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 Malikโ€™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. Reeseโ€™s Christian experience began early in life in an apostolic congregation where his father pastored for many years. As a preacherโ€™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.

Ep 17: Ethnic Reconciliation & Justice w/ Stephanie Snow

• February 15th, 2021

On episode seventeen I have a conversation with Stephanie Snow! I've known Stephanie long enough that I wasn't even sure how we met (it was at a Vineyard church). On this episode we talk about issues connected to ethnic reconciliation, how churches can be more intentional toward diversity, her passion for justice as both a follower of Jesus and a lawyer, and much more!

About Stephanie:
Stephanie leads the Justice and Reconciliation Team (JRT) at the Vineyard Church of Hyde Park in Chicago, Illinois. In that role, she oversees the JRTโ€™s mission to pursue justice in the areas of racial justice, racial reconciliation, and human trafficking. Stephanie believes wholeheartedly that the Church should be a healing presence in communities by serving--with humility--oppressed persons and embracing them as neighbors. 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 OIGโ€™s mission to promote economy, effectiveness, efficiency, and integrity in City government. Her favorite bible verses are Micah 6:8, Isaiah 1:17, and Philippians 2:4. Stephanie finds great joy in books, music, coffee, British mystery series, and her adorable cat Thurry.

• January 12th, 2021

Season Two has started! On episode twelve, I have a conversation with Alexander Venter about how followers of Jesus should think about political engagement and allegiance. Hailing from South Africa, Alexander saw first hand how political ideology was ingrained in society and has some helpful thoughts about how the Church can be prophetic in its critique of all sides of the political spectrum.

Alexander is married to Gill and they have two adult children, Zander and Misha-Joy.
