3 New Things


I love the work of The Global Immersion Project and got to study peacemaking with them on the San Diego/Tijuana border right before COVID shut down travel. I was thrilled to be on their podcast and talk about how I practice everyday peacemaking: “My first Global Immersion-type experience happened when I was in high school. I went to Guatemala, and that was the first time—at an extremely formidable age—that I realized I was a global citizen, and that how I live my life affects people all over the world.”

As a practical theologian, mama of two and professional boundary crosser, I have been living into thoughts on contemplative healing and contending with the problem of ‘whiteness’ as peace work. LISTEN TO THE EPISODE.
