Rev. Sonja B. Williams, Ph.D. joins me to talk about racism, Black Lives Matter, and the state of the church and the academy in this important episode of the Liminal Theology Podcast. Sonja is the Dean of Students at Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis Missouri.
In part 1, we discuss a “nation on hospice,” connecting Sonja’s time as a hospice chaplain with the current situation in America. We explore the importance of conversation, listening, and activism during this crucial turning point in history. Sonja argues that it’s time for the church to get involved and move beyond “thoughts and prayers.” Her question for the church is: “Have you prepared us for this moment?”
