I sit down for Part 2 of our Patron conversations. Jim and I discuss so much here. Cultural bias, the future of the church and faith. How can we make room for others and a willingness to let go of certainty.
Race. Inclusion. Fear. Grace. Why do we struggle to talk about any and/or all of these? Could it be that we just don't know how? This week I sit down with Rev. Dr. Serene Jones in a deeply personal conversation about all of the above and the beautiful idea that Original Grace is entirely more important that Original Sin.

This week I sit down with Rafael Polendo to discuss what it looks like to live and do things in life differently as a Christian; and what happens when we step out of comfort zones and love and engage with our family and community differently. Ultimately, what happens when we unmuzzle our faith?
We like to think of ourselves, Americans, as the audience of the stories of the Bible. Tending to relate to the main characters of the Bible and often glossing over the fact that the Bible is written to a people that are underfoot of oppressive, militaristic, super-powerful nations. So America...we need to begin to wrestle with the fact that we aren't Israel we are most likely Babylon.
