    #043 Monique Duson, Center for Biblical Unity

    -Critical Race Theory, growing up in South LA during tense racial moments, racism in the church, and how hearts can be reconciled.

Monique is now convinced that CRT is not the best way to achieve racial unity and actively speaks out against the use of CRT within the church. Her mission is to promote a vision for racial healing based on the historic Christian worldview. Monique has a BA in Sociology from Biola University. She is working on a MA in Theology

Thought provoking and encouraging!

There is not an episode I’ve listened to that I haven’t enjoyed and gleaned greater understanding. More Than A Conversation is more than a conversation! Patrick provides more than the traditional interview podcast, it’s thought provoking, encouraging, and engaging as Patrick spends time diving in with each guest. Thanks for what you do!
