Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III: Baby Name Reveal & Isaiah 58

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III has freedom preaching power in his DNA. The son of Civil Rights legend Rev. Dr. Otis Moss Jr., “OM3” is to his father as Kendrick Lamar is to John Coltrane: a Hop-Hop improvisation on genius contributing to new forms of greatness for a new generation. He is the Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ, a phenomenal foretaste of God’s reign on the South Side of Chicago, that Michelle Obama has recently reminded us in her memoir is where she and Barack Obama worshipped and were married. Yet Trinity is not just a church community that contributes to the formation of Presidents. Through the guidance of Rev Dr Otis Moss III, Trinity continues to be a living continuation of the civil rights movement that is ‘unapologetically black, unashamedly Christian’. OM3’s anointed preaching is unashamed in calling people to Christ and calling society to respond to the injustice of mass incarceration, environmental degradation, and economic inequality. In this episode Drew and Jarrod discuss with Rev. Dr. OM3 Isaiah 58 and reveal the name of Kat and Jarrod’s brand new baby boy.
