DC Talk kicks off our second conversation about Our God is Undocumented, with their brilliant song "Colored People". After spending some time reflecting on our memories of youth group and DC Talk, Ben and I delve into the first two chapters: (1) Cultural Diversity and Deep Social Ecology and (2) Journey to the Margins: Delle McCormick.
In this episode we talk about two well-known biblical stories: the Tower of Babel and Pentecost. And then, we'll hold up the themes from those texts along with the story of Delle McCormick's life. Finally, we wrap up the conversation by turning our attention toward you (and/or us).
Who are we (individually or collectively)? Who is God calling us to be? Where is God calling us to be? And how are we (individually or collectively) pushed and pulled by the centrifugal and centripetal forces of empire and Spirit?

On the day of Tom Petty's death, Ben and I recorded this podcast episode, which begins with his song, "Refugee." We didn't know that he'd had a heart attack; but his was the first "immigrant" song that came to mind. You'll hear us mention that in our opening comments on the episode. RIP Tom, thanks for helping us kick this off with your amazing music.
In this introductory podcast about the book, Our God is Undocumented, we discuss the authors and the major questions that the book calls us to reflect upon. How does the Bible speak to issues of immigration and boundless welcome? How is God Undocumented? What does it mean to be a church without borders?
