Episode 43 Gifts of Imperfection

June 26, 2017

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we be able to discover the infinite power of our light.” - Dr. Brene Brown

Brene Brown's 2010 TED talk, "The Power of Vulnerability," is one of the 10 most viewed TED talks online. Brown stumbled into the idea of Wholehearted living as part of her social research on how shame impacts the way people live. She experienced what she refers to as her breakdown/ spiritual awakening. 

In Episode 43 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan, Janel, Meghan, Robb & Stef dive into some vulnerable dialogue dealing with courage, compassion and connection. What does it look like to cultivate a life of authenticity, self-compassion, a resilient spirit, gratitude and joy, intuition and trusting faith, calmness/ stillness, and meaningful work along with laughter, song and dance?

Episode 42: Show Me The $$$: Economic Justice

June 20, 2017

From the Neolithic Revolution (the period in which Hunter-Gatherer proto-societies began domesticating crops and livestock) leading all the way to the present, the political, theological, andeconomic spheres of life have almost always been inseparably entwined with one another. This has proved at times to be incredibly helpful for those who control land and resources, while simultaneously being the cause of great pain and oppression for marginalized communities.

What do you see as the current relationship between our religious, political, and economic leaders? What is different between the structuring of the Egyptian and Roman Empires, and our current political/religious/economic context here in the US?

Episode 39: Holy Grub: Food & Religion

May 30, 2017

In Episode 39 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Holy Grub is served. Janel, Andy, Meghan & Liz brew up an always relvant topic: food and religion. Food and Religion are routinely interwoven into the fabric of cultures. Far from being separate entities, a religion’s perspective of, use of, and beliefs about food and consumption help define norms, practices, and habits surrounding eating, and manifest in a wide range of practices around the world. For instance, Hindu’s reverence of cows helped shape an entire culture of people who revere and protect cattle, often leading to violent cultural clashes between local Muslims for whom cow is one of the few halal – or allowable – types of meat in which to eat. Or, for instance, take the Catholic observance of Lent, which for devotees, encourages an abstinence from red meat at times, while also employing an elaborate metaphor (or is it?) about eating and drinking the flesh and blood of their savior.

All of this and so much more...

Episode 37: Atonement Theories Part 1

May 15, 2017

In episode 37 of the Brew Theology podcast, Ryan, Dan, Alex, Brian and Adam brew up the topic, "Atonement Theories." This is Part 1 of 2 episodes. This show is brought to you by Seedstock Brewery. If you dig this episode and/or other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a share, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!

So, what’s atonement? 

Maybe you’ve heard it best understood by the English, “At – ONE – ment”… meaning humanity being at “one” with the divine ONE! This is a good place to start. I’d add the original Hebrew, “Kaphar,” which is where we get the word, “atone,” literally meaning, “to cover.” This comes from the covering of Israel’s sins on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). Next, theories of Atonement are explanations from scholars over the past 2,000 years who have tired to explain the mystery of what happened to Jesus and this world: past, present and future on the cross!

Many Christians have been taught (Or it’s simply been infused into modern, Western Christianity through sermons and worship songs) only one popular atonement theory. Interestingly, when one does the research, we find that this popular theory wasn’t even in existence within the first 1,000 years of Christianity. Theories are sincere, speculative explanations based on subjective opinions, involving careful intelligence in academia, experience in real time, historical criticism, and a community of good 'ole fashioned “butt kickers."

In episodes 37 and 38, we cover the following:

- Ransom Captive
- Union With God
- Satisfaction
- Penal Substitution
- Christus Victor
- Moral Exemplar
- The Last Scapegoat
- God's Solidarity
