The American Trappist Monk, theologian and poet, Thomas Merton, a regular participant in interfaith work, once wrote – God speaks to us in three places: in scripture, in our deepest selves, and in the voice of the stranger.
Here at Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry, we say that we don’t have to believe alike to love alike, and we try to live that. How does our faith shape how we see the world? How does our personal faith tradition influence our opinions on the news of the day? In an age in which religion can sometimes be weaponized, how do we strive to find God speaking to each of us, through each of us?
Welcome to Intersections, a podcast designed to bring together the diversity of faithful people in Tulsa for dialogue on the issues that impact us all.
