n. A destructive process that leads to enlightenment
Earlier this year I stepped away from a creative project because God told me to make room. At the time, I didn't have a clear idea of what that meant, but I knew making room required that I step down from my role on The Wretch and The Righteous podcast and fill that time with what God would have me do next. Little did I know that a few days after walking away from the podcast, God would set me on a new path, ultimately giving me a more in-depth and yet painful realization of my "calling."
The last three years I've devoted a large portion of my free time diving deep into the bible trying to figure out what God has to say about race, ethnicity, equity, diversity, and reconciliation. I've read books and talked to different people groups with the hopes of understanding my relationship with faith and God's link to humanity. Throughout this process, I've learned two practical things and come to believe one about race issues in The United States.
For the next few weeks, I will post a thought every Monday that I've become enlightened too during my hunt for clarity. The "enlightenment" or "revelations" I've had, strengthened my faith, but of course, after wrecking it first. I'll dive into the wrecking a little later, but for now, I'll share what I've come to realize and expand on these in the weeks to come...
Be sure to check back next week Monday for the next post. In the meantime...
Stay tuned. Stay blessed. Stay WOKE.
