Today we welcome Aaron Krause to Autism and Scouting Radio. Aaron is a new Eagle Scout, recent high school graduate and college student who regularly advocates for himself and for others on the autism spectrum. His Eagle Project was a video called "All Are Welcome" which was produced to help others know that all abilities are welcome in the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the ELCA. This video was shown at the Urban Autism Summit and during the opening for the International Summit on Disability Employment held in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2014.
We will be talking about Aaron's journey within scouting. Aaron started as a Tiger Cub Scout and continued for many years in the program, earning his Arrow of Light and later transitioning into Boy Scouts. We will also be asking Aaron abut his self-advocacy work. Aaron is a big believer in promoting autism acceptance and empowerment. He has testified at the Wisconsin state Capitol on a variety of autism-related issues including insurance reform, scholarships and school vouchers. He has also been interviewed on radio and TV. One of Aaron's life goals is to continue learning about autism and to spread Autism Acceptance wherever he goes.
Tune in for a great show with a fine young man!
Interview with Regina Jemison
Topics of conversation:
Poetry as reflection of Divine Nature Advocacy for social justice Poetry readings and discussion Sharing spiritual gifts with Black churches
Regina was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and educated in the Detroit Public School System, graduating from Cass Tech High School. She then obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Michigan, and a Juris Doctorate from Wayne State University. She has researched, practiced and taught law and law enforcement since 1993 in various undergraduate and graduate levels. She has also been the Legal Instructor at the Detroit Police Academy. As a young adult Christian, Regina began to get in touch with her vast spiritual gifts, which included her voice and vision for the divine possibilities of black people in general, and the black church in particular. She is the co-author of Follow the Way: A Strategy for African American Ministries in the ELCA. Following the Way is a strategy that was written in 1999 and is fully staffed today and remains as a guide in implementing effective African American ministries in the Lutheran church in the Southeast Michigan region. Regina also finished her first book of poetry expressions, Soul Clothes.

This episode of our show will feature our friend and colleague, Emily Scott who is pastor of St. Lydia's -- a dinner church that meets in the Gawanas neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Emily is an amazing pastor and organizer, and is the founding pastor of this cutting edge ministry that is working to "dispel isolation" in one of the world's largest and most impersonal cities. Want to be alone surrounded by millions of others??? New York is for you! (The hosts are a current and former New Yorker who both love this city, and our guest is trying to create community in one corner of Brooklyn.)
Every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at 8pm EST, 5pm PST we come to you live with thoughts on faith, spirituality, Christianity and culture. Rev. Jen (Jennifer Hope Kottler) is a spiritual director and certified life and leadership coach.
