Shalom Y'all

Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moore, a wifey, writer, entrepreneur, and mom who loves to talk Shalom with her favorite women, her Shalom Sistas. While Shalom is often thought of as another word for peace, it’s actually a deep and wide concept of the world as it should be- whole, flourishing, and vibrant. Being a Shalom Sistah is as simple as seeing a need in the world and asking "how can I help?" Every episode Osheta will introduce a Shalom Sista who asked that question to share her story and give practical advice that will inspire and encourage women to be wholehearted and seek wholeness in the world right around her. We don’t’ get preachy but we do get personal, practical, and at times a little playful!

Shalom Book Club #7: Love Warrior

On the podcast today is the seventh edition of the “Shalom Book Club” where once a month, my friend Cara Meredith joins me to talk about a book.  Like I said in the first episode of this series this is partly to solve a very real problem I have- I simply can’t work in a book club in my week here in L.A.. This month we read the “Love Warrior" By Glennon Doyle Melton. Stats: 259 pages, 15 chapters + epilogue, prologue Author: Glennon is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Carry On, Warrior, and Love Warrior. She is also the founder of Momastery, an online community reaching millions of people each week, and creator and president of Together Rising—a non-profit organization that has raised over four million dollars for families around the world through its Love Flash Mobs, which have revolutionized online giving. Glennon is a sought-after public speaker and her work has been featured on the TODAY Show, The Talk, OWN, and NPR and in The New York Times, Ladies’ Home Journal, Glamour, Family Circle, Parents Magazine, Newsweek, Woman’s Day, and in other television and print outlets. Glennon lives in Florida with her family. Context: LOVE WARRIOR is about infidelity, betrayal and redemption. It’s about how our ideals of femininity and masculinity can make it impossible for a woman and a man to actually know each other. It’s about how to use crisis as a springboard to a truer identity and a better life. It’s about parenting our kids through pain. It’s about friendships that hurt and friendships that heal. It’s about faith that shackles women and faith that liberates women. It’s about how to finally find peace in your own damn skin. It's about shameless sex, God, food, drugs, porn and tenderness—and how the dirt and the divine are so often inseparable.   What We Talk About: Pain Body Image Vulnerability and leadership Appropriate vulnerability Other Books or Media discussed in the episode: Carry On Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy Beautiful Life By Glennon Momastery:  Glennon's amazing website Promised Links: All things Cara: Cara's Site: www.carameredith.com Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest Connect with Osheta: Shalom Sista Hangout Facebook Sign up for the Newsletter Warrioring On and Choosing Subversive Joy in my body, my friendships, and family, Osheta

Episode 04: Meet Shalom Sista Kathy Escobar

My guest on the podcast this week is Kathy Escobar.  Y'all. She is wise and funny and so, so thoughtful.  You're going to love everything she has to say about having hard conversations with people we disagree with and what peacemaking is (and is not). We both share a passion to take big concepts (like Shalom, like unity, like reconciliation, you know...so meta ;)) and making them practical so that we can actually live them out. She tells us about a recent video series she did with The Work of the People, "Different Not Divided: A Third Way" with her co-pastor, Karl Wheeler about how they've navigated living together in unity while still honoring their differences at their church, "The Refuge". From the "The Work of the People" website: When we love our theology more than our brothers and sisters we are usually left with only two options: 1. Create increasingly larger, theologically monolithic and homogeneous churches, or 2. Disintegrate, fracture and eventually close the doors and lose relationship with each other. For almost 10 years in The Refuge community, we have tried to practice a third option--a Third Way--where instead of fighting for our positions or fleeing for the safe haven of a group that looks, thinks, and believes like us--we live in the tension of our difference. We are different, not divided. And because practical application and providing awesome resources to the Body is something Kathy and I love to do, we've teamed up with Travis Reed over at "The Work of the People" to provide Shalom in the City listeners access to the videos and discussion guides. Normally you'd have to purchase these from the site, but we want to empower you, Shalom Sistas with this amazing resources to bring Shalom to your hard conversations and messy communities! Just make sure you're subscribed to the "Shalom in the City Newsletter" here: shalominthecity.com Shalom Steps: Every episode, I ask our Shalom Sista to give us 2-5 practical next steps to empower our Shalom practice in our everyday lives. Here's Kathy's: 1: Read the Beautitudes every day. 2: Practice Being Brave. 3:Show up. Tell the truth. Trust God. Let go of the outcome.  Perfect Day in her city: Denver: 1: Travel in her car. 2: Go to Snooze for brunch 3: Hang out at Standley lake with a cup of coffee from Global Goods. 4: Marvel at the mountains of Denver, they still surprise her after so many years in Colorado.

Episode 52: Creating Life-giving Rhythms Not Stress-Inducing Routines

Hey Sistas, Here are three things you need to know about today's episode. 1: Jerusalem Greer and I have a much needed conversation on the difference between routines to get stuff done and rhythms that give us life.  We used Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG)  as our guide:  “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”  2: We're praying for each other in the Shalom Sistas Hangout and Newsletter. Click the links to join and get your prayer on. 3: We have five questions we consider to create shalom in our schedules: Is this a stress-inducing routine or a life-giving rhythm? What will bring me into a resting heartbeat?  What will bring wholeness?  Does this rhythm reflect who God made me to be or who I think I should be?  If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it  If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it  Two Important Reminders: 1: We’re going weekly now, so make sure to leave your five star reviews so people can find the podcast every week.

Today, Cara and I talk about the Roadmap to Reconciliation written by Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil. We also share our candid responses to the question, "how are you doing?" in light of the election of a man who we both feel like has not modeled a heart or desire for racial justice in this country.

Episode 43: Shalom and Personalities

Hey Hey Sistas,  On today's episode I invited Meg Tietz back to the podcast to talk about the Myers-Briggs personality test and how it relates to our shalom practices.  In chapter 14, of "Shalom Sistas" I talk about the four types of friends who helped me get through a major tragedy which had me wondering if some personality types gravitate towards specific practices of Shalom. Well, my friend Meg thinks so and so she came on the show today to teach me how the sixteen types divide up into the four Shalom Sistas: Sista Shiva Sista Shock and Awe Sista Safekeeper Sista Shackle-Breaker If you read my post called, "Sistas Squad Up: The Four Friends I Needed When My Son Was Called the N-Word" and loved it then you'll be thrilled at this new resource to help you determine your shalom practices based on the way God made you.

Episode 16: Everyday Practices of Peace for the Homeless

I’m so thankful for my friend, Alice Colegrove. For nearly twenty years, Alice has worked on initiatives to help youth and young adults exit homelessness. She has worked on the issue of homelessness at nearly every level including local direct service, city and state policy initiatives, and national academic forums.  Locally, she has over fifteen years of direct service experience, including street outreach with homeless youth and young adults in Boston and Cambridge, MA, and she is an active member of the advisory board for the Y2Y youth shelter in Harvard Square. And today she came on the podcast to tell us her story and teach us about homelessness and what we can do to alleviate the suffering of so many people.  This episode was particularly special for me because of the make up of our church, we're so close to Skid Row and oftentimes I feel out of my depth. I know I want to help and I'm moved by the need every time I drive downtown, but I don't know where to being. Alice really spoke to those concerns and gave me the pep talk I need.  If you've been wondering where you fit in to God's story of shalom for those experiencing homelessness, I know this is an episode you'll love. I’m amazed at her story; as a young girl in D.C. she had a heart for persons experiencing homelessness.  I loved her person-centered language in “say this not that” segment and how she encouraged us to learn the names of the homeless we meet. I was so challenged by that! Alice empowered us with the Shalom Steps of: I also appreciated her thoughts on when you first start to volunteer at a homeless shelter that go along with Shalom Step #1: Instead of thinking about what you're doing, think about but you're seeing and let that guide you on what to do next. When I’m downtown L.A. I want to have courage and compassion to make eye contact and say hello. On this Episode We Walk About What a day in the life of a youth experiencing homelessness looks like. The answer to the question, “Should I give change to a homeless person” How she balances motherhood and ministry The biggest needs and challenges for homeless youth. It was a really important conversation for me, especially since I've been thinking about this putting together the homeless care packages from last episode with my kiddos, but didn't want to do it just to pat myself on the back, I wanted it to mean something.  With Alice's advice to "check my heart" and funnel my desire to help alleviate the suffering of those experiencing homelessness through the lens of Micah 6:8, I feel to energized to seek shalom of homeless youth and young adults. Shalom in your earbuds, Sistas! ~Osheta

Episode 14: Seeking Shalom for the Immigrant

My guest on the podcast this week is Sarah Quezada. Sarah and I write for some of the same places and so we've been cheering each other on on the interwebs, but I feel for her over chips and salsa when I was in Atlanta this past fall after the Allume conference. Sarah Quezada is the author of the blog, "A Life With Subtitles" where she writes about living a multicultural life in Atlanta, GA with her Guatemalan husband and two talkative kiddos! Today's episode is a follow up to my book club conversation with Cara Meredith on the book, "Esperanza Rising". Since so much of the book focuses on the struggle of the immigrant worker in California during the Depression Era and we see glimpses of the gaps in the  immigration policies in America, I thought it was important to bring on my friend to share her story of falling for an undocumented worker and EVERYTHING they've gone through to secure his citizenship. Check out  "Immigration Love Story"! It's a fantastic detailing of her love story with Billy in three parts. Her "Say This, Not That" section was fantastic and I'm so inspired by her Shalom Steps.   Resources Mentioned In The Show: "Christians at the Border: Immigration, the Church, and the Bible" M.

She put a picnic table in her front yard, painted it turquoise, and began inviting neighbors, friends, and even strangers, to hang out and do life together at The Turquoise Table. A new concept of hospitality unfolded in her neighborhood, and before long The Turquoise Table led to a movement of Front Yard People—ordinary people who long to create community right where they live.A gatherer at heart, Kristin brings people together for delicious food and stories at her table and online home www.kristinschell.com.

Episode 12: Celebrate Shalom!

Hey Sistas, Toady's episode is all about celebrating the ways you're practicing Shalom in your everyday lives.  I'm joined by my friend, Abby Perry and we share the ways we've seen Shalom in  the media this past month, we cheer on our listeners who shared their stories of Shalom, and we introduce our really fun #SummerofShalom Instagram Challenge! Abby is the writer behind the blog, "Joy Woven Deep".  She's a mom of two in College Station, Texas who loves Jesus, personality types, books, television, and movies! She kicks off the episode by sharing her primary practices of Shalom, is caring for her boys, supporting the foster care community by offering them date night childcare through the "childcare pantry", and leading a local cohort of "Be The Bridge to Racial Unity",  a community of people with a common goal to see healthy dialogue around the topic of race. Abby told us about, Runway of Dreams: Runway of Dreams is a nonprofit organization working with the fashion industry to adapt mainstream clothing for the differently-abled community. Partnering with top brands and retailers, Runway of Dreams works to integrate wearable technology and design modifications into clothing, making it adaptive and wearable for all. As a mom of a boy with special needs, this company is close to her heart. They just partnered with Tommy Hilfiger to create a stylish and fun line.  Check it out:   If you remember, I interviewed Margot Starbuck about her neuro-diverse community on the podcast. So this company is just ONE MORE WAY God is asking me to be more aware and passionate about differently-able persons. I was all kinds of tearful about a certain reunion duet from the Broadway musical "Wicked". The original stars of Wicked reunite for a new, stripped-down take on the show’s touching final duet as part of the “Out of Oz” series. We had LOTS of women share with us what Shalom looks like in their lives, so we had a good time celebrating two different, Sistas, Sarah Elizabeth Finch, Sabrina, and a special voice message from a listener named,  Jill. From Sarah Elizabeth: I'm practicing shalom by celebrating differences and unique perspectives with my "Marked By" series. It's something I believe in doing daily with my community group and "mom" friends. I love making people feel special for the things that distinguish them from others, and I hope that I keep making this a priority in my circles of influence. From Sabrina: This week I've been trying to just give where I can to offset the feelings of lack I've been wrestling with. So, I bought some Gatorade/saltines/soup to an employee out with the flu yesterday (she lives alone). When my favorite cashier rang me up at my local Shaw's and asked me for the 1 millionth time do you want to donate to Muscular Dystrophy today, I said YES. Darn she's good. When a client calls for someone else and that someone else is busy, I take it on myself. Abundance is everywhere and all around us, I'm breathing it in and saying yes this week. It feels so good And a sweet listener named Jill shared her inward practice of Shalom by attending therapy and then her outward practice of shalom that steamed from the recent death of her friend to domestic violence. How it's inspired her to think about that community and ask, "how can I help". If you or someone is suffering from domestic abuse, DON'T SUFFER ALONE. Please call the National Domestic Violence hotline: 1-800-799-7233 Abby and I are both on Instagram and WE LOVE IT!  So, I couldn't think of a better co-celebrator than Abby to introduce my #SummerofShalom Instagram challenge. Reserve your free hard copy of the print here and join us for a summer full of practice of Shalom. http://bit.ly/SummerofShalom Thanks for listening, Sistas! ~Osheta

Episode 59: So... I've started using the Female Pronoun for God

Today I chat with my friends, Tim and Mariann Reardon, pastors of Pasadena Mennonite about using the female pronoun for God, especially how thinking of God as Mother has healed some past hurts and helped us authentically connect with God.
