In this episode of Imagine with Me, General Minister and President, Rev. Terri Hord Owens speaks with Rev. Yolanda Norton. Rev. Norton is the Visiting Professor of Hebrew Bible at Moravian University and the founder of Beyonce Mass. In this conversation they explore four Biblical models of prophetic leadership and how these models can inform our imagination for ministry.
“That is not just about you being always a person who says, what we have isn’t working. You have to energize the people about what God can do as an alternative to what they see in front of them. So that for me is really important, because we see a lot of people who are really good at tearing things down. Look, it’s really easy to say the church’s racist. It’s really easy to say the Disciples are caught up in white supremacy and it’s not that we don’t believe those things are true. But what are you doing and saying within your intimate spaces, that offer a vision of how God can and will move in those spaces differently?” -Rev. Yolanda Norton
