Celeste A Frazier

Rev. Celeste hosts Tracy Brown, Diversity and Inclusion trainer, licensed practitioner, leader and author for this powerful episode. Tracy's company, Stained Glass Spirit (https://stglsp.wordpress.com/) is an online space "Where Diversity, Spirituality & Inclusion Intersect!" After more than 20 years of doing diversity and inclusion work, Tracy established Stained Glass Spirit to help create more inclusion in New Thought spiritual communities. She also has a book by the same name with the subtitle "Where Oneness Does Not Require Sameness" (https://www.amazon.com/Stained-Glass-Spirit-Spiritual-Community/dp/1889819506/ref=sr_1_2dchild=1&keywords=Stained+Glass+Spirit&qid=1596227981&sr=8-2.)  You can find "Walk Your Stained Glass Spirit Talk" on this site as well.

Tracy Brown's site: reclaimjoy.com is filled with ways to find your inner joy and inner peace every day. There are images and videos and other inspirational material (quotes), classes, e-books and talks to assist you in remembering your spiritual center.

Tracy also has a book called "I Turn to Prayer" (http://www.iturntoprayer.com/) which is a collection of prayers and prayer poems.

Tracy has been working on building a practical strategy for inclusion for most of her life. She did a TedX talk called "What Is Mine to Do". https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=mcafee&p=tedx+%2B+Tracy+Brown#id=1&vid=cc00274a0e5b59482146bd0bf1589daf&action=click). The day after the massacre of the Charleston Nine, Tracy reported for jury duty and contemplated whether or not she could be a fair juror if she were on that jury. As she further contemplate other racial makeups with the same set of circumstances, she found herself being comforted by another potential juror who asked if there was anything he could do. She responded yes. "As a White man, you can tell people that you believe the killing of Black people on the basis of the color of their skin must stop." A couple of days later, she created a Facebook group with the same name to stimulate answers to that question. That group now has over 6,000 members and is active daily with solutions.

Rev. C shared how nervous she was to be in the pulpit the following Sunday with a predominantly White congregation  and how she became keenly aware that Love was the only solution.

Tracy has been on the Leadership Council of the Centers for Spiritual Living (csl.org) for several years where she was also the Chairperson for three years. Stepping into leadership was natural for her. Being on this governing body for CSL caused her to be even more spiritually grounded because being a leader in a spiritual organization was challenging. She feels blessed to be in leadership when the organization was just becoming (a merger between two Religious Science organizations). The question: "Do I believe this teaching or not?" came up frequently during this faith walk.

Tracy is human and her commitment to "Go high" and live a spiritually grounded life keeps her above the fray. Rev. Celeste mentioned a lesson from A Course in Miracles (acim.org): God is in everything I see as she shared that there's more to people than what we see when they are in their pain and fear.

Tracy's Facebook groups Stained Glass Spirit, "Reclaim Joy" and "What Is Mine to Do" are good places to find her events. But you can find all things Tracy Brown at tracybrown.com
