Beautiful Brave Podcast Episode 8: Living with Intention, with Sosamma Samuel-Burnett
Happy New Year to our Voice of Courage community! As a team, we’ve long been dreaming of and planning for the year ahead. We have some exciting things in store to share with you in the weeks and months ahead!
Today, we’re excited to kick off the new year with a brand-new episode of the Beautiful Brave Podcast. In this interview, Sarah chats with an inspiring leader, Sosamma Samuel-Burnett, who is the founder and president of G.L.O.B.A.L. Justice, an advocacy organization that connects agencies who are addressing important justice concerns with institutions, such as universities and churches, for the purpose of greater collaboration, awareness, and informed action.
With great relevance for the new year, Sosamma shares with listeners some of the wisdom she’s gleaned through her unique life experiences, leaving us with questions that can help us intentionally choose how to plug into or unplug from commitments in this new year.
Sosamma also challenges us to move beyond passion into intellectual preparation and action to make a difference in the areas of justice needs and concern that cross our paths. Addressing the challenge of leadership in a highly virtual context, Sarah and Sosamma also explore together the important ways we can view and utilize social media for memory sharing, maintaining relationships, and encouraging civil discourse in a rapidly changing world.
We hope you’ll grab a pen and paper along with your favorite hot beverage so you can settle in and take some notes to help you plan the year ahead. Stick around for the end of the podcast when Sarah unpacks some of Sosamma’s key questions and pieces of advice for fellow leaders. Please comment below with what you have grabbed ahold of and plan to apply for greater focus in 2018.
