Thoughtful dialogue

Hard questions and tangled answers lead to a dialogue that unravels the heart of community and love.
This podcast isn’t easy, but it is uplifting in a way that makes me proud to be a Christian again and truly live those values of love and relationship.

Sanctuary in Seattle

Episodes 1-2 offer insights at a personal level about Jose Robles through the eyes of family, the pastors who have opened their church and hearts to him and his own reflections on who he is and why he wants to remain in Seattle. I am touched by the reality and the honesty of all. Sanctuary impacts so many more than just Jose. Episode 3 adds the voices of others in Seattle about Jose as well as the broader issues of migration and why so many people are seeking to be in the US. A wall is not the solution!
