Most of us have a box our concept of God fits in. If you’re like either of us SOS hosts, you grew up in the Evangelical church believing there was one way to follow God. Read your Bible. Pray. Go to church as often as possible. Be a straight, white, male… At least that would be a safe assumption if you took your cues from the vast majority of church leadership. We’re grateful for this conversation with Minister Mitchell Anderson, a Minister in the United Church. Mitchell has a deep and rich faith, informed by the ferocious love of God and the gentle voice of Jesus he discovered when at his lowest point. We talk about his faith and how its informed by him being both gay and Indigenous. Mitchell beautifully describes a God that is always reforming, is never static, and already at work in the world. Our job isn’t to lead, but to join in wherever that work is happening. Even if that means doing so outside our church walls. Listen up!
