    This will take on a bit of a confessional tone.

    A few years ago, Dr. Christena Cleveland talked on my podcast about the need for black leaders to steer away from trying to influence white spaces so often. The effort, she clarified, to change white minds about whiteness, should be executed by white hands. Not because of a hatred or distain among black leaders for the people in white-centered cultures, but as a matter of workload, exhaustion and, in a sense, effectiveness.

    “If you really wanted to help, you’d up and move to Africa.”

    It was a few minutes after I’d just spoken at a college chapel and a particularly fired-up student was trying to convince his classmates to resist child sponsorship in favor of a more radical and, in his mind, more holistic response to the problem of extreme poverty.

    Overwhelmed And I Should Be

    Overwhelmed And I Should Be

    “Sometimes, God gives us glimpses into the enormity of the work at hand, not to increase our capacity to do a larger work or more work but so that the work we can do becomes more vital and less optional. We are compelled to do the work we can do because we cannot do all we want.”
    I wrote that on the way home from a 10 day trip to India with Compassion international. It was, to be entirely honest, a life-altering trip for several reasons, including a very humbling breakdown I had on day 9 of that trip.

    It was somewhere in the early 2000s when I got a package in the mail from a friend, who had just taken a job with an organization that purported to rescue people from slavery. And I've got to admit, and especially at the time, it was something of an embarrassing admission that I had no idea that that was a need. It blew my mind.

    I ran into a friend recently whom I haven’t seen in a while. And at first, I didn’t recognize him. Some of that had to do with the time between meetings. But more of it had to do with context. The last time I saw him was in California in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

    In the book Prayer: 40 Days of Practice, I take a swing at unpacking the word “spiritual;” not an effort to redefine the word for all users, but an effort to expand its application to meet my own experience and expectation.

Thanks for the honest and helpful conversations!

One of my favs

The start of the third season of this podcast jumps right back into the depth it started from with a cut-to-the-quick kind of conversation about justice, mercy, power, race...all the things we need to have conversations about. I’ve listened through the first 2 seasons, and that’s what I love most about this podcast. It’s about real situations and artistry that have important impacts for all of us in community together and it challenges us as listeners to continue learning, to create, to speak up, and do something beyond simply being informed.

It’s also encouraging to hear the stories of Justin’s guests who are people in all sorts of areas of expertise and status in life with one main thing in common — they are all people of passion who aren’t willing to just sit and watch the world spin. I love that this show isn’t just about one genre or one topic, but multiple conversations that overlap and all matter in our current culture and climate. They are all people worth learning from to say the least, and Justin leads the shows with great guiding questions and insight so I come away from each episode feeling connected to their stories and with a desire to dig deeper.

Engaging and Inspiring

Refreshing to hear honest conversations, with thoughtful questions and great content. Just found this through the Ryan O'Neal interview, but I'm hooked!

Geek comment : I do think the audio could be compressed a bit more so that the audio is louder and voices clearer while out and about, but even still turn it up and give a listen.
