LTD Podcast E36: Bishop T.D. Jakes and Pastor Carl Lentz on Racism in America (Part 1)
Protests have exploded across the United States after George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was filmed falling unconscious during an arrest by a group of Minnesota police officers. One officer, who has now been charged with murder, held Floyd face-down to the ground, pushing his knee into his neck for over eight minutes before Floyd lost consciousness and later died. Pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong NYC has hosted a powerful conversation with Bishop T.D. Jakes following the death of George Floyd. This is an insightful interview with Bishop T.D. Jakes and Pastor Carl Lentz on the topic of racism and racial justice during the Hillsong NYC services. Bishop T.D. Jakes shares his very personal thoughts and reactions to the George Floyd events and offers a prayer for all of us in these troubled times.
T.D. Jakes has a willingness to disrupt the status quo and is one of the most globally-recognized influencers in business, education, film, and entertainment. With his earnest approach, Bishop Jakes has been able to reach millions of people from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races, nationalities, and creeds. The senior pastor of The Potter’s House, a global humanitarian organization and 30,000-member church, Bishop Jakes’ presence spans digital media, film, television, radio, and books, including his most recent book, “Crushing: God Turns Pressure into Power.”
