In this first episode of season 2 of Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community, we speak with Episcopalians committed to the Beloved Community about the texts for Palm Sunday. The texts covered in this episode are Mark 11:1-11 and 14:1-15:47. Our guests this week are:
- The Rev. Kevin Antonio (KA) Smallwood, associate rector for families, children, and youth at Grace Episcopal Church in Silver Spring, Md. When he’s not praying, he’s dancing to the rhythm of the beat for the tri-fold benefit of resisting the “isms”, self-care, and sharing the love.
- Michael Toy is originally from Texas and is currently waiting out the pandemic at St. Peter’s on Willis Anglican Church in Wellington, New Zealand.
- The Rev. Nancy Frausto is the associate rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, Cal., a founding member of the Diocese of Los Angeles Sanctuary Task Force, and a Dreamer (DACA recipient).
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.
