The tragic events that unfolded this past weekend have thrown our country once again into sorrow and turmoil. As we try to process this crisis of humanity we are facing, I thought it important to share once again a recent episode of Our Voices Matter podcast with guest, Hannah Adair Bonner. So much of what she has to say is relevant to the national conversation we are having.
As an LGBTQ pastor in the United Methodist Church who lives on the Arizona/Mexico border and works with immigrants, Hannah has a multi-layered perspective on the divides that are tearing us apart, and steps we can all take to heal.
“We cannot have a healthy, honest, loving, healing dialogue if people refuse to acknowledge that truth matters.” Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner has taken great risks to stand in her truth and challenges us all to do the same, for the sake of our collective future. Whether in the workplace, at home or in the public arena, are you willing to acknowledge and embrace truth to move in a positive direction? Share your thoughts with the OVM community and enjoy my wide-ranging conversation with Hannah in this episode of @Our Voices Matter with Linda Lorelle.
