Stories of spirituality, culture, and identity from Latinx perspectives. This podcast is a project of Encuentros Latinx, an LGBTQ Latinx ministry in the United Church of Christ. New episodes each month on 1st Saturdays.

Today's guest is Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi. We have such a great conversation about biracial and biethnic experience, her work with the Colectivo de UCC Latinx Ministries, which is the umbrella collecting all Latinx ministries in the church, and toward the end we grapple with this question of what does it mean for UCC churches to be inclusive of Latinx people? It’s a nice, long episode for you this month!

Attention General Synod attendees! Be sure to check out BOTH Encuentros Latinx workshops: When Privilege Enters the Room and Decolonizing Faith.
