Permission To BE

Welcome to the second conversation in our series, "The Moment of Now." Happy Pride Month and Juneteenth! In this episode Tommy, Olivia and Becka talk with Dr. Obery Hendricks. This conversation helps to challenge us as we think about the "Left" and the "Right," as we use these terms to stake out political sides, what are we signaling? What does this mean within spiritual communities? "Obery Hendricks is one of the foremost commentators on the intersection of religion and political economy in America. He is the most widely read and perhaps the most influential African American biblical scholar writing today.

Spiritual Directors Talking About Stuff

In this episode, Christopher and Maggie talk to Dr. Obery M. Hendricks about his book Christians Against Christianity: How Right-Wing Evangelicals Are Destroying Our Nation and Our Faith. This conversation was wide-ranging. We talked about everything from what Jesus said is the root of the gospel, abortion, gun rights, and Donald Trump and the January 6 insurrection. Christopher and Maggie are spiritual directors that like talking about spiritual things. Spiritual direction is a listening ministry that creates a sacred space for you to listen to God, see where God is at work in your life, and grow in awareness of who you were created to be. We would love to hear from you! Email Christopher and Maggie at SDTASinfo@gmail.com.  Resources mentioned in this episode:  Christians Against Christianity by Dr. Obery M.
