Restoration vs. Retribution: A Conversation with Our Friend Mako



Tune in to this episode with our longtime friend Mako Nagasawa, our first return guest and one of the authors of our Lazarus at the Gate curriculum. Mako shares one of the major themes of his life - Christian restorative justice; while also exploring the true reasoning of Jesus’ death by reflecting upon Romans 6:1-13. Additionally, Mako about his faith and Christian worldview given the impact of his culture and personality type. Restorative justice he says is not only relevant to the criminal justice system, but also to ecology and the environment, economic and financial relationships. Stick around to the end to hear ways our community can engage with all Mako is doing, resources and offerings provided by Anastasis Center from the theology of Black Panther to the Reconstruction of Christian Theology. Their website is also a great place to stay up to date with new happenings, donate to continue the work, and subscribe to their monthly newsletter.
