protest- Common Hymnal’s Brittney Spencer and Malcolm du Plessis

    Praise & Protest- Common Hymnal’s Brittney Spencer and Malcolm du Plessis

    Brittney Spencer is a songwriter-singer who sung and recorded with United Pursuit, Carrie Underwood, Carl Thomas, Jason Nelson and Twinkie Clark of The Clark Sisters, to name a few. While working as a minister of music at a progressive historic Black Church (AME) in Baltimore, Brittney was exposed to the role of culture in music, religion and much of her life’s experiences that led to her storytelling finding expression as part of the Common Hymnal family since 2016.

    Malcolm du Plessis has been relentless in calling others into the decolonising of the worship movement and for doors of dignity to be unlocked for more communities and ethnicities to contribute toward the ‘common’ hymnal. Malcolm has straddled the worlds of prophetic Christianity and showbiz for over thirty years initially as an instigator of multi-ethnic, multi-lingual worship that fused praise and protest in the apartheid era of his native South Africa. “I moved from one South Africa to another” and now in the USA Malcolm continues to lead as mentor to a new generation in activists and artists helping develop top 40 songwriters.

    The song playing at the end of this episode is called Rose Petals. Visit their Youtbe channel here to see more: https://youtu.be/P-3KikfQo_E
