Tackling the topics most Christians are too scared to talk about
IS BLM A RESPONSE
TO CHURCH FAILING?
Episode 3 of the Church Unboxed Podcast is available to stream now
In this episode of Church Unboxed, we unpack racism in the church and I’m joined by Baptist minister Rev Dr Israel Olofinjana, who amongst other things, is on the Christian Aid working group of black majority church leaders exploring the intersection of climate justice and racial justice and has created a useful compilation of resources on race relations and climate justice - https://www.eauk.org/what-we-do/networks/one-people-commission/recommended-reading-by-one-people-comission
Earlier in 2021, I hosted a live Youtube panel addressing the issue of racism in the church and one thing that came to light was the fact that the church seemed to be many steps behind when it came to proactively responding to matters of racial justice in society. As Christians, how do we take the lead in matters of justice, whilst at the same time tackling issues biblically? In my opinion, this may be a tricky thing to balance, but it nonetheless needs to be done.

THE CONVERSATIONS WE'RE UNCOVERING
Church Unboxed is not your average faith-based Podcast. It's not for church-goers who are easily offended. It's not a shallow synopsis of contemporary culture. We're uncovering the issues that have been swept under the rug and listening to people how have felt marginally and sometimes even ignored.
Chruch Unboxed tackles the topics that Christians are too scared to talk about.
We are looking for guests to share their experiences over a 30-minute audio interview with Sarah for Series 2. The Podcast is being produced in partnership with Andy Baker & Homegrown Worship. Collectively, the team behind Church Unboxed has produced media content for The BBC, GOD TV, TBN, UCB & Premier Christian Radio.
