So often we hear about safe space—the promise of a judgement and harm-free environment. But is that even possible?Micky Scottbey Jones is calling us to a different practice—one where we can bravely risk mistakes, call each other to more truth and love, and co-create a space where we each have room to grow as activists while still being accountable to one another.In our conversation, she talks about how, if we want to work towards the abolition of systems of harm and oppression, we actually need to practice that with one another.Micky embodies what it is to walk the talk and live into her values; it is an invitation for all of us to hold the complexity of this work and be brave together.You can find Micky at faithmattersnetwork.orgFollow her on Instagram @electric_lady_msj, Twitter @iammickyjones, and Facebook @MSJspeaks.If this episode resonates with you, we’d love for you to take a screenshot and tag us on Instagram stories @ctznwell, @electric_lady_msj, and @kkellyyoga,-Join CTZNWELL on Patreon-Follow CTZNWELL on Instagram-Sign up for CTZNWELL’s weekly email WELLREAD and check out our other free content at ctznwell.org.

About 25% of our listeners are from outside the USA. Whether you live in the USA or not, you don’t need me to tell you that America is more divided than ever. We can chat and/or argue all day about why we are more divided than ever but we are not going to focus on those things today. What we are going to focus on is how can people that believe different things and value different things come together to find common ground around food and drink? Right after the inauguration in 2017, three groups came together to launch a project called #100Days100Dinners. Shortly after, this project turned into The People’s Supper. The People’s Supper aims to repair the breach in our interpersonal relationships across political, ideological, and identity differences, leading to more civil discourse. And, they plan to do it in the most nourishing way possible – over food and drinks! As we approach the midterm elections, you can get in on the action. Last weekend, they launched Midterm 5 — a series of suppers they are going to do for the the few weeks leading up there midterm elections. They are doing 5 large suppers in cities and town all over the USA. Even if you can’t make one of those, you can host your own! I’m hosting one this week in Nashville and I’ll report back to you during next week’s podcast. Visit their Midterm 5 page on their site to get more details for hosting your supper. Don’t delay! That’s all I’m going to tell you for now because I’m going to let my guests — Micky ScottBey Jones and Margaret Ernst — tell the rest. Micky is the Director of Resilience and Healing Initiative at Faith Matters Network and Margaret is the Program Manager at Faith Matters Network. They’re amazing. You’re going to love them. Follow Micky on Twitter and on her website. Follow The People’s Supper on Facebook and on their website. Follow Let’s Give A Damn on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter to keep up with all that is going on. We have so much planned for the coming months and we don’t want you to miss a thing!

Peace, Spirit, Forgiveness, Grace (That’ll Preach) with Micky ScottBey Jones #LectioCast
Acts 5:27-32 Copping just the right attitude—what’s needed for civil disobedience. Speaking truth to authority and walking in costly commitment to God. Psalm 150 The definitive Scriptural proof text in favor of the worship band! Revelation 1:4-8 A kaleidoscope of imagery describing both Christ and God. The future of God is God’s arrival for the sake of the world and God’s people. Jesus models what faithful saints are to be: the faithful witness and first of those risen from the dead. He doesn’t retreat to the “God part,” the prize at the end is Jesus (and ourselves) as more fully human. John 20:19-31 Jesus accepts the wounds of the violence he endured. The beauty of new life is so deep because of the wounds. Micky tries to get us to tone down the “doubting Thomas” shtick. And Daniel reminds us that if you don’t see the mark where the wounds have been then you don’t have the Jesus story straight, yet. Micky ScottBey Jones is a “contemplivist” leader and organizer who hosts & facilitates conferences, trainings and online conversations, writes & speaks on a variety of topics including self-care in community (healing justice), contemplative activism, intersectionality, race & justice & theology from the margins, and curates contemplative spaces/activities. Micky was recently named one of the Black Christian leaders changing the world in Huffington Post.

Isaiah 50:4-9a The prophet models the cost of faithfulness to God, a pattern Jesus fulfills in his own faithful suffering. We learn what it means to be a good teacher—starting with listening and waking up. Following God means that people don’t get to act as judge of what is disgraceful or who is worthy of condemnation in the end. Can we recognize strength in cruciform love? Psalm 31:9-16 This psalm opens us up to the reality that there’s more than what’s right in front of us, and there’s hope for God to carry us through and deliver us. Philippians 2:5-11 Realize that Jesus is human and everything changes. Here, we see what it’s like for even the human Jesus to use and let go of his privilege for our sake. The Jesus story gives tremendous meaning to our humanity as a whole and provides hope for us even as Jesus himself was exalted by God. And in the highlight of jrdk’s LectioCast career, Micky likens his theological move to what she has learned from indigenous and womanist theologians. Luke 22:14-23:56 The reading’s the thing, but we can’t stop ourselves talking about it, anyway. The disciples show their humanity, and Jesus invites them to be a better kind of human. The sword is weird, and Jesus doesn’t really have a Jewish trial. Luke’s atonement theology is captured in Jesus’s words from the cross.
