W. David O. Taylor-episode 216

 

David Taylor was just what the doctor ordered for Faith Conversations this week. During these unprecedented days of the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic, a dive into the Psalms through the teaching of David Taylor, assistant professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary was a comfort and a joy. I think you will really enjoy our conversation that centers around his book Open and Unafraid: The Psalms as a Guide to Life.

Remember the amazing video of Eugene Peterson and Bono talking about the Psalms. You know who the mastermind and question-asker was? Yup, W. David O. Taylor! David has me diving into a Psalm a day and maybe you’ll join me. I read a wonderful paraphrase of a Psalm, either from The Message, or Psalms Now, or Psalms for Praying, then a translation of the same Psalm and take time to meditate or…Read More

Good friend, Michelle Van Loon, joins me again on the podcast. We respond to a listener email sent in response to the podcast with Melissa Camara Wilkins. Michelle and I talked about cultural and Christian conditioning we received as women. We also discussed how to handle conflict and how many aren’t prepared or are fearful of engaging in conflict. We delved into boundaries and a few other themes centered in Christian culture.

An enlightening conversation.

Lenten Resources-Episode 210

This week looks a bit different on Faith Conversations. I wanted to remind everyone that the season of Lent is right around the corner. Ash Wednesday 2020 is February 26. On this episode you’ll hear several voices highlighting a variety of Lenten and Holy Week devotionals. This will give you time to order one if you like a resource to walk you through Lent or aid you on your journey. Mike Murphy starts things off as he and I highlight a few that leaped out at us, and then I’m joined by 3 authors who have written new books for this upcoming season.

Katherine Sonderegger joins me first. She and co-author Margaret Adams Parker have written and illustrated Praying the Stations of the Cross: Finding Hope in a Weary Land.
