    An (Un)Racialized Body of Christ with Rev. Starlette Thomas

    An (Un)Racialized Body of Christ with Rev. Starlette Thomas

    Reverend Starlette Thomas joins us to help us see our skin color for what it is and deconstruct what it is not as she pastorally and prophetically disrupts and dismantles the racialized body of Christ so that we can reconstruct and re-member a Church body that reflects Christ and his gospel.
    Learn more about Starlette's work at The Raceless Gospel and Good Faith Media.

    Divine & Disabled Bodies with Dr. Amy Kenny

    Divine & Disabled Bodies with Dr. Amy Kenny

    Our guest today is Dr. Amy Kenny, who says that much of the church has forgotten that we worship a disabled God whose wounds survived resurrection.
    Dr. Kenny is a disabled scholar and a Shakespeare Lecturer whose research focuses on medical and bodily themes in literature. Her forthcoming book, My Body is Not a Prayer Request: Disability Justice in the Church, shows that the church is missing out on the prophetic witness and blessing of disability - and until we cultivate church spaces where people with disabilities can fully belong, flourish, and lead, we are not valuing the diverse members of the body of Christ.
    Pre-order Amy's book.

This podcast is allowing your full body to play a role in your spirituality and guiding you in that journey! Thank you for awakening my mind to my body without shame and guilt.

So authentic

Morgan is crafting an authentic and safe space for women to process their life experiences. She's leading by example and she isn't shying away from difficult conversations. This is a no shame zone where God's name is clearly glorified.

So helpful!

As a Christian woman, married in my early twenties after growing up in purity culture, I do appreciate how candid this podcast is. I really connect with Morgan because she shares some of the same things I have felt in my young marriage. Thanks for starting the conversation- this is so important!
