Have you ever read a book and then wished you could sit down with the author and ask a few questions? Welcome to the Sarah Quezada Live Show! This fall, I have been interviewing some favorite writers, leaders, and thinkers on topics like the Bible, immigration, refugees, friendship, neighboring, missions, and more. We’ve been meeting on Facebook Live, so viewers also have the chance to ask questions and engage with these incredible writers.
In case you missed the live conversations, this page is hosting all the videos from the Season 1. Want a Season 2? Let me know what guests you’d love to hear from!
Live Show Intro
Episode 1: Karen Gonzalez
Karen is a friend and fellow Herald author. (She is the amazing writer behind the Love Undocumented Discussion Guide!) Her book, The God Who Sees: Immigrants, the Bible, and the Journey To Belong releases in May 2019. She brings so much wisdom and personal connection to this important topic.
Episode 2: Shawn Smucker
I couldn’t put down Shawn’s book Once We Were Strangers: What Friendship with a Syrian Refugee Taught Me about Loving My Neighbor. It is a such a relateable and beautiful picture of what simple relationship can unlock across society’s divides. I loved talking with him about the behind-the-scenes of this incredible book.
Episode 3: Jen Chi Lee
"What does it mean to be a woman of color in mission? Who are the women of color who labor for peace and justice in our world?" Jen Chi Lee is my friend and a contributor to Voices Rising: Women of Color Finding & Restoring Hope in the City. She joined us from South Africa to talk about her experiences as a woman of color in mission!
Episode 4: Shannan Martin
Shannan Martin, author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God's Goodness Around You and Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted talks about how to react when injustice and society seem overwhelming, self-care, and the sticking around at church.
Episode 5: Dorcas Cheng-Tozun
Making a difference in the world while staying married? The struggle is real. Dorcas Cheng-Tozun has lived it from the inside out with her entrepreneur husband, and she authored the book Start, Love, Repeat: How to Stay in Love with Your Entrepreneur in a Crazy Start-up World. Her family is currently living in Kenya, and we're chatting about marriage, following your passions, and cross-cultural living.
