Description: This is Part 2 of our “Take It to the Bridge” series with founder Latasha Morrison! Latasha is back on the other side of the mic as guest host Tandria Potts guides us through an insightful discussion on current events where the church and culture collide. Latasha brings her own perspective on hope in dark times, what keeps her steady through constant racial trauma, and how Be the Bridge uses education to transform lives and build bridges across racial divides.

“I still have hope for the church and for the body of Christ, the people of God.” - Latasha“When the world is telling us to dehumanize someone and to strip them of their dignity, Scripture is telling us to do the opposite of that! Even when it comes to our enemies.” - Latasha

“We’re called to be loyal and faithful to the God we serve, not to the country that we live in. If I didn’t love this country, I wouldn’t be doing the things that I’m doing. I want America to be better—we can do better, we can be better. But also, on a deeper level, I love people. And I love God’s people. I love the people that God has created that inhabit this country.” - Latasha

“When we say we are the body of Christ, the body is beyond the USA.” - Latasha“We cannot think that we’re the apple of God’s eye. Because what does that say about China? What does that say about Korea? What does that say about Mexico? What does that say about Brazil? Are they not children of God? Are they not created in the image of God? When patriotism leads you to dehumanize and to defame and to marginalize and to think of yourself as better, that drives that type of supremacy thinking.” - Latasha

“We want to pull people into the community, and we pull people into the community through this process of education.” - Latasha“Without hope, I couldn’t do this work. I don’t want to sound like a cliché, but Jesus gives me hope. I do this because I know that it’s the right thing to do, and I feel like Jesus is leading me in doing this work. Because when darts come or when difficult seasons come, and when you do become hopeless, what is your anchor? Who is your anchor?” - Latasha

“Even with this season that I’m in now—it’s darts, it’s disappointments, it’s surprises, it’s sadness, it’s sorrow, it’s grief. But looking to the author and finisher of our faith, that’s the thing that keeps me and that holds me and that comforts me ultimately.” - Latasha
