In Episode 22 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan, Janel, Liz & Alex interview Amanda Henderson from the Interfaith Alliance of CO.
As we walk into 2017 with an unknown political and social future ahead, many of us are concerned about oppression, marginalization and division ahead - especially for those who are most vulnerable. How will we respond? How will we build movements of resistance and resilience? Amanda Henderson, Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, guides us to explore how the first step to building a new world of radical justice and hospitality is to 'Gather our People'.
- Who are 'our people'?
- What does it look like to strengthen 'our people'?
- Who are those who aren't 'our people'?
- What is the risk and benefit of focusing on 'our people'?
This episode is relevant, indeed... Cheers!
