Intersectionally progressive faith

Full disclosure - I'm a guest on one of the episodes.

Cindy works hard to boost voices from marginalized and under-represented groups. She keeps her focus on how we can raise our children with acceptance and gentleness as fully loved humans. She sets a great example for parents, educators, and faith leaders, and for the kids who will soon step into these roles.

I’ve never felt more seen in my life

Like many post-evangelicals, the deconstruction process of my faith has been lonely, guilt-inducing, and isolating. It is so hard to peel off layers of your faith that have been with you for so long and feel like home, even though you know in your heart it’s wrong. Within the first few minutes of listening to Cindy’s podcast, I was moved to tears in finding someone who was able to put my feelings into words. She has introduced me to a community, faith leaders—a whole movement of people living out progressive Christianity. I’m so so thankful for Cindy’s voice. I feel hopeful about Christianity for the first time in a long time. Cindy, I can never thank you enough for the work that you do. I’ve shared your podcast with everyone I know. You’re a gift to us all.
