    61: Deep & Wide: Finding a Faith That's Richer & Better Than You Hoped. Guest: Traci Rhoades

    Author Traci Rhoades joins Amy to talk about what she has learned from being curious about the way different Christians worship and express their faith. This curiosity has led to her Quaker gatherings, Catholic mass, and Orthodox worship in another language.  And it's led her to the conviction that God called us to be one Church.

Springraine ,

Honest & Eye-Opening

Untangled is a fantastic podcast. It speaks truth into untangling the faith that so many of us grew up with, in addition to bringing to light toxic workplaces.

OneCandace ,

Tells hard stories with compassion and nuance

This is a compelling podcast that tells hard stories with compassion and nuance. I think people people who are newly disillusioned with Evangelical churches and culture after having previously being immersed in it will find thus podcast especially helpful and relatable.

My Side of 50 ,

Grace-filled Conversations

I love these interviews with a variety of guests who help Christians untangle some of the lies we’ve believed that leave us vulnerable to spiritual abuse. Very thought-provoking.
