    Ross Gay: Pedagogy of Love, Precarity & Survival

    Ross Gay: Pedagogy of Love, Precarity & Survival

    The Common Good podcast is a conversation about the significance of place, eliminating economic isolation and the structure of belonging. For this episode, Devin Bustin and Joey Taylor speak with Ross Gay about his books Inciting Joy, The Book of Delights, Catalogue of Unabashed Gratitude and Be Holding. 

    "Ross Gay is interested in joy. Ross Gay wants to understand joy. Ross Gay is curious about joy. Ross Gay studies joy. Something like that."
    Ross Gay is the author of four books of poetry: Against Which; Bringing the Shovel Down; Be Holding, winner of the PEN American Literary Jean Stein Award; and Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, winner of the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award and the 2016 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award.

    This episode was guest hosted by Devin Bustin. Devin Bustin is a writer and teacher who lives in Loveland, Ohio. Growing up, Devin attended well over a dozen schools across Canada and the United States. This gave him a longing to know specific places, to connect with openness, and to create belonging. Raised Pentecostal, Devin wrestles with the faith he inherited, often through fiction, essays, and poetry. He is often working on a song, and his emergent work can be found at devinbustin.com.

    Walter Brueggemann: Emancipation Myth

    Walter Brueggemann: Emancipation Myth

    The Common Good podcast is a conversation about the significance of place, eliminating economic isolation and the structure of belonging. For this episode, Brad Wise, Darin Petersen and Joey Taylor speak with Walter Brueggemann about myth, Exodus and how it relates to the work of the Common Good.
    The recited poem was Moses by Luis Alberto de Cuenca.
    Walter Brueggemann is one of the most influential Bible interpreters of our time. He is the author of over one hundred books and numerous scholarly articles. He has been a highly sought-after speaker. Brueggemann was born in Tilden, Nebraska in 1933. He often speaks of the influence of his father, a German Evangelical pastor. Brueggemann attended Elmhurst College, graduating in 1955 with an A.B. He went on to Eden Theological Seminary, earning a B.D. (equivalent to today’s M.Div.) in 1958. He completed his formal theological education at Union Theological Seminary in 1961, earning the Th.D. under the primary guidance of James Muilenburg. While teaching at Eden, he earned a Ph.D. in education at St. Louis University. Brueggemann has served as faculty at two institutions in his career: Eden Theological Seminary (1961-1986) and Columbia Theological Seminary (1986-2003). He is currently William Marcellus McPheeters professor emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia. Brueggemann’s primary method with the text is rhetorical criticism. Words matter to Brueggemann, and one can tell that by listening to him speak as he hangs on to particularly theologically significant words. His magnum opus, Theology of the Old Testament (1997), is a rhetorical-critical look at the Old Testament through the lenses of “testimony, dispute, and advocacy.” Many have come to know Brueggemann through his book entitled The Prophetic Imagination. Church leaders find a friend in Brueggemann, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His work inspires, energizes, and convicts, and he often makes time to interact personally with those to whom he speaks at large events.

    Darin Petersen is the co-founder of the Common Good Collective and founder of Common Change.
    Brad Wise is the co-founder of three story-driven organizations: Boonrise, Bespoken Live, and Good vs Gooder. He is the chief creative officer for Boonrise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. When he's not doing all that, Brad is hanging out with his beautiful wife, Leah, and their three kids, Henry, Jane & Eliza. Their crazy dogs, Huck & Lola, are usually close by, as well. Brad was also a Common Good Collective Fellow.

    Jenn Hoos Rothberg: Crisis of Connection

    Jenn Hoos Rothberg: Crisis of Connection

    The Common Good podcast is a conversation about the significance of place, eliminating economic isolation and the structure of belonging.  Your host is Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp. This episode is the Abundant Community Conversation from November 15 where Peter Block spoke with Jenn Hoos Rothberg, the Executive Director of the Einhorn Collaborative, about "A Call to Connection." Abundant Community conversations happen every couple of months on Zoom and they always contain poetry, small groups and an exploration of a particular theme.

    Jennifer Hoos Rothberg leads Einhorn Collaborative, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to addressing America’s growing crisis of connection by advancing the science and practice of empathy, mutual understanding, and relationship building in the United States. Jenn, who joined in 2007, oversees all aspects of the foundation in partnership with its Founder and Trustee, David Einhorn, including setting strategic priorities and building collaborative partnerships that advance our ability to embrace our differences, see our common humanity, and solve our country’s biggest challenges together. Jenn is a member of the Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community, the Town School Board of Trustees, and the NationSwell Council. She received her Master’s in Regional Planning and Bachelor’s in Urban and Regional Studies with Honors from Cornell University. She lives in NYC with her husband, two children, and cockapoo, Zucca. You can follow Jenn on LinkedIn and Twitter.

    In addition to being the Communications Lead at Einhorn Collaborative, Chi Nguyễn is an interdisciplinary artist who uses textiles and community-engaged practices to examine the intersection of identities in the U.S., explore the concept of belonging, and reflect on her recent transition to motherhood. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, Washington Post, Salon, Ms. Magazine, Huffington Post, BusinessWeek, Vice, and Bustle, among others. She is based in The Bronx, New York where she lives with her husband, daughter, and their dog, Uni. 
    Here is the recited poem, "Turning to One Another" by Margaret Wheatley:
    There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about.
    Ask “What’s possible?” not “What’s wrong?” Keep asking.
    Notice what you care about.
    Assume that many others share your dreams.
    Be brave enough to start a conversation that matters.
    Talk to people you know.
    Talk to people you don’t know.
    Talk to people you never talk to.
    Be intrigued by the differences you hear.
    Expect to be surprised.
    Treasure curiosity more than certainty.
    Invite in everybody who cares to work on what’s possible.
    Acknowledge that everyone is an expert about something.
    Know that creative solutions come from new connections.
    Remember, you don’t fear people whose story you know.
    Real listening always brings people closer together.
    Trust that meaningful conversations can change your world.
    Rely on human goodness. 
    Stay together.

    The recited poem was Transformation by Adam Zagajewski. It’s been translated by Clare Cavanagh.
    I haven’t written a single poem
     in months.
     I’ve lived humbly, reading the paper,
     pondering the riddle of power
     and the reasons for obedience.
     I’ve watched sunsets
     (crimson, anxious),
     I’ve heard the birds grow quiet
     and night’s muteness.
     I’ve seen sunflowers dangling
     their heads at dusk, as if a careless hangman
     had gone strolling through the gardens.
     September’s sweet dust gathered
     on the windowsill and lizards
     hid in the bends of walls.
     I’ve taken long walks,
     craving one thing only:
     lightning,
     transformation,
     you.
