“We need both action and contemplation to have a whole spiritual journey. It doesn’t matter which comes first; action may lead you to contemplation and contemplation may lead you to action.”

In the next two episodes, we will talk with two women about how action and contemplation work together for holistic Christian formation.

 

In today’s episode, activist Kathy Khang talks about action and her latest book Raise your Voice: Why we Stay Silent and How to Speak Up! Kathy and I talk about why our voices matter, the cost of raising our voices, and the dangers of assimilation.

 

Raising your voice has a different cost for women and for women of color. - Kathy Khang
