Your spirituality is dependent upon fire

Fire is a cleansing agent that burns away dead, oppressive, and tyrannical doctrines accumulated over time. Fire is the catalyst to our flourishing.

The cross is a powerful symbol. What does it mean?

  • Are you deconstructing your faith?
    Are you interrogating what you believe and why?
    Are you looking at the impact of your life and faith on the world around you?

 

This is a series of UNLEARNING that engages our head center of intelligence along with stories, art, questions, and resources to activate our heart and gut centers of intelligence as well.

You get to save time on this podcast and learn alongside us as we critically think and engage our experience with The Indigenous People’s History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.

Jill Elizabeth and Shaleen Kendrick explore how origin stories shape our ideas, actions, holidays, and ways we raise our children in this country. How do manifest destiny, the myth of the covenant, Andrew Jackson, and Christian missionaries impact our lives? Come find out.

Kaleidoscopes and the Cross

Here’s the Big Idea…

The ancient narrative of Yahweh (a Hebrew name for God) is a story of created relationships, fragmented relationships, and redeemed relationships. It has been a life-giving story for us, while at the same time, there have been underlying presumptions in our Christian faith that have been destructive. Understanding how we got here––how we came to believe what we believe––has helped A LOT.

We had always heard that we could not pick and choose what we believed if we wanted to be Christians.

Who knew you actually do have the freedom to affirm some aspects of your faith tradition while rethinking or departing from other elements of it?!
