Welcome to Madang. 

Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renowned authors, leaders, public figures, and scholars on religion, culture, and everything in between.

Here in the 22nd episode of Madang, I converse with Kelly Brown Douglas, dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary and canon theologian at the Washington National Cathedral, about her new book, Resurrection Hope.

We discuss how her dialogue with her son was pertinent to writing her book. She also discusses Whiteness, anti-Blackness in the church, #blacklivesmatter, resurrection, and hope. It is a great conversation about how we can work toward just communities to fight anti-Blackness in the church and society.  This is a wonderful book which will challenge readers to fight racism and live transformative lives with resurrection hope.
