Shalom in the City

Shalom in the City 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!

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

 

What Mr. Roger’s can teach us about peacemaking in our communities when we feel divided.

 

Today we’re going to use neighborliness to practice hopeful resistance in the face of division. Wanna know what that means? It’s a really great episode and I hope you take a listen:



 

 

Three Lessons of Neighborliness from Mr. Rogers

Welcoming - Assuming a posture of neighborliness

  • Mr. Roger’s did this when he changed from his “work” clothes to his comfy clothes. How do we create body language that is comfy, welcoming, neighborly
  • Remember Nathan’s habit of greeting people by name
  • Shalom in the home - music on, sitting on the couch - no phone or book,



Learning - Going into community to learn about those in the community.

  • Mr. Roger’s always went to into the community to learn about peoples work
  • Frequent small businesses especially ones that might be off your regular radar
  • Ask questions
  • Volunteer
  • Shalom in the Home - teach kids to ask questions instead of making assumptions

 

Land of Make Believe

  • Mr. Roger’s used the Land of Make Believe to teach understanding
  • Storytelling is so important - read, watch movies, go to plays, listen to music that are outside your norm
  • Do these things with your kids - watch travel shows, children’s books about other cultures, eat in restaurants where you are the minority
