#07: Randy Woodley - Embracing Ethnic Diversity, Learning from Indigenous Peoples
Randy Woodley & Graham Hill discuss embracing ethnic diversity & learning from Native American, First Nations, Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander, and Indigenous Christians. The GlobalChurch Project, podcast episode 7.
Randy Woodley is a descendent of the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. He and his wife Edith lead a local Native American gathering at their home. They’ve developed a holistic model of service among Native Americans, out of which grew a 50 acre sustainable farm and Christian community. In this community, the Woodleys taught sustainability, eco-justice, microeconomics, leadership, and mission. In 2008 they gave up their farm and were forced to disband the community due to violence from local White Supremacists.
Randy Woodley is a founding member of the North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies. He’s passionate about emerging faith expressions, diversity, eco-justice, reconciliation, mission, and Indigenous peoples.
