Sinopsis

If you find yourself on the fringes of Christianity, either looking out or looking in, this is for you. The faith is far more dynamic than it has been commonly shown, and here is my playful and rabbinic attempt to dust it off by looking at today through the eyes of its best from church history as well as today.

    12/07/2017 Duración: 20min

    I think the title describes it all. Well, that and the fact I break down how people may have had "Be holy as God is holy" taught to them in an oppressive and shame-inducing manner, then, provide a better way of understanding it.

    So, here is a perfect "ambushed" moment for me. In the midst of doing some reading on the burning bush event in Exodus 3, I found an ancient, but new to me, interpretation of the event... It is an interpretation that bore a lot of fruit for me personally, hopefully it will do the same for you.

  • Ep. 21 | St. Bonaventure And Swingsets

    Ep. 21 | St. Bonaventure And Swingsets

    24/03/2017 Duración: 17min

    Last year I was encouraged to check out St. Bonaventure. He is the one responsible for the most famous biography of St. Francis of Assisi and is also responsible for the Franciscan order becoming what it is today. St. Bonaventure, since first reading him about 2 years ago, has become one of my favorite figures in church history. He loved philosophy and theology, but also loved nature and teaching on the importance of justice. Enjoy.

  • Ep. 20 | Hijacking Religion And Luke 18

    Ep. 20 | Hijacking Religion And Luke 18

    24/03/2017 Duración: 20min

    And we're back. Due to the busy-ness of life, I had to put this on hold. However, we are back! This season of Lent has been a great one as I have purposefully put myself in a place to hear some new and challenging voices. But it's all good, because I have been processing what true religion is. So, give a listen if you want to hear a little bit about immature religion vs authentic faith and how Luke 18 is a fantastic commentary on these two things.
