We hope you all got the chance to enjoy our Shake the Dust episode with Milly Silencio last Friday. If not, give it a listen. It was a really fascinating and fun conversation. And now, here are this week’s highlights to help us leave colonized faith for the Kingdom of God.
If you don’t follow J. S. Park on Instagram or have his book, The Voices We Carry, you should! This Instagram carousel is worth your time and attention. Park describes a tension, struggle, and consistent dissonance of following a perfect Christ while being a member of an imperfect and sometimes oppressive community of Christians. Through the photos and captions he models a willingness to consistently confess, lament, repent, and remain in community. Followers of Jesus must confess where we have been complicit, lament the impact and suffering we have caused, turn away from harmful practices to pursue redemption, and stay in the Body. The world needs more witnesses like Park who are willing to name the nonsense and hypocrisy and call for righteousness and justice from inside the Church on behalf of those outside of it.
