In this final episode of season 6 of Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community, we speak with Episcopalians committed to the Beloved Community about the texts for Easter Day. The texts covered in this episode are Jeremiah 31:1-6, John 20:1-18, and Matthew 28:1-10.
Our guests this week are the following:
- The Rev. Shug Goodlow, from the Diocese of Missouri. She is the assistant rector at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Ellisville and serves as the missioner for racial reconciliation and justice for the diocese. Shug is married to Doris and they have two daughters, Monica and Simone, as well as a granddaughter, Khloe.
- The wise Alan Murray, a member of Trinity Cathedral in Portland, Oregon. He is a Godly Play teacher, co-chair of the Asian/Pacific Islander caucus for the Deputies of Color and an ambassador for the Episcopal Public Policy Network. He lives in Portland with his husband, their 7-year-old daughter, and two goofy beagles.
- The Rev. Peggy Lo, rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas. She has been an organizer, translator, and nonprofit administrator. Peggy is a passionate community member and wants our listeners to know that there are great vegetarian options in Austin.

Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community
Across our church and our society, we are having profound dialogues about race, truth, justice, and healing. Coming this Advent, Prophetic Voices: Preaching and Teaching Beloved Community explores where that dialogue intersects with our faith. Join us and our invited guests as we share prophetic voices and explore the readings for each week of Advent and Christmas Day through the lens of social justice.
You’ll hear ancient texts interpreted in new ways, find fodder for preaching and teaching, and make present day connections to the prophetic voices of the Bible. This podcast will help us rethink how we hear, see, and interact with the lectionary readings.

Church of the Redeemer
Welcome to Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
