Like Micah brings you stories about the intersection of Progressive Christianity, social justice, and lived experience. Our name comes from the call of the Hebrew prophet Micah to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly” as people of God. We are a podcast of Downtown Disciples, a progressive faith community in downtown, Des Moines, Iowa. Our community invites those of you who have been hurt by the church, struggle with the church, still hold out hope for the church, or have no experience with the church at all, to share in our journey of questioning, loving, and seeking wholeness in a fragmented world. We are LGBTQ affirming and we proclaim #BlackLivesMatter.
