Episode 35: #GriefAND Theology featuring Kat Armas. Kat is a Cuban American writer and podcaster from Miami, FL. Her first book, Abuelita Faith: What Women on the Margins Teach Us About Wisdom, Persistence and Strength, sits at the intersection of women, decolonialism, the Bible, and Cuban identity. She also explores these topics and more on her podcast, The Protagonistas, which centers the voices of Black, Indigenous, and other women of color in theological spaces.
We are all interconnected, all of us are hand in hand, and all of us have our own role to play. As long as we are faithful and committed to whatever it is that we are called to do, then we are going to do huge things if we are committed to doing it together.Kat Armas
In this episode, Kat Armas begins our conversation by sharing a little bit about her story growing up as a Cuban American women. She shares about how she had to wrestle with her identity, particularly with being a woman theologian. Kat then goes on to share about what grieves her, specifically the issue of the exploitation of essential workers. Our conversation touches on the fact that we as part of the body of Christ not expected to try and do everything. We cannot do everything, otherwise we will become fatigued, but we can do the part that the Lord has given to us well. Kat also shares the inspiration behind her book Abuelita Faith and how her grandmother’s faith inspired her to look at life through a different lens. To see that despite the pain and trials life brings we can still say “gloria a Dios”.
