Betwixt podcast is a unique place for meaningful conversations about the liminal spaces between faith, spiritual formation and a flourishing life. Through intimate conversations with fascinating guests, we share stories of their experiences at the brink of becoming and the wisdom of charting a course through the in-between.
Join us on this journey as we explore the depths of our innermost selves and the outermost reaches of our faith. We hope our stories will help you embrace the unknown and find the courage to step into the liminal space.
Stations of the Cross Introduction
For centuries, Christians have set out on a holy pilgrimage in 14 movements. From the Garden of Gethsemane to the Garden Tomb, we invite you to walk with Jesus, experiencing the sorrow, suffering, and passion of his self-sacrificial love. This meditation introduces a series of 14 audio meditations that follow 14 Stations of the Cross.We follow in his way, knowing that one offers no greater love than laying down their life for others. As we join Jesus, we are reminded that we are his beloved children, made in his image, and invited to experience the beauty of his presence, even as we walk toward death.These meditations accompany sacred art crafted by the artists of Flourish Contemplative Center. To view the virtual gallery, visit ColumbusAnglicanMission.org. Flourish Artists include Michelle Morris, Michael O'Donnell and Lynn Staggs.

End of 2020 examen
This was a stellar examen. Thank you Kelsie for this.
Beautiful, informative, and engaging
Betwixt has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. Deb asks excellent questions and invites such interesting and knowledgeable guests. The Imago Dei series really opened my eyes to how theologically rich the topic is and fundamentally affected how I see myself and understand humanity’s relation to God. Since becoming a believer, the topic and treatment of gender has caused me immense stress and I am so grateful to hear Betwixt navigate those discussions with nuance and grace.
Insightful and Informative
In an increasingly polarized and disoriented nation and church, this podcast has felt like a warm hug. Deb is a gracious, thoughtful host who asks great questions and brings in guests to help speak to the nuance we must hold as Christians in today's world. This podcast has helped me realize how my faith, critical thinking, and imagination, and action can be combined in effective ways. Highly recommend!
