Barbara Brown Taylor: Religion, Curiosity and Holy Envy

On the Way Podcast

What happens when we accept the invitation to investigate all the wonder around us? Certainty about what we believe can get in the way of the kind of “holy envy” that opens us to new ways of seeing as we engage with other traditions. Barbara Brown Taylor joins Peter, Sue and Dom to cultivate our curiosity about other religions and spiritual practices, renew our commitment to loving one another and explore how our dualisms keep coming back to haunt us. This curious path can gift us with great spiritual treasures even as we learn more about our own beloved tradition. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Ep. 10 Leaning into the Cycles of Darkness and Light, with Barbara Brown Taylor

Psalms for the Spirit

Today’s guest is Barbara Brown Taylor – author, speaker, Episcopal priest, retired professor, and all-around-delightful person. Barbara Brown Taylor has long been a highly regarded preacher, and she has written a number of compelling books on the spiritual life, including Altar in the World, Holy Envy, and Learning to Walk in the Dark. In this conversation, we talk about the bird psalms, the bed psalms, and the difficult psalms, and we muse together on what they tell us about our humanity and how God sees us in that. We reflect on making friends with the dust, living gratefully on the earth, celebrating our place in the line of people who come before and after us, and leaning into the cycles of darkness and light, death and new life.   Celtic Psalms (Kiran Young Wimberly & the McGraths) music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube Celtic Psalms songs featured in this episode:Come Spirit Come (Psalm 144/The King's Shilling) How Lovely (Psalm 84/Carrickfergus)By the Waters (Psalm 137/Emigrant’s Farewell)You Have Turned My Sorrow (Psalm 30/Green Grows the Laurel)CDs and published notations can be found through GIA music More about Barbara Brown Taylor:https://barbarabrowntaylor.com

Barbara Brown Taylor: Silence, Vulnerability, and Love (Part One)

Encountering Silence

A while back, our co-host Carl McColman was impressed by a preacher he heard in Atlanta. In his words: Back in the spring of 1988, I was living in Atlanta and on occasion would worship at All Saints’ Episcopal Church near the campus of Georgia Tech. On more than one occasion, I was impressed by the preaching of one of the associate priests on staff, the Reverend Barbara Brown Taylor. I never joined that church, and I don’t know that I ever even spoke to Taylor, but I remembered her — so that when, almost a decade later, Baylor University published a list of the 12 most effective preachers in the United States, I was not surprised to see Barbara Brown Taylor on the list. Barbara Brown Taylor went from "renowned preacher" to "best-selling author" when her memoir about leaving parish ministry to become a college professor, Leaving Church, was met with widespread acclaim. Subsequent books like An Altar in the World, Learning to Walk in the Dark, and Holy Envy have all earned places on the New York Times Bestseller list. In 1997 she delivered a series of lectures on the art of preaching at Yale Divinity School, later published under the title When God is Silent. Her most recent book, Always a Guest, was published in October 2020 by Westminster John Knox Press. Silence is a love language. — Barbara Brown Taylor Barbara Brown Taylor has served on the faculties of Piedmont College, Emory University, Mercer University, Columbia Seminary, Oblate School of Theology, and the Certificate in Theological Studies program at Arrendale State Prison for Women in Alto, Georgia.
