Episode 24: Shawn Anglim
Shawn Anglim is pastor of First Grace UMC in New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina, Shawn was assigned to two UM churches a mile apart--one black and one white, and both devastated by the storm. Working with their leaders, Shawn merged the two congregations into one.
In this episode, Matt talks to Shawn about this merger, preaching in a racially diverse congregation, and how the needs of a church's immediate context should inform its mission.
