From the Faith in a Fresh Vibe Podcast
We close Season 3 with a final two part series. Part 1 discusses the work behind justice and becoming (more) anti-racist. Rohadi shares two pathways to consider in the lifelong journey of reconciliation. Building off of the free 6 chapter e-book, “Change the Story, A Small Resource on Dismantling Racism in Canada and the Church”, available on www.rohadi.com. 2020 is a year of profound change and movements towards justice. What do we need to sustain the efforts? This intro episode will help white people and those just starting the work of anti-racism.
In this episode we talk about slavery in Canada. Chad Lucas is an 8th generation Nova Scotian and provides a rich look at Black history. We talk the past, current white supremacy activity, and then switch gears into what it takes to belong. Chad left his church of 20 years after the denomination (same one I left) made a final statement to preserve the traditional definition of marriage.

Part 1 of 3. Episode 15 begins with the first of THREE parts with 12-time Dove Award winner, Drew Brown. In this episode we talk about living a Christian faith in the local parish context. Neighbourhoods rule and you need to listen to discover why. We then pivot to talk about defunding white churches (also LOL), and more importantly we start a conversation on re-imagining the lacklustre world of contemporary Christian music. Get on in!

Welcome to my series on racism and the church. This blog series, now being turned into a downloadable .pdf, was initially posted after the violence in Charlottesville in 2017. Although I've updated most of the content, the framework hasn't changed. Only names and...
5 years ago I posted this article as a reflection. I've revamped it and now ask, what will church membership look like post-COVID? I have a hunch. Purely a guess, but 25-50% membership decline. Not everyone, but as a whole. We're noticing how little we need the...

Thrive. Ideas to lead the church in post-Christendom.
“Thrive”, is a guide to help unlock features in you, and your church, to emerge as leaders and co-creators in our cities, neighborhoods, and beyond. With the increasing number of people claiming no religious affiliation, it may be surprising to learn core values like purpose, justice, spirituality, and love remain important. The stage is set. Our culture presents a great opportunity for the church that seeks to live out the Gospel in a post-Christian world.
