Season 7, Episode 2: Navigating Christian Ethics in a Complex World


The Ignite Institute welcomes back education and community advocate and Pacific School of Religion grad student, Maurice King (aka Mo) to host Season 7 of Change Happens Now! Join Mo as he evolves conversations with dynamic leaders beyond the change happening in their communities of care, and asks them to address the challenges they encounter, resources they find helpful, and hopes that they have for those they lead.

Join us in this enlightening episode as our host, Mo King, delves into the intricate landscape of Christian ethics with esteemed scholars Dr. Traci West and Dr. Lisa Asedillo. Dr. West is an author and Professor of Christian Ethics and African American Studies at Drew University Theological School.

She shares her passion for nurturing spiritually rooted leaders at PSR, emphasizing the importance of teaching methods and facilitating deep conversations in the classroom. Together, they explore critical topics such as religion, activism, ethics, and community leadership. We hear about the value of creativity and spirituality in navigating challenges, the need for solidarity and mutuality in liberation movements, and the importance of centering anti-racist perspectives in theology and ethics. Tune in as these scholars explore how faith transforms into tangible action and illuminates the path toward ethical living and social justice in today’s world.
