    Theology of Backsliding

    Theology of Backsliding

    Truth’s Table’s season six is nearing the finish line, y’all! Christina and Ekemini are the table talking about “backsliding.” Have y’all heard this saying in certain church circles that describes someone who is like the prodigal son? Well, regardless if you have or haven’t, Ekemini and Christina explain what it means to be “blackslidden.” They talk about the difference between a backslider and one who is an apostate. They talk about their own experience of being backslidden and how to minister to someone who might be backslidden, currently. Pull up a chair and have a seat at the table with us.

    You Owe You with Eric Thomas

    You Owe You with Eric Thomas

    In this episode, Ekemini and Christina sit down at the table with Eric Thomas to discuss his book, You Owe You, which is now a New York Times Bestseller! If you feel like success is for others, that only certain people get to have their dreams fulfilled, Eric Thomas’s You Owe You is your wake-up call. His urgent message to stop waiting for inspiration to strike and take control of your life is one he wishes someone had given him when he was a teenager—lost, homeless, failing in school, and dealing with the challenges of being a young Black man in America.

    Once he was able to break free from thinking of himself as a victim and truly understand his strengths, he switched the script. And now, with this book, Thomas reveals how you, too, can rewrite your life’s script. With support, he recognized that his unique gift is being able to capture the attention of all kinds of people in all kinds of settings—boardrooms, locker rooms, churches, classrooms, even the streets—thanks to his wealth of experiences and command of language. Today, Thomas considers himself blessed to speak to an audience that is as large as it is diverse, from the rich and famous to kids struggling in school to young men in prison hoping for a new start. No matter where you are on your journey toward greatness, you owe it to yourself to become fully, authentically you. And Eric Thomas’s You Owe You can help get you there.
    Eric Thomas, part coach, part preacher, all grind, is one of the world’s best known motivational speakers. In addition to reaching millions on YouTube, he works with many top businesses, the NFL, the NBA, the NCAA, and dozens of individual teams and players, as well as schools and prisons across the country. He has a PhD in education from Michigan State. Pull up a chair and have a seat at the table with us!

Expands my thinking

These ladies expand my thinking and challenge engrained thought patterns. I’m grateful for the way they challenge me to think more biblically and more deeply.

Truth’s Table: Forgiveness

Thank you ladies for being such an inspiration! So I just finished reading the chapter on Forgiveness by Christina and lemme tell you, it’s exactly what I needed and what so many other Black Women should read as well! This book has me jotting down notes (loving the support with scriptural text) and getting a shift in my spirit. Well written, thank y’all. -vondrasview

Always Fun and Informative to Sit at the Table

Don’t miss the discussion of WandaVision. It’s full of insight and you don’t have to be a Marvel nerd to enjoy it.

March 12 update - the episode on the Black Church with Dr. David Daniels and Dr. Vince Bantu blew away my misconceptions about the origins of the American Black Church and gave me so much to ponder. I’ll share the episode with friends.
