Benders of the Arc is a new podcast about adventures in bending the arc of social justice, presented by San Jose Presbytery’s Peacemaking Advocate, Rev. Geoff Browning, who is also a parish associate at FPCPA.
In the episode What Accompaniment Looks Like, he interviews Holly Brady of First Presbyterian Church of Palo Alto and Nicholas Hurley of Stone Church of Willow Glen in San Jose. Both of these congregations have begun accompanying immigrant families, one with the father in detention and the other with the father seeking asylum. Accompaniment, according to our guests, is hard but rewarding work.
