Just a reminder that the next episode of the Rogue Ministry Podcast is up. In this one we finish up our interview with the inimitable Lindsey Krinks of Open Table Nashville, Inc. about the amazing work she has been doing befriending folks in tough spots, often those without a home, and advocating for better housing options. We welcome questions and feedback. Also, you can expect a new episode to drop every second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Please share widely.
In this episode of the Rogue Ministry Podcast I interview our friend Lindsey Glenn Krinks about her work as a homeless outreach and community organizing vet and Co-Founder and Interim Co-Director at Open Table Nashville. Lindsey has a knack for calling everyone to be more than they currently are while making them feel loved and uniquely special in each moment. She is also a fighter who has been doing battle with unjust power structures refusing to back down until love and justice intertwine in her communities. She also blogs, which is just a foretaste of her forthcoming book Praying with Our Feet. This is part one of two from our conversation.

Rachel and I will be coming at you with more interviews with the most interesting and compelling ministry leaders from around the world every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. Listen up!
Owenwood friends and neighbors, Rachel and I have finally gotten our long-promised podcast up and running. This podcast will be dedicated to interviewing the most interesting ministry leaders from around the world, including, of course, some folks from WRUMC and Owenwood about starting, joining, or sustaining faithful Christian ministries. It will be available soon on several more podcasting platforms. Please take a listen and share as widely as you can in your networks!

Today we celebrate the 156rd anniversary of Juneteenth. ⛓❌

Juneteenth is a holiday that commemorates the last enslaved African Americans in the United States being declared free. The Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, however, the news of freedom did not reach Texas until two and a half years later. It came by way of Major General Gordon Granger, who announced General Order No. 3 to the people of Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865.

We remember and celebrate Juneteenth every year because this is the REAL independence day, a day when Black people were truly free for the first time. We take this day to celebrate Black liberation and also remind ourselves that the work is far, far from complete.

As Coretta Scott King says, "Struggle is a never-ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation."

👉🏽The question remains: what freedoms are we going to fight for in this generation? What are we doing to further Black liberation today and EVERY day?

We are so grateful for Erica, Janice, and Cece! Thank you for your love and commitment to our work.

Meet Erica, Janice, and CeCe. These are the people that are really running the show. Erica and Janice were guests of Diapers, Etc. way back in 2017, and they realized that we were growing and needed serious help. Since then, they have been long-time volunteers that work not just on Saturdays but throughout the month to get your boxes of goods ready. CeCe has joined us more recently, and the three of them get boxes prepped, help us problem solve, bring a positive attitude, and even mentor some of the guests that we have met over the years.

[10/02/20]   Many of you know Justin Barringer as the co-founder of diapers etc and the incredible work this ministry has done at Owenwood. In case you didn't know, Justin is not only our Director of Social Outreach; but also a theologian and scholar. His newest book was released yesterday and can be found on the link attached.
Justin, we are grateful for your commitment to friendship and justice. You and Rachel have done incredible work and we are grateful for your partnership in this work.
