This is a special episode of the Antioch Podcast where we stepping away from our regular conversational format to hear from two of our regular team members. Up first, we will hear a chapel presentation given by Dr. Michelle Loyd Paige for Calvin Univerity’s Unlearn week. Unlearn is a yearlong program that kicks off with a week of special presentations on diversity and inclusion at Calvin University. Some of you will remember that a couple episodes back, we released an episode of the podcast that the entire Antioch team did for Unlearn week. Unlearn is a yearlong program that kicks off with a week of special presentations on diversity and inclusion at Calvin University. This talk, based on the book of Jerimiah, captures the sense of longing many people are feeling at this time when were are preparing for a national election in an era of racial unrest and the resurgence of COVID-19 across the United States.
The episode will conclude with a reflection on Psalm 37, a psalm about waiting during unsettled times. This felt appropriate as many of us are anxiously awaiting the outcome of a presidential election which has been rife with language and policy proposals of concern to people committed to Biblical Antiracism.
