Laura Flanders Show

Season 2, Episode 36 of 52

It's that time of year when we all need resilience: elections, holidays, the change of seasons. Many of us need fortitude to get through. Reverend Dr. Jacqui Lewis would add that we need Fierce Love too. Reverend Jacqui is senior minister of Middle Collegiate Church in Manhattan's East Village. A year ago, the building burnt to the ground, but the story didn't stop there. In this far-ranging conversation, Laura and Rev. Jacqui talk about mutual aid, colonial baggage, and the Reverend's new book, Fierce Love: A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness that Can Heal the World. Rev. Jacqui also shares what it took for her to emerge from a "bad touch" experience -- and how truth helps us move from fear to power in our relationship with ourselves, one another, and to making justice in the world. Guests: Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Author, Fierce Love: A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage & Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World.
