Episode 60: We Have Some Healing To Do

Episode 60: We Have Some Healing To Do

It was in the early 1990s and I was sitting in the basement of a church in Washington, DC. The church was having a special board meeting to decide on calling an associate pastor. There was some controversy because the pastor was in favor of LGBT equality and at that time it was still a live issue in mainline Protestantism, especially in the American Baptist Churches, the congregation’s denominational affiliation. You may think you know how this is going to end, but it ended in a way that surprised people. It was an example of a search for common ground which seems so alien to our society today. In light of Thanksgiving, a time when we worry about having political arguments, I’m sharing this podcast episode from March where I share the story of two women and the work of finding common ground. I hope you will give it a listen. You can listen to it on YouTube below and on various podcast platforms.
