Episode 37: #GriefAND Community featuring Sandra Maria Van Opstal. Sandra is a second-generation Latina pastor, activist, author, and a powerful leading voice on the intersection of faith and justice.  She is executive director of Chasing Justice, a BIPOC-led movement that mobilizes Christians to live justly. Sandra’s distinctiveness comes from working in both local and global contexts as a practitioner and academic, which has solidified her calling to disrupt oppressive systems within the church and center marginalized voices. She holds a Masters of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and is currently pursuing doctoral work in Urban Leadership and Transformation. Sandra is the author of The Next Worship, as well as contributor to the New York Times bestselling book A Rhythm of Prayer.

We were created by our Creator to have community and communion with one another. And I think that is exemplified in the true nature of God.

Sandra Van Opstal

In this episode, Sandra and I talk about the importance of taking action against the injustices and issues that we see in our community, because that is the only way we are going to see and create change. Our conversation also touches on the fact that God is Lord over every tribe, tongue and nation and how as Christians we should seek to hear from the perspectives of people who come from different nations than we do. We are part of a global church and a global community and we each have something we can learn from and contribute to that community.
