    Beholding the Faith 7 - Liturgy, Community, and Creativity (w/ Janelle Hiroshige)

    Beholding the Faith 7 - Liturgy, Community, and Creativity (w/ Janelle Hiroshige)

    We look at how liturgies that arrange ordinary objects and our everyday habits to shape our hearts and minds are not just things that happen in some worship services but also in our entertainment and work commutes and, well, everything really. Then we look at how the structure of good liturgy opens up surprising creativity and connections with others.

    Beholding the Faith - Black Art, Writing, Racism, and God (w/ M'Lynn Martin)

    We explore some specific artistically formed words, to see how they can not just express grand thoughts about God and God’s beautiful desire to reconcile the world, but help us better enter the concrete realities of some of the most difficult and painful issues of our day, to really experience miraculous reconciliations.

    Our featured guest for this episode and the next is M'Lynn Martin. Find her writings on Instagram (link in her bio) under the handle @mlynn.martin.

    Beholding the Faith 4 - Resurrection and Aesthetic Experience

    Beholding the Faith 4 - Resurrection and Aesthetic Experience

    Our senses, feelings, and initial perceptions are notorious for misleading us. So we look at the process of refining our senses and feelings so they can get involved in helping us explore reality, perhaps even realties beyond death.

    Beholding the Faith 3 - Performance Art & Expectations, the Transfiguration & Crucifixion (w/ Dr. Charissa Noble)

    Beholding the Faith 3 - Performance Art & Expectations, the Transfiguration & Crucifixion (w/ Dr. Charissa Noble)

    Art intentionally arranges things and builds on our expectations to help us see, hear, feel, or otherwise notice something. 

    This time we look at instances where Jesus artistically arranged things, and explore why arrangements that help us seek and know God should not always be pleasing to us.

    Beholding the Faith 2 - Effort, Art, Practice and Meaning - w/ Dr. Charissa Noble

    Beholding the Faith 2 - Effort, Art, Practice and Meaning - w/ Dr. Charissa Noble

    We explore the sweat, frustration and repetition it takes to get good at something like music or baseball or sketching or worship, and ask what makes this all worthwhile.

    Again, with Dr. Charissa Noble

Thank you for the work that you do!

We have been covering COVID-19 on my show and I am contantly searching for content outside of the mainstream media that covers COVID-19 from different perspectives. I really enjoyed the episode on how the outbreak effecting the unsheltered/homeless and most vulnerable in our society as this is an issue I care deeply about. Together we will get through this.
