Faith and Race Podcast

The Faith and Race Podcast is designed to help churches of all colors host constructive dialogue about faith, race, and the Church. Every episode has a specific focus so as to intentionally think about the intersection of history, institutions, scripture, prayer, race, and justice. The audio recordings will help bring the diverse insights and experiences of interviewees into churches, homes, and hearts across Missouri and beyond. For the first season, all of the interviewees are African-American Methodists from Missouri, each with a powerful story to tell. In addition to the podcast, a small group curriculum is also available to help guide groups to discuss the issues raised in each episode and what these issues might look like in their church or community.
