"The Word Is Resistance" is a weekly podcast by white anti-racist Christians based on the Christian lectionary, offering an anti-racist Word for other white anti-racist Christians -- though all are welcome to check it out!

What do our sacred texts have to teach us about living, surviving, even thriving, in the context of empire, tyranny, violence, repression - the times in which we are living today? What do they have to teach us, as white folx, about our role in resistance, in showing up, in liberation? They teach us this:

Our traditions were made for these times. They come from these times. So we have resources in our texts, our practices, to help us right now. We can reclaim our stories and re-tell them to nourish our resistance against white supremacy and our work for collective liberation.

    TWIR 1.17.21 Love For President

    Join Jean Jeffress as they have no idea what to say in the wake of the attempted violent take over of the Capital. The chickens of hundreds years of white supremacist violence are coming home to roost. The love talked about in Psalm 139 is a resting place to which we need to invite our white cousins (perhaps after they are all held accountable). Did I mention they didn't know what to say?

    TWIR 01.10.21 The Antidote to Terror Is Community

    In a moment of national terror hiding behind giant crosses and "Jesus 2020" banners, it is more important than ever that we articulate as clearly and open-heartedly as possible the meaning we derive from the life, ministry, and death of Jesus. In this episode, Nichola Torbett explores baptism as a an entry point to a community of solidarity that has nothing to do with triumphalism and everything to do with vulnerability and risk.

    ***SPOILER ALERT*** Hark! Jesus is Born!!!

    After #AbolitionAdvent, Rev. Margaret Ernst shares a Christmas message for 2020: including stories of feeling shame at needing support and solidarity after loss, and reflections on something Rev. Lynice Pinkard said in a recent bible study that she can’t get out of her head: that in a world full of Empire and suffering, it’s not that God is not powerful. It’s that God needs more friends.

    Our solidarity with God.
    God’s solidarity with us.
    Our solidarity with each other.

    TWIR 12.13.20 #AbolitionAdvent In the Midst of Ruin, the Longing

    "If Advent is about anything, it’s about the heartbreaking longing in the midst of despair because of oppression. It’s about looking at the world and longing for something different, something *better* than the violence of Babylon, or of Rome, or of the US."

    Join Rev. Anne Dunlap for this week's episode in the #AbolitionAdvent series.
