Manage episode 292453625 series 2925654
In this episode of The Future Is Here Podcast, we are bringing into focus our #pursuethemillion campaign. So we invited a talented and inspirational individual who decided to leave the Church, not once but twice. Her name is Alma Lizzette Cardenas-Rodriguez and her ever-evolving story must be heard.
Alma is a Mexican-American-born author and poet, raised in the San Fernando Valley. Alma holds a Master of Arts in Transformational Urban Leadership from Azusa Pacific University, an Urban Youth Workers Certificate from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor in Christian Ministry from Facultad de Teología. She is also the author of a book titled “Groanings from the Desert.” This book "holds a collection of English & Spanish teo-poemas, prayers, and thoughts that invite you into her pain, joy, hopes, and dreams."
Listen to why Alma left the church, and how she developed a counter-cultural response to her experience of navigating toxic mindsets and systems of her faith community and culture.
This episode will bring life, truth, healing, and freedom!
