Episode 62: #MeToo with Janel Apps Ramsey

December 12, 2017

Two weeks ago, the Denver Brew Theology community met at Grandma's House Brewery and talked about #MeToo. It was a challenging topic, but one that we knew we needed to meet about and try to cover. Needless to say, there was no way to cover everything. But we gave it a shot. 

As a result of that evening, Janel has recorded a podcast to also cover some of the material. This is definitely not everything we did, nor is it a comprehensive episode. But we hope that it opens up the topic and creates room for healthy listening and dialogue.

This podcast is probably PG13, in that there are a few stories about things women have experienced.

Janel would like to thank several people for their contributions. Dr. Christy Sim is a domestic violence expert who helped with the resources and layout of the evening. Dr. Kara Lyons-Pardue is a professor of NT who helped me with liturgical resources. Lyndia Radice is an experienced Social Worker who also helped make sure this discussion was helpful and healthy.

Janel thanks Ryan for reflecting on his own experiences in the church around this topic along with Baird (Janel's husband) for talking with the Denver community about HR policies. As always, a BIG thank you to Dan Rosado for being the best podmaster ever!

Following are a list of resources referenced in the podcast or used in our discussion. If you would like to host your own discussion please reach out and let us know.

If you were triggered in any way and need someone to talk to, please reach out to Janel or Ryan. Or you can reach out to these other agencies or Dr. Sim.

Episode 53: Power of Proximity Part 2 with Michelle Warren

September 24, 2017

"We can see evidence of injustice all around us, whether in continuing incidents of racial inequality or in the systemic forces that disenfranchise people and perpetuate poverty. It's important to learn about the world's inequities and to be a voice for the voiceless any way we can. But in an age of hashtag and armchair activism, merely raising awareness about injustice is not enough. Michelle Warren knows what is needed. She and her family have chosen to live in communities where they are "proximate to the pain of the poor." This makes all the difference in facing and overcoming injustice. When we build relationships where we live, we discover the complexities of standing with the vulnerable and the commitment needed for long-term change. Proximity changes our perspective, compels our response, and keeps us committed to the journey of pursuing justice for all. Move beyond awareness and experience the power of proximity." - Michelle Warren* (Power of Proxmity)

This is Part 2 of 2 with Michelle Warren talking about her latest book, Power of Proxmity. Janel, Ken, Rob and Ryan had a great time recording this show with Michelle. Enjoy episode #53 of the Brew Theology Podcast...  & cheers, friends!
