Mornings w Carmen 4-22-2019 hour 2: Amy Julia Becker and White Picket Fences plus international headlines
White Picket Fences: Turning Toward Love in a World Divided by Privilege is a book filled with tension. Through a vulnerable look into her own wrestling with the word, reality and theology of privilege as a white woman raised in the South and living in the Northeastern United States, Amy Julia Becker invites readers to ask hard questions and use their own privilege redemptively. Calling readers to a life of generosity, humility and hope, Amy Julia gets us to consider our unearned social advantages and those who experience rejection or exclusion based on a category. That’s categorical – and that’s how racism, sexism, classism, ageism and all the -isms work. Carmen and Amy Julia walk around in a candid conversation about privilege and how Christians can leverage the blessings and in turn be conduits of blessing to privilege others.
Then Carmen talks with David Aikman about the international headlines of the day.
- Sri Lanka
- Russian interference in democracies around the world
- Iran and the Middle East
- Nigeria and the Palm Sunday massacre of Christians by Fulani herdsman
