The food ministry (pantry and meals) at Trinity Episcopal Church in the Central West End has recently begun a Saturday morning art club after breakfast and before lunch together. Food ministry manager Barbi Click talks with host Harry Leip about the nourishment from food and art.
Host Barbi Click and guest Annette Joseph talk about Jubilee ministry, the food pantry, dismantling racism, worship mob, and the small and holy moments we are blessed to witness. The Rev. Annette is rector of Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Poplar Bluff, the newest Jubilee Ministry center in the Episcopal Church.
Shug Goodlow is in the guest chair today. She’s the head verger at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis and also one of the hosts of this podcast. She’s interviewed by Barbi Click. The conversation began about Shug’s memories as a black child traveling with her family across the Mason Dixon line, the planning gatherings beforehand, mapping out safe places to stop and eat, the shoebox her grandmother prepared of food to take. The conversation continued to sharing memories of racism and how faith weaves in and out of those painful narratives.
Jeanne Lucas King talks with Barbi Click about being raised on gratitude, praying with gratitude, and her work with the United Thank Offering, a way that Episcopalians around the church offer their gratitude and small change to fund grants that change the world.
