Today’s guest is the bad and the beautiful Mariah Martin. Mariah is a pastor at Faith Mennonite Church and the host of the Called to be Bad Podcast. Called to be Bad is a podcast where guests reveal a "bad" topic they are passionate about (by "bad" we mean strange, taboo, something that goes against the status quo of what it means to be faithful). She loves animals, coffee, and books--especially books about vampires. Mariah lives with her spouse Nick Bouwman in Goshen, Indiana with their two bunnies and seven chickens
In this episode, Mariah and I talk bougie pets, creating safety to discuss mental health in the church,Christianity and critical thinking, how her podcasting journey is tackling the qualifiers of good to bad found so frequently in church culture, and relationship with a diverse and beautiful God. I am so inspired and hopeful for the church when I get the chance to talk with thoughtful and innovative leaders and creators like Mariah.
