#WhatsTheMessage EP 026: Bridging the Digital Divide Part I

In this episode Carmela and Claudia welcome Kirk Nugent and Dr. Paul McNeil to the podcast to discuss the digital divide and the recent digital shift. COVID-19 has thrust our churches, schools, and businesses into an exclusively digital space. But many still don’t know how to transition, they work with organizations that are still hostile to the digital shift and are simply pushing and awaiting reopening, and still others do not have access to the internet or digital devices. Our conversation highlights the realities of both the digital divide and this pandemic induced digital shift. Tune in to hear the tremendous information these experts share with us.

#WhatsTheMessage EP 019: How Bad Theology is Killing Us

In this episode Carmela and Claudia welcome Rev. William H. Lamar, Senior Pastor of Metropolitan AME Church in Washington D.C., to talk about his recent article “It’s not just the coronavirus — bad theology is killing us” published in the Faith & Leadership publication out of Duke Divinity. This is a powerful discussion that will challenge you to rethink the filter through which you understand scripture. Rev. Lamar teaches us the history of the Western Church and the ways the Bible and Scripture has been manipulated to support the efforts and agenda of those in power and key political positions. In this vain they also discuss Rev. Lamar’s perspective on President Trump’s photo in front of St. John’s church. Join us as we discuss the bad theology of Christianity and learn how to see the Bible through a lens that elevates Christ and the holistic needs of black people. This is a conversation you don’t want to miss. We’ll see you then!
