In this fourth episode of season 4 of Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community, we speak with Episcopalians committed to the Beloved Community about the texts for Good Friday. The texts covered in this episode are Psalm 22 and John 18:1-19:42. Our guests this week are:
- Betty Peterson, who serves at-risk babies and moms as a nurse and social worker for the Brightstart program. She comes to us from the Orthodox faith tradition and attends Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Sioux Falls, S.D., where she is a chanter.
- Dr. Enid LaGesse, who is here because of the sacrifices of her enslaved ancestors and those of the Anacostan and Piscataway on whose stolen sacred land she now lives. Enid brings more than 30 years of diversity, equity, and inclusion leadership experience to her current role as the co-chair of the Race and Social Justice Committee for the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. She facilitates workshops on anti-racism, intersectionality, and interfaith dialogue.
Prophetic Voices is hosted by the Rev. Isaiah “Shaneequa” Brokenleg, The Episcopal Church’s staff officer for Racial Reconciliation. For more information on Becoming Beloved Community, visit iam.ec/becomingbelovedcommunity.
