“I know what to do. I just need to do it!” That was how I responded to my health coach when she asked if I had any questions about improving my diet and increasing my activity level.
I’m guessing that is true of you, too. We know what it takes to be physically healthy—exercise and good nutrition—but sometimes we struggle to do it.
Our spiritual lives are similar. We know what we need to grow as Christians, and we would benefit from some tips and tricks toward integrating it into our daily routine.
Get Your Spirit in Shape is an award-winning 30-minute podcast from United Methodist Communications produced and hosted by Joe Iovino. Episodes feature casual conversations with leaders, authors, and others who offer spiritual nutrition and exercises for our everyday lives.
Dr. Leah Gunning Francis describes herself as a seminary dean, mother and author.
As a seminary dean and scholar, she shares a theology of anti-racism and racial justice that begins with the imago dei, the recognition that all human beings are created in the image of God.
As an author, Dr. Gunning Francis wrote Ferguson and Faith after interviewing more than two dozen faith leaders who participated in the protests following the shooting death of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. She shares how people of faith joined the work for racial justice, and how we are called to join as well.
As the parent of two sons, she also shares some insights on how we can raise children to be anti-racist.
This is an important and inspiring conversation.
