Grace & Healing with J.S. Park

CW: Conversation includes references to hospital life as a chaplain during the Covid pandemic. Please use discretion.

How do you lead others through loss when your own life needs healing, too? J.S. Park is a Korean-American author and chaplain located in Florida. His story is complex, nuanced, and honest – embracing the chaos of hospital pandemic life, fatherhood, anti-Asian rhetoric, and more. Listen in as he vulnerably describes the intention and compassion required to navigate life at the center of so many busy intersections.

Grace & The Margins with Rohadi

Author and speaker Rohadi is an insightful and intentional thought leader building diverse communities, church planting, and teaching on decolonizing and deconstructing Christianity. His latest book, titled When We Belong: Reclaiming Christianity on the Margins, is a beautiful challenge to anyone claiming the mantle of Christianity. In our conversation today, we delve into what church can look like when we learn to embrace an embodied ethic of justice on behalf of all humans – not just the ones who are familiar.
