“Activism is the outworking of love and faith. It is the reason why we do what we do. And it is the source that allows us to be able to do it.... I cannot separate that from the work and the call and the mission that I have.” — Donna Barber
Listen in as WAP associate Caroline Triscik interviews educator and youth advocate, Donna Barber. In this conversation Donna shares how she clings to Jesus in the midst of pursuing justice and the way this spilled over into her book Bread for the Resistance: 40 Devotions for Justice People. In sharing her own journey in justice work, Donna guides us back to Christ as the source of hope.
As an unexpected benefit of hosting our podcast for the past 18 months, I find myself receiving books in the mail on a somewhat regular basis written by potential guests for the podcast. With stacks of books around me, Donna Barber’s Bread for the Resistance certainly stood out amongst the others by virtue of its colorful cover and intriguing subject matter. As I skimmed through the author bio, I was immediately drawn in by Donna’s experience as a justice worker and wanted to know more of her story. I am grateful that Donna took the time to share with us a glimpse into her life, giving us insight into how she keeps her commitment to Jesus and her calling and how she finds hope in the truth and resurrection of Christ.
