Y'all OK Podcast Episode 10

July 5, 2017

As a public speaker, I've been asked to give an invocation at various points - mostly in church, big holiday lunches and here and there at a few civic functions. Hell, I was the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in high school and my freshman year of college and so invoking the blessing of God and particularly Jesus (The Christ) was just part of my existence and I never really subjected it to much scrutiny as a white dude from Oklahoma. I still pray sometimes and try to participate in public prayer but I wrestle a bit more with it. I wrestle with my own words or the words that someone else is praying so that I may be able to confidently cosign on the amen at the end of they prayer. I was sure that anyone with doubt feels the same feelings but it hit me like a ton of bricks to hear Rabbi Vered Harris say it much better than I could.In Episode 10 of the Y'all OK Podcast, I get to talk with Rabbi Harris about Cultural Identity, Religious Identity, Education, Oklahoma and whole host of interesting life giving topics. I really enjoyed my time with her and I'm sure you will too.
