“We have so much that we want to share each episode about getting into the real practices, the theology, the mindset and how to help people do this work of liberation. For people do this work of liberation for people who are like, ‘Ok, give me a map – give me the how-to.’ We want to offer these practices that have helped us.” – Spring Washam
