Summary

Today we’re excited to share a conversation we had with some folks from Decolonize Lutheranism. What started as an internet meme in response to jokes about Sven and Ole and Lutherans eating Jell-O has shifted into a movement advocating an expansive Lutheran tradition that includes and values the contributions of Lutherans from all cultural backgrounds and identities.

If our faith communities are to be places of healing and of growth together, then we need to do better to provide space for other voices and hear from those who have been left out and cast aside. It’s important to step out of the way and let others share, speak, and lead whose voices have been silenced and marginalized - to hear the ways God has been working in their lives and their communities. We have a lot to learn, and a lot of work to do.

What is Sandbox Cooperative Podcast?

In an often contentious, fractured society, Sandbox Cooperative seeks to build an extended community of listeners; knocking down walls of division with curiosity and conversation. Twice a month we explore topics that people are actually talking about, considering them through a lens of spirituality, humor and discovery. You’ll discover a permission giving platform to explore new ideas with an ever-growing perspective of our world, and as the hosts regularly say, “there is always more room in the Sandbox.”
