In this episode we talk with Pastor and Author Aurelia Dávilia Pratt about her new book published this year, Brown Girl Epiphany. Aurelia is the founder and lead pastor of Peace of Christ Church, a sacred community in the heart of central Texas doing the work of radical love and disruptive peacemaking. We spend time considering the Magnificat as a song of justice and how we might embrace and embody the imago dei this Advent season.

Rev. Aurelia Dávila Pratt is a pastor, writer, paradigm-shifter, and sacred spacemaker.  She was named by Sojourners as one of the Top 10 Christian Women Shaping the Church in 2022. She is an imago-dei enthusiast who finds real joy in helping people live into the fullness of their God-given divine image. She is the author of A Brown Girl’s Epiphany: Reclaim Your Intuition and Step into Your Power
