PSIP Description: 
Associate Professor Willie Jennings suggests that connections should grow from shared spaces.
Long Description: 
When called upon to define who we are, not many think to mention our land and neighbors. But it wasn't always that way. Willie Jennings, Associate Professor of Theology and Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School, invites a return to the rootedness that communities used to enjoy. His book The Christian Imagination: Theology and the Origins of Race, suggests connections should grow from shared spaces--not shared attributes such as skin color and that Christians need to be modeling this. Karen Saupe hosts.
