Dr. Robyn Talks Activist Theology

Dr. Robyn Talks Activist Theology

July 23, 2018

Episode 31 - Today we talk about the activist element to God Talk with Rev. Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza! As an anti-oppression, anti-racist, non-binary Trans*gressive Latinx, Robyn takes seriously their call as an activist theologian and ethicist to bridge together theories and practices that result in communities responding to pressing social concerns. Robyn sees this work as a life-orienting vocation, deeply committed to translating theory to practice, and embedded in re-imagining our moral horizon to one which privileges a politics of radical difference.

Deconverting and Deconstructing with Barry Taylor

Deconverting and Deconstructing with Barry Taylor

July 8, 2018

Episode 29 - Today you get to listen to a conversation with one of the most interesting people we know: Barry Taylor! Barry Taylor is a theologian-philosopher, musician, artist, academic and writer who has spent more than thirty years challenging traditional notions of religion and church and creating alternative communities built on the idea that life is uncertain, the future is unwritten and that none of us has the answer. Born in the U.K. he recently returned to London after living in Los Angeles for many years.  We talk about the royal wedding, Barry's "religious conversion" experience while on the Highway to Hell tour with AC/DC, his "deconversion" years later, and why everyone seems to be returning to the spirituality conversation in secular society today.
