Episode 232: Voices Other Than Our Own, Part Six--Rachel Held Evans

Crazy Faith Talk

In this final episode of their series highlighting voices of faith from outside their individual particular faith traditions, pastors Sarah, Erica, and Steve look at the contemporary voice of the late Rachel Held Evans, who made a profound impact on many millennial and Gen-Z Christians even though she only had the chance to write a few books before a reaction to medication took her life.  As a former journalist who grew up in the town famous for the Scopes Monkey Trial, Rachel Held Evans brought a sharp and insightful mind that helped other Christians to look at why they believe what they believe, what things the Bible actually says, and what things people have just been told or assumed the Bible says.  Her approach to faith has made it safe for people to ask questions, to seek to become more loving, to live in the tension of the paradoxes and mystery of faith, and to rediscover what it means to be a "woman of valor" who lifts up others and amplifies the voices of others.  Hers is definitely a voice worth listening to, and if you're not familiar with her, we'd invite you to get an introduction here in this episode of Crazy Faith Talk!

Her Story (Series) Part 2, Rachel Held Evans

Emmaus Road Sermons

Sermon Scripture: Genesis 32:22-32 (NRSV) The namesake of God’s covenant people is that they wrestled with God in the same way their forefather had. To have an “Israelite” faith did not mean to be certain about all your beliefs about God; it meant to wrestle honestly with those beliefs. You see this throughout the biblical narrative, particularly in the Old Testament! In 2007, Rachel Held Evans started a blog where she wrote about her questions, doubts, and changing beliefs. As it turned out, questions and doubts defined much of Rachel’s life. She exemplified an “Israelite” faith, and just like her ancient brothers and sisters, her questions were a sign of faithfulness. They meant she took God seriously. Her doubts meant that she was genuine in her faith, no matter how uncertain. “Whether you are part of a church or not, whether you believe today or your doubt, whether you are a Christian or an atheist or an agnostic…you know this truth deep in your bones: “Remember that you are dust and to dust you will return. Death is a part of life. My prayer for you this season is that you make time to celebrate that reality, and to grieve that reality, and that you will know you are not alone.” -Rachel Held Evans Further Reading: https://rachelheldevans.com

S1E4: Faith, Science, Humility: Rachel Held Evans, Francis Collins, and Ed Larson

Tokens with Lee C. Camp

The supposed conflict between faith and science, as typified in the debate between fundamentalist Christianity and the theory of evolution, turns out to be hiding some skeletons in its closet. This episode explores some crucial unknowns, and breaks down some false dichotomies, in conversations on site of the famed Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee with Pulitzer prize-winning author Ed Larson and celebrated activist and author Rachel Held Evans (who tragically passed away in 2019), as well as an interview at Pepperdine University with Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health.  Find links to videos and photos from our show at the Rhea County Courthouse, along with historical photos and other helpful links on the episode page at www.tokensshow.com/blog/s1e4See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
