In this episode of Suite Talk we sit down with U.S. Representative Emanuel Cleaver of Kansas City, MO for a serious, yet at times playful, conversation about faith, family, creative expression and social justice.
Congressman Cleaver has worn many hats during the past four decades—City Councilman, Mayor, radio talk show host, husband and father—all while pastoring the St. James United Methodist Church in Kansas City.
Like his hometown standing at the confluence of two powerful rivers, Congressman Cleaver has spent his life navigating mighty forces at the intersection of secular and sacred worlds. He offers a unique perspective our current social and political landscape.
Some of what we learn include: what he does to relax (get ready for this one), how to talk God and what it’s like to watch your son come into his own.
Lean in, lean back and enjoy!
