Ep 25: Disabilities in the Church w/ Dr. Louise Gosbell

• April 26th, 2021

On episode twenty-five, I'm talking with Dr. Louise Gosbell, an Australian biblical scholar who specializes in the subject of disabilities. Dr. Gosbell has written numerous articles and projects on how churches can engage with (and include) people with disabilities. We discussed the following:

  • What is a disability?
  • Why does this matter for the Church?
  • What Biblical texts are primarily formative in developing a theology of disability?
  • How do we engage other scholarship on the subject?
  • What about the subject of healing?
  • What does it look like for churches to become more inclusive?

About Louise:
Dr. Louise Gosbell is the Dean of Students and Lecturer in New Testament at Mary Andrews College in Sydney, Australia. Louise’s PhD, which looked at disability in the gospels, was completed at Macquarie University in 2015 and was published in 2017. Louise has a keen interest in the issue of disability and has been involved in various aspects of ministry and academic writing in this area for over 20 years. She has also been in the role of Sydney co-ordinator for CBM’s Luke 14 program training churches in disability inclusion for 10 years. Louise has recently completed writing a disability handbook for the Sydney Diocese of the Anglican church which will be launch in April this year which aims to help churches to become more inclusive of people with disabilities and their families. Louise is married to Mark who is a Principal at a special school and they have 3 teenage daughters. Louise is an avid reader in any form – ebooks, audiobooks and real books! Louise is also a slightly fanatical U2 fan and has seen them in concert 24 times.

Ep 19: Lament & Social Justice w/ Reese Hogg III

• February 21st, 2021

On episode nineteen I'm talking with my new friend Reese Hogg III. Reese and I have been connected through social media for awhile and finally had a chance to sit down and have a conversation. In addition to hearing Reese share his thoughts on social justice, church, and worship, he shared how lament and grief, after the murder of his son, has been a space for encountering God and learning about worship. I was unaware of this aspect of Reese's life and I'm still processing all that I have learned from him from this conversation.

About Reese:
Reese Hogg III is a recording artist, activist, pastor, and community leader. He is also the CEO and co-founder of the ANSA Investment Group LLC. Reese and his wife Miriam suffered the loss of their son Malik to violence in 2017, and following Malik’s murder, his killer was allowed to go free without an arrest or charges. Reese offers a first-person perspective of systemic racism and racial inequality. Reese’s Christian experience began early in life in an apostolic congregation where his father pastored for many years. As a preacher’s kid, Reese served in numerous capacities within the church. Later Reese joined Victory Baptist Church in Ridgecrest, CA, where he served in ministry for over 20 years before joining Ridgecrest Vineyard Church, a church plant of Palmdale Vineyard, where he served as pastor of compassionate ministries until his recent departure in December of 2020.

Vocationally, Stephanie is an attorney, currently working as an Assistant Inspector General for the Chicago Office of Inspector General. In that position, she provides legal advice in support of OIG’s mission to promote economy, effectiveness, efficiency, and integrity in City government.
