Welcome to the H.U.E Podcast!

*SPECIAL NOTE – If you have not done so, please listen to the Introduction Episode of this series first. (scroll down)*

This is the first guest interview in the series: What Do We Tell The Children? How To Talk To A Child About Race and Identity.

In this episode, Brittany Salmon speaks to the dynamics of bridging the gap between a child’s adoptive family of origin and the heritage(s) they are gifted with. While providing a clear, three-part framework to support caregivers, she also emphasizes the significance of caregivers identifying and decentering their own cultural heritage toward the goal of a multicultural home. Brittany’s mix of candid advice and heartfelt encouragement inspires caregivers to confidently continue the humble pursuit of “better”.

Ep. 3 Remarkable Christianity? – Dr. Ruben Rivera

Welcome to the H.U.E Podcast!

*SPECIAL NOTE – If you have not done so, please listen to the Introduction Episode of this series first. (scroll down)*

This is the third guest interview in the series: Will the Church Ever be Free of White Supremacy?

In this episode, Dr. Ruben Rivera pursues a core question of the Church: how to take Christ the One Way into the cultural many? He stresses the necessity of Christ as always being culturally relevant but never culturally captive. Dr. Ruben calls us to a transformative faith that does not follow Christ while believing dehumanizing views of our personal “Samaritans” (“the other”).

Ep. 3 Lyrical Lesson – Remarkable Christianity?

The song “Brother” by The Brilliance provides a melody to the message Dr. Ruben Rivera stresses. When we see “the other”, the Samaritan we don’t agree with, as our brother (daughter, father, etc.), then we no longer disregard their humanity in the midst of our disagreements. This is the remarkable Christianity that Christ models and the Church, if we so choose, is empowered to share.
