A square image. It is a somewhat abstract Illustration in warm, bright colors of a blue and white landscape with flecks of orange. The landscape itself is undulating in about 4 waves descending from the top right to bottom left corners of the image. The sun is partially visible on the top left and the sky is blue. White, cursive lettering spells out “Shake the Dust” across the ground.

Today, we have a conversation with returning guest Milly Silencio (formerly Milly Aquije) about the effect that acquiring privilege at different points in life has on us, our relationships, and our interactions with God. Milly goes into detail on the tension between being an undocumented activist who is now married and applying for a Green Card. Each of the hosts also discuss their own interactions with the notion of gaining new status, and the result is a fascinating and deeply personal conversation on multiple subjects like money, education, and “healing” disabilities. Enjoy!
