Out of the Ordinary 143

You can find everything about Drew here. Preorder his book wherever books are sold! Coming September 14th 2021! 

Key Conversation Points:

  • Jackson is a pastor in NYC and he uses his gifts to weave together the Gospels while painting words with lament and hope in the worlds of social justice, pop culture, theology and much more.
  • Jackson explores the first 8 chapters of Luke's Gospel with poetry in a unique and liberating way. He writes, "Enough of this unbelieving religion that masquerades as faith. Divine favor is placed on what we have disgraced."
  • Christie explains how poetry explores "feelings, ideas and experiences that are the most difficult to express in words."
  • There's deliverance in the Gospels. Jackson, with incredible brillance and depth, gives his gift of poetry to make a more whole, just and peaceful world for us all.
