    Episode164: "Letting Go"

    Episode164: "Letting Go"

    Let Go... The concept of non-attachment can be traced in and through Daoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and other Asian Philosophies. Within the Buddhist tradition, we find Four Noble Truths. The first, roughly translated, is the truth of suffering, and the second is the truth of the origin of suffering. That origin, according to The Buddha, is craving, or misplaced desire (Tanhā). Though the Pali words differ, they are conceptually related. Clinging and craving cause us suffering.So, what does letting go, in this context (we recorded this on Fat Tuesday BTW!), look like in everyday life? Let's Brew Theology, Episode 164 with Dan, Elizabeth, Janel and Ryan.

Diversity.

I really enjoy the democratic spirit in this podcast group. No one has the last voice. I also like the varied perspectives from around the table.

Ground breaking!

The concept of Brew Theology is simple, yet I believe it to be ground breaking and extremely vital to the Christian community on a number of levels! The Christian church as a whole can often be associated with an extreme lack of tolerance, deep seeded judgement and an overall zealous attitude, especially in the eyes of non believers. Christians often have a strict "box" we feel we all should fit into. i.e.) If you are a Christian you must also be a republic, against gay marriage, etc... Brew Theology breaks all of the stereotypes when it comes to faith, politics, and important current event topics! It allows people of all faiths and political affiliations to come together in a peaceful manner to discuss ALL topics, without the slightest hint of judgement or contention. I think if more people in the Christian community (actually ALL communities) took on this open-minded mindset, we would actually see true, positive and lasting change!
