#85: Young, Black & Gifted in the ELCA, w/Lenny Duncan

Lenny Duncan (he/him) is a follower of Jesus Christ and is in a passionate love affair with Grace. March 2018 he was issued a call to serve the people of Jehu's Table from the Metro New York Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as a mission developer (church planter.) He is also a frequent voice on the intersection of the Church and the cries of the oppressed. He pays special attention to Black Liberation movements in his work, and lifts up the frequent intersection with other marginalized peoples. He believes that the reason the ELCA has remained so white is a theological problem, not a sociological one. He holds a Master of Divinity from United Lutheran Seminary. His upcoming book is called "Dear Church: A Love Letter to the Whitest Denomination in the US" comes out July 22.
