Listen to St. Louis faith leaders talk race, religion
For our holiday episode, we talked to faith leaders about their experiences addressing race with their congregations.
We wanted to know if they felt obligated to address race (many said yes); whether parishioners were receptive (sometimes); and why it was or was not an important part of their ministry (you’ll have to listen to the show to find out).
And at the end of the interviews, we asked each faith leader to share an example from a religious text that they felt supported their opinion on the link between race and religion. Some quoted scripture, and others told a parable.
