Peace Talks is honored to welcome Linda Royster and Dan Allender to the show! Our wide-ranging conversation covered trauma as alienation from self, racism as a projection of unhealed wounds, epigentics as legacy and so much more. Don't miss this tender and thoughtful hour.

Linda holds a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology Graduate School and is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor who works therapeutically with a diverse clientele.

About the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace:
Justice and peace come from the inside out—from the overflow of a transformed heart. This belief led our founder, Bishop Todd Hunter, to start the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace in 2021. The Center brings together a diverse, interdenominational community of people who want to be formed in love to heal a broken world. Because “religion” is often part of the problem, we’ve created a brave, Jesus-centered space for dialogue, questioning, creating and exploration. PEACE TALKS introduces you to women and men who are working to undo oppression, leading to lives of deeper peace for all.
