Grace & Groundings, Ohio Conference’s resource team focused on racial awareness and reconciliation, is sponsoring a series of monthly podcasts about social righteousness and shalom.

The series began in January, with plans to publish one episode each month through May.

Each episode focuses on a different topic designed to draw listeners into deeper conversations about issues of social righteousness and shalom. Two podcast episodes in this series have been published so far:

In “Building Brides and Seeking Shalom,” Doug Zehr introduces the series and discusses five misconceptions about racism.

In  “Building a New Life in Ohio,” host Kevin Himes talks with two guests, Alex Murza and Terry Shue. Alex and his family are building a new life in Ohio after leaving Ukraine, and Terry and many others in the local community have played a part in the Murza family’s resettlement in Kidron.

Upcoming topics in this series will include food deserts, how to deal with race, and homelessness. All episodes will be shared as part of the Ohio Conference Cast podcast:
