Episode 7

Navigating the intersection of our racial identity and spiritual formation

Renjy Abraham

In this Episode we have a heart to heart conversation with Renjy Abraham, the Dean of Spiritual Life and Cultural Integration at Multnomah University. Serving in the Diversity and Inclusive Development Department, Renjy is passionate about walking with BIPOC leaders as they discover their true selves. As an Indian American, born and raised in the Pacific NW, Renjy brings a unique skill set and view of collaboration with his 17-year career in multicultural leadership in Oregon. He talks with us about how he encourages young emerging leaders to be agents of change right where they are in Portland, and expanding that out to the world. We learn about the connection between spiritual formation and cultural identity and the dangers in keeping these two areas of development separate from one another. He also offers encouragement to our community who are committed to spirituality, justice, and wisdom in their leadership. Resource Mentioned: Mixed Feelings, Poems and Stories
