Stories of Racialized Experiences

A deeply formative and reflective episode with Ms Micah Morgan. Where does one land when balancing the tensions between a fascination with theological questions surrounding body and suffering, and the lived experience in the church and beyond? Grappling with a sense of belonging and questions of sovereignty, Micah inserts joyful tones from her faith experience in the search for justice and wholeness. That brings us to her work today and what it means to be a Black reconstructing Christian.
