    EP:21 Chris Green — God's Sovereignty and Our Freedom

    EP:21 Chris Green — God's Sovereignty and Our Freedom

    The concept of God's sovereignty has been heavily debated in both classrooms and churches throughout history. We constantly ask: does God's power limit ours? 
    We have discussed this topic here at Everyday Theology before, on EP:14 with Thomas Jay Oord. In that episode, Oord recommended that we think beyond our traditional "all-controlling" view of God, and consider limitations on God's power. 
    Today, however, author, artist and theologian Chris Green presents a different perspective: he proposes that we allow room for both a fully active and fully present God in our daily lives.

    EP:20 Kaitlin Curtice — Why Decolonization Matters in the Church

    EP:20 Kaitlin Curtice — Why Decolonization Matters in the Church

    The process of decolonization requires us first to develop respect for the other. If respect is an inherently Christian value, why do our churches so often demand assimilation? 

    In this episode, author Kaitlin Curtice, citizen of the Potawatomi Nation, discusses the complexities in deconstructing our faith and spiritual community to understand our true personal and cultural identity.

    EP:17 Carolyn Custis James — Approaching Patriarchy in Scripture

    EP:17 Carolyn Custis James — Approaching Patriarchy in Scripture

    Patriarchy is the backdrop of the Bible; it is not the message. How, then, should we perceive gender roles as they are presented to us? In this episode, Carolyn Custis James teaches us how to look beyond our Western patriarchal lens and understand the true message of the text: one of united purpose and mutual flourishing.
