16. The One Where Sarah talks to Dave Harder and Bryce Dymond about Shifting Churches to Community Spaces

<p>There is no denying that 2020 has been the year of disruption- &nbsp;some much needed disruption. As systems of privilege are being called out through the work of Black Lives Matter and Covid 19 is teaching us that our health is tied to each other we are rethinking what community looks like and what leadership in that reality looking like. Something new is being born but we are in the liminal space- the question has become how do you make space for what could be while caring for what is?</p><p>This week I am excited to share with you my conversation with Dave Harder and Bryce Dymond two people asking that very question. Dave and Bryce help run a company called “parish properties” which defines its work as driven by concern for the environment, focused on the spiritual health of the community, financial sustainability, and social impact. They help churches think through how to develop their space in a way that is sustainable not just for church community but for the neighborhood they inhabit- this conversation could not be more timely as the idea of gentrification and colonization is rightfully at the forefront of conversation.&nbsp;</p><p>Check Out More about Parish Properties <a href="https://www.parish.properties/">https://www.parish.properties/</a></p><p>To see Images from this episode check out our Youtube channel <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrUKVyg6w4foRai_XsQmKbA/">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrUKVyg6w4foRai_XsQmKbA/</a></p><p>Episode Information&nbsp;</p><p>Introduction Music &nbsp;“it can be done” by Airae via epidemic sound.</p><p>Editing by Steven Burnette from <a href="https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-cult-popcast/id1496284954">The Cult Popcast</a></p>--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/makingspaces/message
