As I’ve said on the show many times before, Dorothy Day is a huge inspiration of mine + was one of the catalysts that caused me to start this podcast. That’s one of the reasons I was so excited to have Shannon Evans on the show to talk about her experience working in Catholic Worker houses, a movement that was founded by Dorothy Day. But Shannon and I also dive deep into adoption, embracing our weaknesses, and what it means to truly operate as part of the larger body of Christ. Also, I loved her insight on her shifting view of “doing ministry”, specifically in the context of my own life. I share with her what I feel like God’s been saying to me lately and how it’s leaving me struggling to understand which direction He wants me to walk in. Overall, it was such a joy to chat with Shannon and I hope you enjoy our chat!
