Episode 139 – Rediscipling The White Church With David W. Swanson
Episode sponsored by DiverseChurchJobs.com
We have, for a number of our previous episodes directly addressed and discussed the issues that we have faced during our pandemic. At various points, we will pause those discussions to lean into additional conversations that are relevant to our audience. This week is one of those times.
The Wise Idea Podcast welcomes Pastor David W. Swanson, author of Rediscipling The White Church: From Cheap Diversity To True Solidarity, sat with our host to talk about why he planted a multi-ethnic ministry in the heart of black Chicago, what led him to write a book (prior to the pandemic) that deals with race issues focused on churches that are predominantly white. His conviction to the conversation around justice and the history of race in America is clear. Not only does he unpack the why behind the book, the topics of the book, he really reveals why the church has not been united its in approach to issues of race and color in America
