Wondering what it would be like to have a woman deacon at your Catholic parish? One who has a day job as a medical doctor? Let’s daydream together while we listen to Lydia Tinajero Deck. This is On a Mission – Episode 16!

Episode 28: Episode 28: Raising Kids for a Just World with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann On a Mission

Today I’m talking with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann. She’s an author and activist I’ve admired for a long time, and I’m so happy to share her with you. Her latest book, The Sandbox Revolution, is a collection of essays from parent-activists around the U.S. It offers advice for raising children committed to social justice in the world today. Lydia offers beautiful forwards to each section of the book. When she’s not writing books, Lydia is the editor of Geez magazine, a paper-only publication that comes to your door four times a year with inspiration for living life more simply and justly. She also curates and edits the blog Radical Discipleship. You’ll love her spirituality of resistance. Listen in to our conversation about the value of print magazines, the challenge and blessing of raising kids in 2021, and how to manage when your kids *don’t* want to engage in activism…. enjoy!Links we chatted about in the episode:Radical DiscipleshipThe Sandbox Revolution: Raising Kids for a Just WorldGeez magazineJoanna Macy, Buddhist scholarJennifer Harvey’s Raising White KidsSupport the podcast: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/molleen
