HUMP#011: Rev. Brent Wright “Ministry to People in the Margin”

Rev. Brent Wrigth

Rev. Brent Wright

In Episode 011 of the Hoosier United Methodist Podcast Dr. Brad Miller has a fascinating discussion with, an advocate for people in the margins of society, Rev. Brent Wright, pastor of the Broad Ripple United Methodist Church in Indianapolis.  Brent has made his voice known as advocate for people in the LGBT community.  This has taken the form of writing articles in blogs and publications supporting the rights of same gender couples to marry and taking a stand in opposition to the efforts of some Indiana legislators and the Governor to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) which he contended would have given license for discrimination against LGBT folks.  Wright talks with Brad about modeling his actions after how Jesus related to people in the margins of society.  In particular Brent speaks to the power of developing personal relationships in relating to the local church and the community on this issue and how to approach sensitive issues in the local church.  Indeed, one of the highlights of the conversation is a story about one man named Roger for whom the church touched deeply through a personal approach.  Brent also speaks about life and ministry in an eclectic community like Broad Ripple and his unique spiritual discipline of flying.  Go to the show notes at www.hoosierunitedmethodist.com for more details and links to Brent Wright’s writing.

Rev. Charles Harrison

Rev. Charles Harrison

In Episode 010 of the Hoosier United Methodist Podcast, Dr. Brad Miller speaks with Rev. Charles Harrison, Sr. Pastor of The Barnes United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Rev. Harrison has been pastor of Barnes UMC for 22 years, which is located in an urban neighborhood with one of the highest violent crime rates in the country.  Under Rev. Harrison’s leadership Barnes UMC has responded to the violence by organizing with other neighborhood churches into an organization called the “10 Point Coalition” whose primary focus is saving neighborhood young people from violence.  Rev. Harrison speaks about the faith teams sent by the 10 Point Coalition into the streets of the neighborhoods to build positive relationships with people, police and community leaders based on prayer and building trusting relationships.  Rev. Harrison tells a poignant story of the faith teams responding to a scene of a violent death, where through the power of prayer and peaceful presence the church “stood in the gap” of a combustible situation between angry crowds and the police leading to a spiritual experience for all involved.  Brad also asks Rev. Harrison about the discerning process he went through when considering a run for the office of Mayor of Indianapolis.  Rev. Harrison goes on to offer helpful encouragement to local church pastors and leaders looking to get involved with responding to the needs of their community.
