    Fool for God with Mir Plemmons

    Fool for God with Mir Plemmons

    Welcome to episode 81! In this episode, I have the honor of interviewing Deacon Mir Plemmons.
    Chaplain Mir Plemmons is a brand-new Deacon in the Ecumenical Catholic Communion and a Novice of the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans. He has been a Franciscan for 28 years and has served as a chaplain for 34 years.
    He and his wife live *almost* far enough from Seattle to enjoy the natural terrain Washington has to offer, and he teaches high school special education. He does disaster mental health as a Field Traumatologist. He has extensively taught socio-emotional skills. He is a writer and an editor and serves and advocates for Intersex, QUILTBAG+, and Science Fiction & Fantasy Fandom. He volunteers extensively in multiple organizations including, but not limited to, the Society for Creative Anachronism, Civil Air Patrol, and Okanogan Fire Protection District 12.
    He tries hard to pay attention to his wife’s reminders to get enough self-care and rest to at least not be a bad example…

    Metanoia Reactions with Michaelangelo D'Arrigo

    Metanoia Reactions with Michaelangelo D'Arrigo

    Welcome to Episode 80!  Hard to believe we have been around for 80 episodes.  I’m excited to be interviewing The Reverend Canon Michaelangelo D’Arrigo. 
    The Reverend Canon Michaelangelo D'Arrigo lives in the Metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, area with his wife, Claudia, a Therapeutic Massage Therapist, son, D'Mitri, a high schooler, two doggies, and a cat. Before ordination, he worked as a professional musician, and as a substance abuse counselor
    He was ordained to the Anglican Priesthood in 2006 and spent two years in parish ministry, specializing in Pastoral Counseling and Liturgical Writing. He then worked as a missionary to the homeless community in the Little Five Points neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, for three years.
    After his mission work ended, Michaelangelo spent the next two years working with non-denominational churches in the Metropolitan Atlanta area, specializing in Pastoral Counseling, and Music Ministry.
    In 2012, after a brief stint back in a parish setting, the Holy Spirit led him to start Metanoia Ministries. This church was established to serve everyone; gay, straight, trans, disenfranchised, seekers, those abused by other churches, and everyone in between. His mission continues to be to spread the Good News to all. To counsel as needed, to teach, to provide folks the tools they need to work through their salvation.
    Metanoia later transformed into what is now Agape Fellowship of Greater Atlanta. They are exploring what it means to be the church in our ever-evolving cultural landscape.
    Michaelangelo is an Elder/Priest in the Convergent Christian Communion, and Canon to their Presiding Bishop.

    Be who you are with Joseph Grieboski

    Be who you are with Joseph Grieboski

         Welcome to episode 79, in this episode I have the honor of interviewing Father Joseph Grieboski.  His bio is long, but I didn’t know what to cut out so want to share it all with you.  I think you will find his story fascinating.
          Joseph K. Grieboski is a social entrepreneur whose innovative ideas have revolutionized thinking across a number of fields. 
         In 1999 – at the age of 24 – Grieboski founded THE INSTITUTE on Religion and Public Policy, a well-respected and world-renowned non-governmental organization at the forefront of religious freedom advocacy. Many years and several Nobel Peace Prize nominations later, Grieboski has become an internationally recognized expert in religious freedom, national security, counter-extremism, human rights, and conflict transformation. As a matter of fact, in a letter to Grieboski in 2005, His Majesty, King Mohammed VI, of Morocco referred to Grieboski’s work as the “foundation of a new civilization”.
         His extensive travels to over 140 countries in every corner of the map have allowed Grieboski to meet, interact with, and befriend leaders of business and industry, government, entertainment, advocacy, and other arenas, giving him one of Washington’s best and most sought-after rolodexes.
         From confidence-building programs in Darfur to post-conflict reconstruction in Kosovo, from track-three diplomacy efforts in North Korea and Iran to minority protection and reintegration in Iraq and Afghanistan, from authoring countless laws for numerous countries to securing the successful release of hostages and prisoners, Grieboski has been at the forefront of some of most crucial and sensitive issues in the world.
         Grieboski is a Senior Fellow with The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute and was one of three finalists for United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief and nominee for United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants and Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, demonstrating global recognition of his expertise on international human rights and security issues. Chairman of the Board of International Center on Religion and Justice, he also serves as Chairman of the Board of International Campaign for the Rohingya; Member of the Board of Directors of Interfaith Alliance; Member of the Board of Trustees of the International Foundation for Tolerance; Member of the Board of Directors of The Working Group on Children Recruited by Terrorist and Violent Extremist Groups; Member of the Board of Advisors of Rumi Forum; Strategic US Advisor to the Directorate, Faith and Globalization Program, Durham University, United Kingdom; Secretary-General, Interparliamentary Conference on Human Rights and Religious Freedom; Member of the Board of Honor, Planète Citoyenne; Member of the Board of Advisors, Arakhan Rohingya Union; Member of the Board of Advisors, Military Religious Freedom Foundation; Member of the Board of Advisors, Anti-Predator Project; Member of the Expert Advisory Group on "Promoting and Protecting the Universal Right to Freedom of Religion or Belief through Law: Current Dilemmas and Lessons Learned”, International Development Law Organization. 
         The author of over 50 articles and two recognized publications with Palgrave Macmillan and Oakton, Grieboski served as a columnist for The Huffington Post and a foreign news editor and contributor for The Cutting Edge News. His book, Because I Believe: Inspiring Stories from People Who Are Changing the World, is due out in 2021.
         Former Chair of the US State Department Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society Working Group on Religion and Foreign Policy Subgroup on International Development and Humanitarian Assistance under Secretary of S

    Be a Priest with Brian Ashmankas

    Be a Priest with Brian Ashmankas

    Welcome to Episode 78! In this episode, I have the honor of speaking with Brian Ashmankas.
    Brian is a native of central Massachusetts.  He is a former politician and former Roman Catholic seminarian for the Diocese of Worcester.  He has two master’s degrees, one in political science and the other in theology.  He was dismissed from sponsorship by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Worcester in December 2019 after sharing with his bishop that he has a well-discerned call to be a married Catholic priest in Worcester.  He is currently an aspirant for ordination with the Good Shepherd Companions, an Ecumenical Catholic Ordinariate formed from the joining of the Ecumenical Catholic Diocese of America and the St. Barnabas Mission with roots in the Married Priests Now movement started by Emmanuel Milingo.  He is recently the founder and facilitator of the “Community of the Hyphenated.” This group meets weekly on Zoom to share and listen to each others’ spiritual insights and stories and aims at self-reflection, self-betterment, learning from others’ experiences, camaraderie, and ultimately social and ecclesiological transformation – building a new world and church in the shell of the old.

    What is a Chaplain?

    What is a Chaplain?

    Welcome to Episode 77.
    In this episode, I, David Oliver Kling, will be talking about what is a chaplain?  I have been working as a full-time hospice chaplain since December of 2013 and prior to my work in hospice, I completed 4 units of Clinical Pastoral Education as a chaplain resident at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Huntington, West Virginia. 
    What is a Chaplain?
    Good advice for anyone interested in chaplaincy would be to suspend your sectarianism. Does being a Chaplain mean I'll have to do things I don't want to do? Chaplaincy brings up all of our personal issues and creates its own anxieties. Do Chaplains reject academic insight and knowledge?  A Chaplain is someone who reflects theologically and who uses their theological reflection to inform and empower their care for others. How does a Chaplain do an assessment?  Links:
