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!

Three things you need to know about today’s episode:

1: I sit down with my new friend Claire Swinarski, the host of “The Catholic Feminist” to talk about her favorite saints and how they empower her to be a peacemaker.  She shares with us what it means to be both Catholic and a Feminist.

3: Then we end the show with what is giving us peace right now.

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!

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 :
