Ep 61 of the New Leaf Project is here!

In this episode, we present part two of a conversation with Jared, Pastor Keitha Ogbogu and Rev. Dr. Lennet J. Anderson. In this conversation Lennett talks to Jared and Keitha about the present reality of black Nova Scotians and the racial dynamics that have an impact from childhood to old age. Lennett also shares how the church’s response to a particular case of corporate racial profiling ended with a way forward.

Lennett Anderson is the Senior Pastor of EBC: The MEETing Place, Upper Hammonds Plains, NS. Named by MacLean’s Magazine as “one of five Canadian Pastors who are breathing new life into their communities,” he has been identified as a source of inspiration and encouragement to many. Since returning to his home church in 1999 Pastor Anderson’s leadership has led to the formation of a blended community of worshippers who meet to exemplify unity within the Body of Christ. Keitha is the lead pastor at Hampton Free Methodist Church in Saskatoon, SK. Born and raised in Ontario she found her way to Saskatoon in 2009 and hasn’t looked back since. Her pastoral work has affirmed her love for the nations, her pursuit of justice and, of course, her call to preach.
