255 - Voices of Lament: Reflections on Brokenness and Hope in a World Longing for Justice with Natasha Sistrunk Robinson and Mariah Humphries
Leader and author, executive coach, and veteran Marine, Natasha Sistrunk Robinson has a prayer that her latest work would be a classic. Voices of Lament: Reflections on Brokenness and Hope in a World Longing for Justice is a compilation of voices of women of color that is a timeless and unique work full of good words for our souls. Latasha Morrison discusses this rich book with Natasha and Mariah Humphries, Be the Bridge’s Director of Marketing and Innovation and one of the book’s 29 contributors. Listen in as they tackle subjects like recognizing culture as God intended, discipleship and biblical illiteracy, the systemic injustices in Christian publishing, and the challenges of leading as a Black woman. May this episode of the Be the Bridge podcast remind us all of the beauty and necessity of different languages, different stories, different experiences, different histories, and different people groups.
“Women of color, probably more than anyone in this world, but certainly in our country, we understand our lives being interrupted by things we don't have control over. Whether it's systemic injustice or family things or children things. And yet, we persevere through the suffering, through the mourning, through the lament.” -Natasha Robinson
“I wanted to stay very true to who I am as one voice, as a Mvskoke voice, but also part of one voice of a collective. And I thought it was just a beautiful combination of spiritual faith, and then a lived experience of ancestral experience.” -Mariah Humphries
