Racially motivated hate crimes, mass shootings, and other tragedies have made so many of us feel unsafe in the world. In this latest episode of the Created For Podcast, Wendy Chen shares how she tries to make sense of her feelings about current events, and how she finds healing and is learning to bring her entire self to her faith walk.
Wendy is one of the Cru staff behind Created For. She’s been a part of developing it from the beginning. You might remember seeing her at our two live events where she served as our excellent and hospitable emcee. She serves as the Executive Director of Cru Embark, a ministry that helps 20-somethings in the city live richer, fuller lives. She currently resides in Portland, Oregon, with her husband Josh and their four children.
Wendy comes from an ethnically Chinese family, but was born in South Korea. She and her family immigrated to the United States when she was a child. In addition to talking about how her faith intersects with current events, she shares with us about how her immigrant experience has impacted her faith and her family, and how it’s given her heart for the ones often overlooked and misunderstood in our society.
You can find an episode reflection with invitations for deeper self-examination and more resources in our show notes.
