Episode 149: Agnostic Awakening

Episode 149: Agnostic Awakening

February 10, 2020

What do you do when you lose your faith? When your questions lead to more questions? What do you do when the temptation to belong outways your pull toward the unknown?

Up until this point, Agnosticism has been a throw away term to define someone who is lost. Someone who is in between. Someone that is waiting to embrace their next certainty. I would like to ask the question, what if Agnosticism is the future of religion? Could our desperate desire for certainty be what is stopping us from truly embracing the divine and letting the spirit move like a winding river through our lives? Will you join us on episode 149 of the Brew Theology Podcast with Ryan, Janel, Sawyer and Josh, as they bring these questions to your curious earbuds? Maybe in that space, and in your own communal spaces, we can find what we are looking for...

P.S. Thanks to Joshua Hoague from Denver for providing the content for this conversation.

Episode 143: Centering Prayer with Eric Peter - Part 2

Episode 143: Centering Prayer with Eric Peter - Part 2

December 17, 2019

On episode 143 of the Brew Theology podcast, Janel Apps Ramsey, Ryan Miller and Mark Donato continue the conversation with Eric Peter on Centering Prayer (Part 1) and more... This tradition was handed on by the Hesychasts of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, in particular by the sixth-century Syrian monk known as Pseudo-Dionysius; Meister Eckhardt, John Ruysbroeck, and the Rhineland mystics in the Middle ages; the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing in the fourteenth century; later by the Carmelite tradition exemplified by Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, and Elizabeth of the Trinity; and in the last century by Thomas Merton. Although traditionally a Christian prayer practice, Centering Prayer welcomes all interested in developing or strengthening their relationship with God. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts a new light and depth of meaning to them. It is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Eric Peter has been studying and practicing a wide range of meditation techniques for almost 20 years. He has been a part of Contemplative Outreach for 15 years and has served as a facilitator of Centering Prayer, a volunteer in the Prison Ministry Program and as a presenter of Introductory Workshops. He has been a Benedictine Oblate since 2014 and makes his living as a bee keeper
