Podcast Feature: Pass the Mic Podcast

Hello Beautiful People,

I had the privilege of being a guest on the Pass the Mic Podcast hosted by Tyler Burns and Jemar Tisby and brought to you by The Witness: (A Black Christian Collective). Find out more at https://thewitnessbcc.com/

Writing What I Live with Natasha Sistrunk Robinson: Tyler Burns and Jemar Tisby are joined by Natasha Sistrunk Robinson to talk about both of her books Journey to Freedom: Discovering the God of Deliverance Bible Study & Voices of Lament: Reflections on Brokenness and Hope in a World. (Credit of episode description above given to Pass the Mic podcast).

Women of color know how to have joy in the mourning. We know how to lead in the dark…Generally, women of color are not those who abandon God because things don’t go our way…we are postured to know how to suffer well because we have a suffering Servant. We go to Jesus because where else are we going to go?

Natasha Sistrunk Robinson

In this episode I share the process of my Voices of Lament project, including why I felt it was important to hear and learn from women of color that come from all different kinds of backgrounds and cultures. I also discuss why topic of lament is important and how it is relevant in our culture today. During the conversation, I also share insights about my Journey to Freedom Exodus Bible Study, the hours research that I went through to be able to pour into this project and share what I had learned. Tyler Burns, Jemar Tisby and I also unpack the significance of the Old and New Testament, specifically discussing taking the time to study the Old Testament in order to further our understanding about God and who He has called us to be.

I believe in the West, we have a New Testament church with an Old Testament practice of theology. We have set up the church, the building, not the body, as a tabernacle where the pastor is the priest. Where everybody is waiting for the pastor to give them a Word from the Lord and the pastor to tell them what to do…but the problem is Jesus has become our great High Priest, He is perfect in every way that the Levitical priests were not.

Podcast Feature: Where Ya From? Podcast

Hello Beautiful People,

I had the privilege of being a guest on the Where Ya From? Podcast hosted by Rasool Berry and brought to you by The Voices Collection of Our Daily Bread Ministries. Find out more at experiencevoices.org

Where Ya From? Episode #32 with Natasha Sistrunk Robinson: “I’m Not Going to Quit.” What do you do when life puts you at the end of your rope? On this inspiring episode of Voices Where Ya From? Podcast, retired Marine Office, Author and International Speaker, Natasha Sistrunk Robinson speaks about where you find your grit when you’re all alone and have every odd against you. (Credit of episode description above given to Where Ya From? Podcast)

This is the challenge of what it really means to be a disciple is living and walking in the way of Jesus and not that you just have all the theological points right, I think it is important to have theological points right, let me be clear, but I think sometimes we lose sight of the humans, the image bearers of God when we are trying to do the work that God has called us to.

Natasha Sistrunk Robinson

In this episode, I share my personal experiences and stories about my life growing up in South Carolina and how that shaped and impacted me as I grew older and eventually entered the military. Throughout my conversation, I share insight into what it is like to be a black woman living in our society and culture through the lens of the various seasons in my life, and highlighting some of the differences between my experiences growing up and my experiences today. Rasool and I also unpack the important issues within the education system, the church, and where to find strength when you are faced with the hardships of life. Through my personal story, I had the opportunity to illustrate how faith in God is what I held onto through every season of my life, in spite of the hardships, challenges and overwhelming odds I faced. Jesus Christ is the strength that I have always held onto so that I will never give up and never quit.

“Disciple making is not just about programming. It’s not just about Bible study. It’s not just about going to church. It’s not just about activity. I look at disciple making in the way that Jesus models for us with the twelve men we call apostles and the women that accompanied them on the journey of investing large amounts of time with small groups of people, because I believe that’s where we’re going to have the greatest impact.”
