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.
