Dr. Monique Smith Gadson


Writer Sharifa Stevens joins the podcast today.

Sharifa shares her lived experiences as a Black woman in a predominantly white church environment. She openly and honestly shares her feelings when she anticipated "the church to show up" during times of societal unrest.

She discusses how she was "tired of showing up for church when it doesn’t show up for you."  Sharifa discusses her fears, anger, disappointments, and hope as a result of these experiences.

She encourages us with her resolute posture to "continue to show up for church even when it doesn’t show up for you."
