Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moorea 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, its 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 dont get preachy here, but we do get personal, practical, and at times, a little playful!

    Hey Friends, Here are the seven last words of Jesus we discuss today. Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. Truly, I say unto you, today you will be with me in paradise. Woman, behold thy son. (Says to disciple) Behold thy mother. My God, My God, why have you forsaken me? I thirst. It is finished. Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit.   Big thank you to OK Factor for use of their song, Uncharted. Go grab it on Bandcamp. It's Gorgeous.

    Day 5: Dear White Peacemakers

    07/10/2018 Duración: 29min

    Today I write about this letter I wrote on Instagram (@oshetam)     Dear White Peacemakers, ⠀ ⠀ Let’s sit and have an honest heart-to-heart.⠀ ⠀ As we are stepping up and resisting the injustices of this world, will you commit to being mindful of one thing: you are opting in to an awareness of justice issues- for many people of color we've lived our whole lives navigating systemic brokenness. Brown and Black lives have been lost seeking this shalom, so approach justice efforts with some humility, please. ⠀ ⠀ If the words and works of resistance from leaders of color inspire you to speak truth to power- give credit where credit is due because their voice was the first to hold the powers accountable. You are joining in their chorus. Know your part. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ If their art moves you to create flourishing for those in need- learn the choreography of shalom by getting in step with the community from which that art was born- learn from them, listen to them, move with them- you are a student in *their* Master Class.⠀ ⠀ ⠀

    Day 2 of 31 Days Everyday Peacemaking

    03/10/2018 Duración: 16min

    Hey Sistas,  Today I start the episode with a peacemaking strategy because my son missed the bus. Then, I share our Peacemaker's Pledge from my book trailer. It's the anchor of our series and what I'll refer to often.   We are a sisterhood of everyday peacemakers. We believe that shalom is more than an ancient concept. It’s God's dream for the world as it should be: nothing missing, nothing broken, everything made whole. Shalom is the breadth, depth, climate, and culture of the kingdom God. And we seek to live it out in our lives in small, but important ways: - Doing laundry for a single mom - Listening to a hurting child Or spending time with an elderly neighbor We know that peacemaking happens in the ordinary. These everyday practices of peace are brilliant flickers of light that drive away the darkness. We reject the notion that peacemakers are only quiet and gentle, meek and mild. In fact, some of us are quite sassy, and some of us are quirky. While we all love Jesus, some of us snark a little too. We

In the second half of the show Marla flips the tables and asks me some of her burning questions like my decision to start using the female pronoun for G
