Creativity, Spirituality, and the Farmworker Community | Teresita Matos-Post | Everyday Spirituality
In this episode of Everyday Spirituality, we talk with the Executive Director of the Beth-El Farmworker Ministry in Wimauma, Florida. Beth-El exists to feed the Mind, Spirit, and Body of the farmworking community and our neighbors in need, through opportunities for hunger relief, education, healthcare, and spiritual growth.
Teresita Matos-Post has extensive experience in the non-profit sector with a passion for ministries of justice and mercy. She has worked in cross-cultural appointments with the United Methodist Church, as well having spent six years working for the Girl Scout Council in Florida.
In this conversation, Pastor Debbie and Teresita talked about the role creativity plays as a personal outlet, spiritual connection, and a tool for justice. But they go even deeper as they talk about the role of intercultural community, and the challenges of race and origin in relationship.
