Encountering Silence and Contemplating Now
February 25, 2021
In today's episode of Encountering Silence, we visit co-host Cassidy Hall's new podcast, Contemplating Now: A Podcast Exploring the Intersection of Contemplation and Social Justice. Join us as we listen to wisdom from previous Encountering Silence guest, Therese Taylor-Stinson: spiritual director, author, and ordained deacon and elder in the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA).
In this very first Episode of Contemplating Now,
Cassidy Hall interviews previous guest of Encountering Silence, Therese Taylor-Stinson
in a conversation titled, "Everybody Can Be A Mystic."
“I think everybody can be a mystic… Mystic means you’re living with a certain amount of uncertainty.”
She is the founder of the Spiritual Directors of Color Network,
an international, ecumenical/interfaith association of persons of color with a ministry of spiritual accompaniment. A native of Washington DC, she now lives in Maryland. Her ministry, like her books, explores the intersection of contemplative spirituality and the ongoing struggle for social justice and the dismantling of racism.
“We can all be getting in some trouble if we aren’t going along with the status quo.”
