    Episode 8 Season 4 with Rabbi Rami Shapiro

    While my personal life is between me, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, here are some highlights from my professional life:
    I was born on April 26, 1951 and circumcised eight days later. (OK, that was personal.)
    I earned rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion in 1981, and a PH.D. in religion from Union Graduate School in 1985. Over the past forty years I’ve been a USAF chaplain, a congregational rabbi, a business consultant, a university professor, and an author of three dozen books on religion and spirituality.
    In 2010 I was initiated into the Ramakrishna Order of Vedanta Hinduism by Swami Swahananda, and became a 32° Scottish Rite Mason (KCCH). Several years later I founded the Order of the Holy Rascal, and joined another secret society, The Grand Lodge of All Beings.





    I currently co-direct the One River Foundation (oneriverfoundation.org), write the “Roadside Assistance for the Spiritual Traveler” column for Spirituality & Health Magazine and host the magazine’s podcast “Essential Conversations with Rabbi Rami (spiritualityhealth.com).
    And through it all I have wrestled with my addiction to food. (Ah, again with the personal.

Refreshing

Scott and Jon are a breath of fresh air! I was hesitant to listen at first thinking it would be too "churchy." So glad I was wrong! They share their views with humor and grace. It is refreshing and I am hooked!

Glory to God, hallelujah, pass the collection plate!

I came across this podcast a few months ago. Very few people can claim to take Jesus as seriously as these guys do. With humility and honesty, they wrestle with the Divine, opening the box we've placed 'Him' in; discussing what that looks like and how we should respond to that. Whether you are the most conservative evangelical or the most liberal atheist, you will feel welcome here.

THANK YOU.

You guys are awesome - you are helping me share in the journey of deconstructing and reconstructing my faith and way of understanding everything I thought I once was so certain of.., thank you, even though I know the road ahead is going to be very challenging! Xx
