Hilarious animated video from xtranormal. We recommend you watch this as you discern your call… “Seminary will teach you what a lot of dead white men thought about God.”
Speaking of Faith has a recent podcast up on their website under the title: The Art of Peace.
John Paul Lederach describes what really happens when people transcend violence while living in it, and so find the moral imagination to live beyond it. Also, stories you’ve never heard in the news — from Colombia, Nepal, Tajikistan, Sierra Leone, Northern Ireland, and Burma.
Access the program at the Speaking of Faith website.
Episode two of the SCUPE Congress podcast is up for your listening pleasure!
We’re extremely excited about this audio exploration as it is as specific as it is far-reaching. Listen in as we grab the intellectual coat-tails of poet-theologian Jim Perkinson and hang on for dear life. Ah, the places we’ll go! The result is a illuminating romp through the often unmapped, but intricately woven, terrain of art and faith… of culture and religion… of spirituality and materiality.
Art & Faith in a Culture of Violence.
In this episode we celebrate the potency of art in a culture of violence and the peacemaking possibilities of faith as we talk with poet-theologian and author of White Theology: Outing Supremacy in Modernity, Jim Perkinson. We hear spoken word poetry from Jim and a number of other contemporary luminaries including Saul Williams, Billy Collins, and Quincy Troupe.
You can visit the SCUPE podcast library for descriptions and downloadable audio of past podcasts.
Next month we’ll hear from SCUPE President and founding director Dave Frenchak on imagination, prophetic preaching, and the role of hope in theology and the life of the community.
