Info

Shalom Sistas

Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moore—a wifey, writer, entrepreneur, and mom who loves to talk Shalom with her favorite women, her Shalom Sistas. While Shalom is often thought of as another word for peace, it’s actually a deep and wide concept of the world as it should be— whole, flourishing, and vibrant. Being a Shalom Sista is as simple as seeing a need in the world and asking "how can I help?" Every episode, Osheta will introduce a Shalom Sista who asked that very question to share her story and give practical advice that will inspire and encourage women to be wholehearted and seek wholeness in the world right around her. We don’t’ get preachy here, but we do get personal, practical, and at times, a little playful!

Hey Sistas,

 Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I chat with my friends, Amber Hornsby and Rachel Hanus, co-founders of ESTHER homes, a beautiful transition home for single mamas and pregnant women. Y'all, I joined the board of ESTHER as the president last month and I have to tell you God has been leading me to this moment for YEARS. This episode means so much to me because when was 20, I was a junior in college and found myself in an unplanned pregnancy and if it were not for women like my guest today, I would have had an abortion and quite possibly lost my faith.  

 

2:  We have a Patreonto help pay for an editor and make sure episodes are released once a week.  The only way I can serve you here on the podcast is by delegating the editing/tech to someone else. Please consider supporting the podcast here. 

3:We need $100 more to start a contract with an editor.   This week’s thank you gift in Patreon is this cool resource I received from my friend, Shannan Martin who was episode #3. She wrote a four day Mother's Day campaign that you can sign up for for FREE and you'll get an email a day for four day. BUT  If you're a Patreon, you'll get all four days in one PDF called, "A New Way to Mother's Day" in your feed.

Hey Sistas,

 

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I answer questions from the “Shalom Sistas” community today:

  • Share about supper club?
  • What do you say to women who are forced to see and interact with their abuser or their rapist during church? What do you tell a woman who has to walk up to the alter next to a man who would rape her or who beat her because they share a child in common and our current legal system and family court is so incredibly broken that they refuse to protect her? I want to know, because no one will give me an answer. 
  •  How do we respond when looking back at great tragedies that were stopped by war, such as the Holocaust? Can you share some scripture that calls for nonviolence?
  • Do I still like the snow?
  • What do you mean when you say you are an Anabaptist?

I’m Rooting for You, Sistas!

Apr 6, 2018

Hey Sistas,

 

 

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: Jerusalem Greer and I have a much needed conversation on the difference between routines to get stuff done and rhythms that give us life.  We used Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG)  as our guide:

 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” 

 

 

2: We're praying for each other in the Shalom Sistas Hangout and Newsletter. Click the links to join and get your prayer on.

 

3: We have five questions we consider to create shalom in our schedules:

Is this a stress-inducing routine or a life-giving rhythm?

What will bring me into a resting heartbeat? 

What will bring wholeness? 

Does this rhythm reflect who God made me to be or who I think I should be? 

If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it 

If someone tries to challenge the decisions I make to support my rhythm, can I advocate for it 

 

 

 

Two Important Reminders:

 

1: We’re going weekly now, so make sure to leave your five star reviews so people can find the podcast every week. My favorite five star review came from Emmalouie21 :

1: Cara Meredith and I sat down to talk about “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeline L’engle.  We cover everything from our reading experiences as children, what Christian themes we had hoped to see in the movie, and why positive representation matters as we’re raising bi-racial children.

 Hey Sistas,

 

Today, I share all the things she's most excited about the return of the podcast for season 3.

 

Here are three things you need to know about today's episode.

 

1: I met with the Tuesday morning women’s small group at Slate Hill Mennonite church and we talked about my book “Shalom Sistas”. They were drinking my lemonade recipe during the call, which made my day. 

 

2: We're praying for each other in the Shalom Sistas Hangout and Newsletter. Click the links to join and get your prayer on.

 

3: The sound quality is a bit spotty here and there because we were talking over Skype and the phone, but it was still a wonderful conversation. We touch on everything from how to choose which manifesto point to work on, what to do about church conflict, what is our Anabaptist life hacks, and how to intervene when we see conflict out in public.

Today for “Enough” week I have on our favorite Justice Pirate: Victoria Tiedemann.

She tells us how she becomes a "Simple Minimalist" and how rejecting the allure of more, more, more has helped her live into our manifesto point: We are enough!

She also answers a question from a listener on seeking shalom through simplicity this holiday season:

After my pastor's sermon on Sunday on "Enough" and years of reading books of people who stopped buying things for a set time, I'm seriously flirting/committing myself to limiting purchases in the next year to experiences and necessities."

Victoria has me thinking that this holiday season I want to create experience gifts AND really fill my home with things I both use and LOVE.

It's a great episode and I can't wait to hear what you think:

Hey Sistas,

 

Thanks to my amazing publisher, today I'm reading the first chapter of "Shalom Sistas" for you.  So sit back, relax...wait! Who am I kidding? You're probably getting stuff done while you listen to podcasts, so I hope this chapter of the books makes you laughs, think, and make you feel like you're just chatting with a good friend while you work.

Have you grabbed you copy of Shalom Sistas yet?  Yesterday, it was shared as one of Sarah Bessey's favorite non-fiction book— yay! I'm so honored but more than that, I'm grateful for this amazing tribe of peacemakers who are reading and responding to the book.

Also, today I'm coming at you from a hotel room in Denver Colorado. Oh my goodness y'all, I'm in a room all by myself and it. Is. Magical.

Hey Hey Sistas, 

On today's episode I invited Meg Tietz back to the podcast to talk about the Myers-Briggs personality test and how it relates to our shalom practices.  In chapter 14, of "Shalom Sistas" I talk about the four types of friends who helped me get through a major tragedy which had me wondering if some personality types gravitate towards specific practices of Shalom. Well, my friend Meg thinks so and so she came on the show today to teach me how the sixteen types divide up into the four Shalom Sistas:

Sista Shiva

Sista Shock and Awe

Sista Safekeeper

Sista Shackle-Breaker

If you read my post called, "Sistas Squad Up: The Four Friends I Needed When My Son Was Called the N-Word" and loved it then you'll be thrilled at this new resource to help you determine your shalom practices based on the way God made you.

Hey Sistas!

 

Today is a COMMUNITY EPISODE!!! Which means you'll hear from all three the co-hosts on one topic AND meet some fellow Sistas who love the podcast. This week my first book, "Shalom Sistas" released and so for the fall season of the podcast, we're going to be going through the Shalom Sistas Manifesto. In this episode, we talk about the first four:

 

We are Invited

We are Beloved

We are Enough

We will see the Beauty

With Cara: We talk about Belovedness, a messy but welcoming home, and her new role on the podcast. ALL WHILE HOMEGIRL is SICK!  She's getting better now, but y'all her dedication to the podcast is so appreciated!

 

With Jerusalem: We talk about her wedding, body image, beauty, and savoring everything without shame.  And Ikea. Always Ikea with that one. 

 

With Abby: We talk about her Hurricane Harvey peacemaking fail then success, how Jared her husband is a saint (BTW I think all of our husband are saints because it's not easy being married to a Shalom Sista), and how we can find our identity a part from our output.

 

Every conversation was special and I hope you enjoy the episode.

Don't forget to leave a review on iTunes so that other peacemakers can find this podcast.

 

XOXO and Shalom,

O

Today, I'm checking in with my co-host Jerusalem Greer.  We took the summer off and now we're chatting about her favorite episode from the Hopeful Resistance Series, what her go-to shalom step for celebration and owning our belovedness and why it's super great when your car's radio breaks.

This is the first in a four part mini series of check ins this week. I think we all can agree with the past events in Charlottesville, we all need a good dose of hopeful resistance and so I pray these episodes inspire and encourage you, Sista.

 

Love,

O

On this episode of My Sistas' Keeper, Abby and I discuss how to hopefully resist the spirit of despair when talking about race, specifically on social media. We share our honest, raw emotions about the Philando Castile verdict and the killing of Charleena Lyles. We also discuss Scripture about despair and respond to listener questions about to respond to race-related tragedies and police brutality:

How should Shalom Sistas talk to their children, students, etc., about these events?

 

What should a Shalom Sista do if her church is silent in the face of injustice?

 

How can white Shalom Sistas be allies right now?

 

Is there a way for Shalom Sistas to engage with their local police departments to talk about racial profiling, etc.?

 

How can Shalom Sistas leverage whatever platform they have (blog, community office, leadership position, ministry, relationships) to shed light on these tragedies and say what needs to be said?

 

What are you longing to hear spoken or named--what do you think God is longing to hear spoken or named from pulpits?

Today I sit down with my co-host Jerusalem to talk about FOMO, Benedictine Monastic traditions, learning to love the life you have, and husband who are weary of our BIG ideas.  She just released her second book, “At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises” and it’s amazing.  Take a listen and come on over to the Shalom Sista Facebook page to tell us which of the three Benedictine Vows resonate most with you as you seek shalom in your home!

 

 

“At Home in this Life is the story of how everything I thought would make me happy came undone, and how I then found a way to make myself at home in this beautiful, messy, amazingly tender, completely unbalanced life, by imperfectly practicing one spiritual discipline at a time—smack in the middle of raising kids, mending the sweaters and burning the bread.  It’s the story of how I finally realized that the “problem” with my life was not my house, my job, or my marriage, my problem was me. Only a Conversion of life - a Transformation of spirit and heart - would help. So I jumped, with both feet, into an experiment where I tried to follow God’s leading instead of my plan, an experiment that resulted in a lot of fits and false starts, gut-level honesty and true change. Beautiful, messy, chaotic, daily… this is the story of how I learned to make myself at home in my life.”

 

Shalom Steps:

 

1: Choose a Benedictine Vow To Work On

2: Create Spaces to Listen

3: Curate Your Life

In episode 35 we're having the Shalom Book Club, where Cara and I discuss Anne Lamott’s latest book, Hallelujah Anyway.  We talk about what we mean when we speak or dream of mercy, and we look at differences between Lamott’s definition of mercy and a biblical definition of mercy. Finally, we get REAL with our own stories of mercy, and offer four Shalom Steps to help you rediscover mercy, too. As per the usual, you can connect with Cara on her blogFacebookTwitter anInstagram, and you can connect with Osheta on her blog, "Shalom in the City", Facebook, and you can see Osheta rocking lots of yellow on Instagram.

On this episode of My Sistas' Keeper, Abby and I discuss how to hopefully resist the spirit of defensiveness when talking about race, specifically on social media. We consider some practical ways to emulate Jesus' posture toward others described in 1 Peter 2:23, "When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly."

We also discuss the terms backfire effect and confirmation bias, and engage listener comments and questions such as how to know when to enter into an online conversation, when to just keep scrolling, and how to encourage offline extensions of online dialogu
