Episode 59: Sikhism with Dilpreet Jammu

November 13, 2017

Though it is the world's 5th largest religion, very few Americans know anything about the Sikh faith. It's time to get educated and see the modern-day relevance in this rich religion. Ryan and Janel have the honor of speaking with Dilpreet Jammu in episode 59 of the Brew Theology Podcast. Dilpreet is the founder of Colorado Sikhs and has served with the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado since 2013.

Enjoy and cheers, friends!

Episode 53: Power of Proximity Part 2 with Michelle Warren

September 24, 2017

"We can see evidence of injustice all around us, whether in continuing incidents of racial inequality or in the systemic forces that disenfranchise people and perpetuate poverty. It's important to learn about the world's inequities and to be a voice for the voiceless any way we can. But in an age of hashtag and armchair activism, merely raising awareness about injustice is not enough. Michelle Warren knows what is needed. She and her family have chosen to live in communities where they are "proximate to the pain of the poor." This makes all the difference in facing and overcoming injustice. When we build relationships where we live, we discover the complexities of standing with the vulnerable and the commitment needed for long-term change. Proximity changes our perspective, compels our response, and keeps us committed to the journey of pursuing justice for all. Move beyond awareness and experience the power of proximity." - Michelle Warren* (Power of Proxmity)

This is Part 2 of 2 with Michelle Warren talking about her latest book, Power of Proxmity. Janel, Ken, Rob and Ryan had a great time recording this show with Michelle. Enjoy episode #53 of the Brew Theology Podcast...  & cheers, friends!

Episode 50: Culture, Worldview & Difference with Dr. Tink Tinker

September 3, 2017

Episode 50 of the Brew Theology Podcast features Dr. Tink Tinker, Ph.D. (wazhazhe/Osage Nation)
Baldridge Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions - Iliff School of Theology. After this episode, I encourage you to sit down with some friends and talk about the following quesitons (in a pub would be nice!). What is the difference Tinker posits between worldview and ideology? How then would each of these impact the development of language in a socio-political whole? Are people really able to choose their worldview? Or are they really only choosing between ideologies (without demeaning the importance of this later)? How big is the range of “difference” within what Tinker identifies as the euro-christian worldview? Is it possible for two disparate worldviews to find an amicable balance within any given socio-political whole? Have we not often enough found it difficult enough for differing ideologies to live side by side? Say marxism and euro-christian, democratic capitalism? If the choice is between an up-down hierarchical schema of reality and the collateral-egalitarian model Tinker identifies as the traditional Native model, what might be the benefits of each? The benefits of the colonialist model for Native communities? The benefits of the egalitarian model for White settler folk? How does one determine “truth” when it comes to determining whose worldview ought to dominate a socio-political whole? Finally, what then is God?

This is a great episode, and we are proud to send it to your earbuds, friends.
