The loud, encouragingly troublesome, rebellious, colorful artistry of what one really, actually believes.
What if real, transformative faith is more like disruptive punk rock?
In a world of people addicted to some piece of certainty on "faith-based" reason. Punk Theology exists to explore some hopeful, uncomfortable questions on growth, peace, well-being, recovering what's lost, understanding the plight of "the other", faith, fear and being alive.
An examination of the misfit's awakening spirit. So... How do you define meaning, beauty and truth?
One of the most positive things you could say about punk? It's not a lukewarm, Punk is alive.

    S04E14 Tribe 4 The Tribeless?

    Privacy Or Secrecy

    Privacy Or Secrecy

    If Secrecy is the act of hiding information... Is privacy is about being unobserved or incognito? What's the difference? What does it mean to be able to have ones own experience of life without the eyes of anyone else seeing and knowing? And what impacts does Privacy and Secrecy have on our mental health?
