I caught up with Rev. Bri-Anne Swan, founder of Resistance Church, minister at Jubilee United Church, and singer / songwriter. She has a heart for all those who have been told they do not belong (check out Rev. Bri-Anne's full bio here). 

Resistance Church is a justice-focused, online ministry of Jubilee that reaches out to those for whom traditional church models are not always relevant or accessible. 

Throughout our conversation we delved into:

- Her own spiritual journey and relationship with Christ, along with the unique way church functined for her growing up - not as a place you went to on Sunday, but as a community. 

- How reading scriptures introduced her to an expansive relationship with Christ - particularly sititng with the books of Isaiah and Mark. 

- The ongoing work, mission and offerings of Resistance Church, rooted in "rest, hope and  community. Subversive faith & radical love in response to extraordinary times." 

- Why we should stop trying to make God into our own image and conform to our national ideals. 

- Her friendship with death row inmtate Ramiro Gonzales (she also now serves as his  spiritual advisor), and the ongoing work of forgiveness and beloved community.
