Lavish Hope is about finding inspiration during a time when there are so many challenges, especially for marginalized communities and peoples. On this podcast you’ll uncover the kernel of resilience, the mustard seed of faith, that helps you get back to leading faithfully.
Through our featured stories of resilience and overcoming, we hope you find a shared space where leaders can talk about the hard things. We hope you are shaped and transformed by the story. And most importantly, we hope you’re drawn into reflecting upon the narrative that is uniquely and wholly your own.
In this special episode of Lavish Hope, we focus on solidarity with the AAPI (Asian American & Pacific Islander) Community. Host Liz Testa is honored to be in conversation with Gerri Yoshida, a third-generation Japanese-American, NYC-based actress and church leader, who is passionate about dismantling racism in transformative ways. Over the past two years, God has called her to courageously use her voice and family stories to engage Asians and Non-Asians alike in deepening their understanding of the root issues and discovering opportunities for justice and healing. Gerri’s compelling, heartbreaking, and hopeful story offers an inside look at the power of forgiveness and living into God’s calling with courage and purpose at any stage of life.
