Reflection Part 2: Certainty, Suffering, and Who’s Not at the Table?

Season 1, Episode 13


This week is part two of the hosts’ conversation reflecting on what we have been hearing from our guests. Today, we cover how and why to think about perspectives not represented at the tables where we find ourselves sitting, the overemphasis on certainty and control in colonized faith, why suffering is a greater theological problem in white churches, how power and security detract from faith in Jesus, and a lot more.
