I learned SO MUCH from my Ugandan friends over the last 2 weeks.

I learned that THEY are really good at knowing what THEY need.

I learned that asking what they need is more important than telling them what they need.

I learned that serving them as a Christian IS NOT the same thing as colonizing their land as a Christian.

I learned tons about the history of Christianity and its African roots.

I learned that Ugandans don’t need Americans to “rescue” them.

I learned that it’s important to have these conversations…

So in today’s episode, I spend some time unpacking these thoughts the first 1/2 of the show, and then the second 1/2 I interview the producer of the new documentary “Unspoken” - An in-depth look into the Christian heritage of Africa and people of African descent, intended to dispel the notion of Christianity being an exclusively white man’s religion.

It is SUCH A GOOD DOCUMENTARY.
