Our hosts Kimberly Wagner and Marvin Wickware continue the series on Overwhelm. Today: Control will not save us. What does fear of losing control encourage us to do? What institutions and practices lure us with false promises of control? What if we imagine God's power as presence instead of control? How does an orientation of control encourage us to treat our bodies and those of others?
What might our leadership and lives look like if we give up control?
Our guests today are Pastor Franklin Golden of Durham Presbyterian Church in Durham, NC, and Pastor Veronica Mwakasungura, graduate and returning student of LSTC, ordained pastor with the Lutheran Church of Tanzania, serving with the Lutheran Church of Rwanda.
