Holding it(,) Together podcast features people living and working out their faith

3.12. 2018 Written By: The Mennonite/Mennonite Church USA

“Too often in the context of faith and lived experience, the stories we tell are stories of overcoming, of success,” said Jenny Castro, coordinator of Mennonite Church USA’s Women in Leadership Project, in the first episode of Holding it(,) Together, a new podcast created in partnership with The Mennonite, Inc. Listen here:

All episodes will be available on the Holding it(,) Together Podcast page and via Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and Fireside. New episodes will be added every three weeks.

“Our podcast is about people in process,” said Castro. “Whole people, authentic people who need others to hold it, [all that they carry] together with them, recognizing that so many of us, in our day to day lives, are really just barely holding it together.”

The Holding it(,) Together podcast will highlight stories and interviews with people living and working out their faith in diverse contexts across Mennonite Church USA. Holding it(,) Together will explore themes like women in leadership, breaking silences, family systems and healthy sexuality. Themes will change quarterly, with about four to five episodes focused on one theme. The first series theme, women in leadership, will feature Iris de León-Hartshorn, Michelle Armster, Shirley Showalter, Sue Park-Hur and Alison Brookins, among others.
