"I Went There To Pray": On Charismania & The Cost of Belonging w/ Karla Mendoza
Karla talks about knowing the Holy Spirit from a young age, and the ways that relationship was complicated and eventually strengthened by her time in charismatic ministry spaces. As a afro-peruvian woman living undocumented in the states, she offers a unique perspective on the ways that the leaven of whiteness obscures and obstructs our ability to feel any real sense of belonging in these types of ministry spaces. Life After Leaven is a podcast where guests from various faiths and backgrounds share their perspectives, anecdotes, and insight regarding how to move forward after leaving toxic faith and religion. We’ll be asking the tough questions and finding creative solutions to complex cultural issues. With a mix of serious discourse and witty banter, join us for a thought-provoking examination of how we can rebuild an unleavened faith together. NOTE: Not every viewpoint or position held or expressed on this show is that of the host or sponsoring organization. It is our position, however, that once you see God, you cannot unsee them, and that makes conversations with everyone about anything an opportunity to see Christ.
