    Revolutionary Love: Elizabeth Lott's Radical Faith Journey

    Revolutionary Love: Elizabeth Lott's Radical Faith Journey

    Hey everyone, Oteil here from the Comes A Time podcast, broadcasting from Petaluma, California. This episode is a special one as I'm recording something secret and cool that I can't wait to share with you. Our guest this week is my old friend Elizabeth Lott, who I know from our days at church in Birmingham, Alabama. Elizabeth recently made a significant life change, leaving her position as possibly the first female Baptist pastor in New Orleans. We delve into her journey, her continued faith, and the big questions that led her to this new chapter.
    Elizabeth and I discuss her remarkable path from being a trailblazer in the church to stepping away due to feeling confined by the institution. Despite her strong belief, she felt the church wasn't aligning with the radical, revolutionary love she felt called to pursue. Our conversation touches on the challenges of breaking away from established norms, her move to Macon, Georgia, and the excitement of new beginnings. Elizabeth's story is one of courage and faith, and I was thrilled to have this deep and heartfelt conversation with her.
    As always, you can catch this episode and all our others on all podcast platforms and our Comes A Time Podcast YouTube page. Don't forget to check out our Patreon for exclusive content. We appreciate your support, so like, share, and subscribe to keep up with all the latest.
    Peace and much love, Oteil.

Reverend Jeff

I can’t remember the last time I got this much pleasure listening to a podcast. The two of y’all are a trip. I enjoyed just hearing the laughter. I would show up every Sunday to hear the two of you preach. The stories, experiences and love shared was palpable. I’m waiting for part 3. Seriously, thank you both for these conversations. It was good for my soul to hear such down home truth.

Like I’m hanging with friends!

Thank you thank you Mike and Oteil for putting your time and energy into this podcast! I’m raising a teenager with multiple learning disabilities and mental health challenges-while managing mine and my spouse’s bouts of anxiety and depression (and all the physical upkeep of peak middle age!), caring for aging and ailing parents, and a woman living in a red state. This show brings me so much peace and connection-as a Deahead, as a spiritual person, as a deep thinker and sometimes just someone who wants to escape and feel a broader connection. I appreciate your vulnerability, your laughter and your love for each other and of course, music. You both bring me through some dark spaces like I’m just hanging out with my besties. Please keep on keepin on!
