This week we sit down with Angela Hopkins of Ithaca Monthly Meeting in New York. Callid drove through a near-blizzard to visit her at the Burtt House, which is home to the Friends Center for Racial Justice (FCRJ). The FCRJ was born of a concern that Angela carries for Friends and the spiritual work of racial justice. Angela shares how she came to Friends in Kenya - tens of thousands of miles from her home in Ohio - and then traveled to Friends meetings in Africa accompanying her pastor and learning about Friends in both Africa and North America. When Angela returned to the United States she began to worship with Friends in New England and, eventually, in New York. Angela shares stories of opportunities that emerge when one listens faithfully to the nudges of the Spirit. We hope you will enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
Reflection questions, show notes, and a transcription of the show are all here. Please feel free to use any of them (and the show itself) however you please in service of deepening folks into Life in the Spirit.
