Episode Notes

Debo Dykes and Ann Phelps host a roundtable discussion with guests Rev. Dr. Jason Coker, field coordinator for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Mississippi and David Dykes, Executive Director of Faith And Reason, about the beginnings of our faith formed by family and the image and language of God created for and by white men.

We discuss the patriarchal language of God, ownership of God’s image, and the ways in which those perceptions, often fiercely and systemically protected, color our moral and political views. Critical work comes in remembering that Christians’ commitment to progress should prioritize justice for anyone on the margins of society.
