People have been thinking about and studying God and the Bible forever. But, for a long time, only certain people’s voices were listened to, especially within Western Christianity. European men had a lot of good things to say (and some bad things!) But the voices of others were often silenced.
We’re missing out on the voices of Black voices, indigenous voices, people of color’s voices, queer voices and more. A variety of perspectives expands our ideas about who God is, who god is for, and how God acts in this world. This year we’ll highlight some of these voices once a month on the third Sunday. You can read more about it on the blog.
On December 13th, we talk with Rev. Tuhina Verma Rasche. Tuhina has a complicated relationship with Jesus. She lives a hyphenated life as a second-generation Indian-American woman raised in a devout Hindu household and often finds herself in liminal spaces. She is ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and is called to work for the representation of God’s full diversity in the church. Her work focuses on dismantling white supremacy and conversations on the complexity of identities. She loves stories and believes sharing narratives are integral to building relationships.
