Peace, spirituality, values, and activism from a Jesus perspective

    conversation with Isabel on scripture

    conversation with Isabel on scripture

    The second part of my recent, ongoing conversation with Isabel, a fellow spiritual seeker, with an ambivalent relationship with the catholic Christianity she grew up with. We focus in on questions of truth and narrative, doubt and testimony, with regard to the “sacred writings” that possibly inform faith, in this case the “scriptures” that Christians […]

    Ali Phelps on co-housing

    Ali Phelps on co-housing

    In our most recent podcast episode I have a conversation with Ali Phelps, whose shalom-activism takes form in commitment to a particular geography–and church within in–along with co-housing as a way to inhabit that geography. We also hear a bit about Ali’s faith journey, including her encounter with Anabaptism–through the work of Ellie and Alan […]
