What Keeps the Church from Apologizing for Harm?

June 16th, 2018
On the heels of an attempted biblical justification of separating children from their parents, we consider the times the bible has been used to justify harm against groups of people. Why is it difficult to do the work of restoration? What does it take to resolve those situations and begin to repair the harm done?  We're answering those questions and discussing strategies for getting on with the work of healing.

It’s the Federal Courts, Saints!

June 10th, 2018

The Supreme Court issued another debated decision this week so we figure it is the perfect time to discuss the importance of the Federal bench. This week, we discuss how that bench is currently being shaped, especially at the lower court level, how it impacts you and how you can impact it.

Primaries are here. Election season is underway. This matters. Check out this episode to learn more about why.

Let’s Talk About Israel

June 2nd, 2018

Does it seem like speaking about Israel is only acceptable at certain times? Is there a blind allegiance to Israel? Why is our support of Israel seeming inseparable from our faith? Do you feel like it is difficult to have any conversation about Israel without crossing a line of anti-Semitism? We're discussing those questions and more as we tackle the current situation between Israel and Palestine.

Let's talk!

Sex in the Bible: Queer Theology (Full Episode)

May 30th, 2018

Our next entry in the Sex in the Bible series is an important discussion of Queer Theology. Nick Gaines joins us as we attempt to liberate our view of God and allow that freedom to liberate ourselves.

In this episode, we discuss the gendering and sexuality of God, how the bible was assembled and used as a tool to oppress, how the strategy of colonization is implemented to deny queer people access to a relationship with God, how that impacts children, cultural impacts on human development and sexuality and how that informs how we partner and parent.

Ending this discussion, we cover resources and techniques to help reclaim your spirituality, be healed, be whole, and be free.

Join us, as we queer theology.

Sex in the Bible: Queer Theology Pt. 2

May 26th, 2018
This week, we continue our exploration of Queer Theology with Nick Gaines. We discuss cultural impacts on human development and sexuality and how that informs how we partner and parent. Churches that have been inhospitable to the LGBTQIA community cannot be confused when that community, who has supported the church, has to create some distance to heal. We examine that exodus and what it means. 
 
Ending this discussion, we cover resources and techniques to help reclaim your spirituality, be healed, be whole, and be free. 
 
Join us, as we queer theology.
