This week I’m in conversation with Cassandra Calin and Megan Sharkey. Cassandra, who also goes by CC, is Soulforce’s Board Chair and Megan is the Director of Ruckus. They are partners, trained social workers and long-time supporters and friends of Soulforce. Our conversation illuminates the ways that white Christian Supremacy shapes systems of oppression and impacts our perception of self and self-worth. CC makes some incredible points about how Biblical messaging is taken out of context to create oppressive and unrealistic societal standards, and Megan offers some really lovely guidance on empowering oneself through political consciousness and community connections.
As a heads up, we are bringing the Go With Grace podcast to a close. I’ve truly enjoyed being on this learning journey with y’all. Despite the increasingly chaotic moment we find ourselves in, I am hopeful for the future. I’m inspired by all of us who are willing to continue forward with honesty, grit, rest, creativity and joy in the face of our hardships.
I know that if we continue to deepen our understanding of our world, each other and spirit, we’ll never be wrong.
This is a really wonderful episode to end on. I hope you enjoy my conversation with CC Calin and Megan Sharkey.
