Kat Armas: Abuelita Faith

September 6, 2022

"What if the greatest theologians the world has ever known are those whom the world wouldn’t consider theologians at all?" — Kat Armas

Kat Armas chats with us about the navigating seminary, grieving over research, and discovering wisdom in unexpected places. 

Let me invite you into a conversation with Kat Armas, theologian and author of Abuelita Faith: What Women on the Margins Teach Us About Wisdom, Persistence and Strength. In her book, Kat builds a bridge between intellectualism and earthy wisdom as she considers the question, “What if the greatest theologians the world has ever known are those whom the world wouldn’t consider theologians at all?” Through an exploration of history, Scripture, and her own Cuban-American upbringing, Kat draws fresh insight into the rich wisdom that can be found in women who are often overlooked in theological conversations. In our discussion, Kat shares about her own personal spiritual journey, including the complexities of navigating seminary as a Cuban-American woman. Her encouragement to continue questioning the status quo and looking for wisdom in unexpected places is a breath of fresh air. Kat is fun and vivacious and full of stories, and I think you’ll really enjoy this episode.

So have a listen! We're so glad you're here.
