“What is Radical Welcome?”
with Abdurrahman Sykes
Radical welcome is said to be, first and foremost, a spiritual practice. Radical welcome combines a ministry of welcome and hospitality with a faithful commitment to doing the theological, spiritual, and systemic work to eliminate historical, systemic barriers that limit the genuine embrace of groups generally marginalized and disempowered in mainline churches (x-felons, young adults, the aging, the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, LGBTQ+ people, people of color, people with disabilities, etc.). Radical welcome is about taking the kernel of this and making it about all/everyone. Abdurrahman Sykes shares his thoughts on this necessary work.
