Welcome to Meet Me in the Middle! Thanks for joining the conversation. In part 2 of our intro episodes, we get to know co-host, Lindsay Pollard, as Joy probes into her story a little bit further. You’ll hear about the similarities (preacher’s kids, pastor’s wives, baby of the family, love to talk and laugh, passionate about advocating for the marginalized and under-resourced ) as well as the diversity (black & white, denominational differences, extremely different career paths our early adulthood, immigration in family of origin, east coast/west coast).
While unity in diversity is something many long for, “Meet Me in the Middle” is a step to bridge the gap from “longing for” to “living it out.” What better way to live it out than having two individuals come together who don’t look the same, don’t worship in the same way, didn’t experience the same upbringing or social circles yet love Jesus and love each other dearly. That’s unity in diversity. We may not agree theologically on everything or have experienced life from the same kitchen window’s perspective, but we have a blast talking it out and bringing others into the conversation to engage in healthy dialogue. Our prayer is that these conversations will give you a little different perspective on issues such as racial tension, immigration, poverty, homelessness, religious differences, the physically or mentally challenged, life-style choices and identity.
We welcome your voice to the conversation as we meet in the middle of it all.
