YaYa and TRUTH started out as classmates and ended up as sista-friends. Drawn together by a love of God, music, and the beautiful borough of Brooklyn, what they had most in common was that they often found themselves craving more— More from the academic style conversations about theology found at seminary, and more from the often closed minded rhetoric of traditional churches. With Real Talk on Godtalk, they hope to bring the church to the street and vice versa, in authentic engagement with questions of God, religion, and spiritual life.
