Episode 138: Personal (Historical) Jesus

Episode 138: Personal (Historical) Jesus

September 10, 2019

Rabbi? Essene? Zealot? Was Jesus an apocalyptic prophet, charismatic healer, cynic philosopher or a prophet of social change? What did his followers mean by “Messiah?” Did the “The Son of Man” fail? Did his followers conjure up an epic story that changed the world? There have been countless debates regarding this 1st Century Jewish sage. The quest for the historical Jesus has been a rigorous academic pursuit since the 18th Century; the list of questions and brewtastic rabbit trails go on… and so will this zesty conversation on episode 138 of the Brew Theology Podcast!

Episode 137: Reforming Western Stereotypes of Buddhism with Kaitlyn Masher-Mace (Part 2)

Episode 137: Reforming Western Stereotypes of Buddhism with Kaitlyn Masher-Mace (Part 2)

September 2, 2019

In episode 137 (part 2 of 2) Ryan, Janel and Elizabeth continue their convo with guest, *Kaitlyn Mascher-Mace on "Reforming Western Stereotypes of Buddhism: A Look at Violence in the Buddhist World."

The generalized narrative towards Buddhism(s) in the west have often divorced cultural history from the teachings. What is left is an idealized form of Buddhism, often without context, devoid of the causes and conditions which shaped the teachings that are part of the Buddhist world today. However, explicit and implicit violence have always been part of the Buddhist experience. This conversation will be a brief introduction to these realities.

*Kaitlyn got lost on her way to the oilfield, or maybe she found herself (so her wife says). A 2006 graduate of the Colorado School of Mines (BSc - Mechanical Engineering), Kaitlyn spent many years in oilfields across the world working in rock mechanics and fracture theory. While the rocks had much to say, her coworkers often had views on the world that were varied and far different from hers, driving her to learn more about people, and how faith affects their lives.
Kaitlyn is currently a Ministers Assistant at the Tri-State Denver Buddhist Temple and is a Jodo Shinshu Buddhism seminary student, working on a Masters of Buddhist Studies from the Institute of Buddhist Studies in Berkeley, California. She also starts the Masters of Divinity Program at Iliff School of Theology in the Fall. When she is not in school, she is a 911 Ambulance Paramedic (a different study on human nature) in Weld County, Colorado. She is also an athlete, and a member of the 2013, 2014, and 2015 National Champion Denver Bulldogs Australian Rules Football Team, as well as a former Team USA member.
