    John Pavlovitz does not consider himself a member of the radical left, unless you count behaving like the object of the Christian faith radical (which it is and always has been). In this podcast he talks about being the inclusivity of faith, dealing with radical right friends and family, mental health and more.

    Jamie Wright is the very worst missionary, but she still knows far more about missions than you do, and doesn't care if you like her or not.

    Jamie Wright is the very worst missionary, but she still knows far more about missions than you do, and doesn't care if you like her or not.

    Jamie Wright is a writer who knows spending $53 billion annually to spreak white people religion is ridculous. That's why she closely monitors the crap meter that evaluates such "mission trips" and "callings" and loudly and colorfully reports the truth to anyone who will listen.
    Her new book "The Very Worst Missionary: A Memoir or Whatever" is the most honest book on being a missionary I have read. It's based on her five years as an on-the-ground, full-time "foreign" missionary, and is a spot on account of the underbelly of what it's like.
    She's a good writer who is going to get even better with her next book (I have her promise she will keep working on it).
    After you buy her book, follow her latest musings on her blog here.

    Maggie Rowe's sins bravely, but she's actually closer to the mark than she thinks

    Maggie Rowe's sins bravely, but she's actually closer to the mark than she thinks

    Rebroadcast of podcast with writer, comedian and always fascinating Maggie Rowe. Since this interview, Season Two of "Flaked" has aired, and it finished well. Buy her book.
    If, as Anne Lamott writes, laughter is the carbonated form of the Holy Spirit, Maggie Rowe is a major distributor of divine carbonation for the third member of the trinity, something for which we can all be grateful.
    (And for the record), though she worried at one point she was getting close, Maggie has never managed to blaspheme her bubbly supplier.
    As writer, comedian, actor and the author of "Sin Bravely: My Great Escape from Evangelical Hell," she brings some serious fun to the Thinking God Podcast.
    You may have seen her in such movies as "Ocean's Thirteen" or "Fun With Dick and Jane," or the monster television series "Arrested Development," a show for which she is also a writer.
    And for 15 years she has been a key part of the Comedy Central show "Sit 'N' Spin."
    Maggie is currently writing for the wonderful series "Flaked," which is available on Netflix. 
    She is also someone who has found a path of recovery from misgued religion to a place of faith and hope, which makes her the perfect guest.
