Reading & Contemplation | "Holy Envy" with Barbara Brown Taylor

The Weight

We are excited to welcome Barbara Brown Taylor to The Weight for a conversation about hospitality and being in the center and being at the edge of a religion--how is it different when you’re the outsider versus when you’re on the inside? How do you let people who believe in something completely different strengthen your own faith? Barbara leaned into these lessons when she taught a Religion 101 class at Piedmont College, now Piedmont University, in Georgia. She got to watch the real love and hospitality of Buddhist monks and Muslim Imams who “welcomed a bunch of awkward strangers, and fed us, and showed us where to sit and gave us places of honor and thanked us for coming.” And in return, she was able to deepen her own faith and extend hospitality and love to the others in her own life. She used her experiences teaching that course to write Holy Envy, which was published in 2019.Barbara Brown Taylor is an Episcopal priest, teacher, and the best-selling.

A Subsistence Spirituality, with Barbara Brown Taylor

The Evolving Faith Podcast

In our first episode of season 2, Barbara Brown Taylor discusses the realities of spiritual wilderness and asks us to consider what it looks like to have a faith lean enough to survive. She explains that a true wilderness means coming to the end of our perceived safety and learning that we’ve never really had any guarantees all along. Barbara says that grief is necessary for the vitality of the soul and asks us to imagine what subsistence spirituality would mean in our own wilderness. Then Jeff and Sarah discuss the unforeseen ways grief has impacted our lives since this talk was given at the 2019 conference and the beauty of a lean spirituality that can carry us through loss.

Attentiveness from the Farm with Barbara Brown Taylor

Leading Theologically

Best-selling author, profound teacher, and highly sought preacher and Episcopal priest, Barbara Brown Taylor talks about “COVID (as) essentially turn(ing) us into a nation of shut-ins. I've had a lot of time to reflect on what happens to identity (especially, perhaps, ministerial identity) during such a long period of social isolation, disembodied meetings (including worship), limited travel, diminished physical activity, and the unavoidable nearness of death. It's like we've all gotten some practice in old age no matter what age we are, bringing up parallels with retirement and Sabbath practice for me. The connection to the farm is about how I have grounded myself during this time--literally--by giving my attention more fully to the rhythms and realities of the created world. My center of gravity has shifted very noticeably.” Join me for this plain yet quotable and gracious conversation with a preachers-preacher, Barbara Brown Taylor.
