EP. 41: Beauty in the Midst of Despair (with Ruth Naomi Floyd)

It’s probably safe to say that we’ve all experienced “the blues” at different times in our lives. But as Christians, how are we supposed to walk through those seasons of sadness, discouragement, or worse? Our guest for this episode, jazz singer Ruth Naomi Floyd, shares both the practical and the artistic ways we can find beauty in the midst of despair.

About our guest:

As a vocalist and composer, Ruth Naomi Floyd has been at the forefront of creating vocal jazz settings that express theology and justice for over 25 years. Also a committed music educator, Ms. Floyd is Director of Jazz Studies at Cairn University in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, and an Adjunct and Artist in Residence at Temple University. Before that, Ms. Floyd taught music for 20 years at The City School.

In addition to her musical talent, Ruth Naomi is also an award-winning fine art photographer specializing in black and white portrait images. She continues to make the city of Philadelphia her home, where for over 25 years she has been devoted and active in providing compassionate care and spiritual support to people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.
