If you’ve been around here any amount of time, you know that I’m a fan of Osheta Moore. She and I first became friends through various writing circles, which is a fancy way of saying The Internet. Eventually, the Shalom in the City podcast birthed. Eventually, she asked me to come on as co-host of the monthly Shalom Book Club.
Well, fast-forward a year later: the Shalom Book Club is still in full swing (and we’d love for you to join us in reading this month’s The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon) – but Osheta is changing the format, just a bit.
Instead of bringing on different guests every week, she’ll converse with three co-hosts, including myself, and one outside guest every month on the same theme.
And hopeful resistance is the theme we’re swimming in and playing with and tumbling through over the next four months.
Because what does it mean to be hope-filled, even when, and especially when it feels like all hope is lost?
What does it mean to enter into resistance, for change and in a healthy way?
What does it mean to find a healthy balance of both?
I’d love for you to listen to the first group episode on hopeful resistance that went live last week. You’ll hear from Osheta, me and new co-hosts Jerusalem Greer and Abby Perry. Then, in a couple of weeks, look for our Shalom Book Club episode, where we explore the theme of hopeful resistance within Yoon’s book.
It’s that awesome.
Thanks for joining in!
Hopeful resistance: is it a thing? What does it even mean? Where does a healthy balance between the two exist for you?0
