Prophetic Praxis

February 5th, 2020|Categories: Doctor of Ministry Blog|Tags: , |

The empire known as the United States of America currently has a Commander and Chief who invites a Tuskegee Airman and honors Rush Limbaugh simultaneously at the State of the Union with no sensitivity to how polarizing that is, particularly in Black History Month. The occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. should discern the optics, which clearly commodify Black bodies [...]

The Gift of a New Year

January 8th, 2020|Categories: Doctor of Ministry Blog|Tags: , |

The opening of a new decade (according to the Gregorian calendar) has seen a full-scale display of the interlocking systems of oppression that terrorize humanity.

This is a matter of tremendous significance in this contemporary political moment when freedom of every sort is under direct attack. “To be free” indicates the ability to deal with the realities of one’s [...]

One of the hardest things for people of faith in community to talk about is sex and sexuality. The stigma and taboo of sexualized discourse in the North American church has its roots in the Puritanism of our nation’s theological roots. This tension around sex and sexuality is inextricably linked to our desire to avoid conversations about and simultaneous [...]
