To Vote or Not to Vote?

To Vote or Not to Vote?

November 25, 2019

Seth Price- host of Can I Say This At Church podcast, returns for another recorded conversation and it gets political. We raise and attempt to answer the question: How is Donald Trump a gift? We discuss our views on voting and the government, why it's good, bad, and the reason I no longer vote. I share why the influence of Jacques Ellul led me to discern that voting is just not the way for me to advance the Kingdom. Seth presents an alternative to voting and discusses why Trump is not a gift, but a danger to our country.
Dirty Democrats, Trump draining the swamp, a bad pronunciation of AOC, and why Truth Hurts my Face.

Seth Price is a husband, father, and podcast host. He is unashamedly a sushi virgin.

Check out Seth's bio.

In the fall of 2017 an idea was born but it had been growing for so much longer than that, and that idea was the Can I Say This At Church Podcast. Here's the story:

A group of friends (mostly from College) gathered, talked, argued, and debated everything from politics to Jesus and why the Patriots ALWAYS get the call! I realized soon (thanks social media!) that we were not a minority and so many others were having these same conversations; or not having them and just leaving the Church altogether.

And so, after roughly ten years of deconstructing, reconstructing, rinse- wash-repeat. Something resembling a new faith and a new passion for Jesus emerged; and this pocast is the outpouring of that. Each week a new episode will go live with a guest; or to frame it better, someone that can hopefully help give us new ideas and thoughts to chew on as we grow and stretch our faith.

Cyclical Chaos

Cory joins Danielle on this episode and the couple discusses the latest round of infighting and argumentation. Does a change in the season effect our relationships? Does a change in the season affect our transformation? How do we deal with seasons of change, the season of spending, shopping, holidays, and the lack of sunshine?

Stay Out of the Ditches

Stay Out of the Ditches

November 12, 2019

On this episode, Dan Kent joins the conversation. Filmed on location at Woodland Hills Church in Maplewood, Minnesota, Danielle meets Dan for a mini-tour of the church, a renovated K-Mart building, and the two sit down for an intimate conversation about Dan’s latest book: Confident Humility: Becoming Your Full Self without Becoming Full of Yourself. Dan discusses his concept of the ditches; the Ditch of Smallness and the Ditch of Bigness. The conversation leads to an appreciation for the Principle of Proportionality, a theory introduced by Senior Pastor of Woodland Hills and theologian, Dr. Greg Boyd. Dan breaks down his view of the Bad Robot society we are seduced by, how social media impacts our connections, and how we are being programmed to be “numb brains floating gently down algorithmic content streams.” Danielle asks Dan how we can inject more sexuality into sermons. Dan suggests that Seminary courses should offer classes on Money, Power, and Sex. Danielle asks Dan: why criticism is a gift and Dan shares why he believes he doesn’t grow from praise.

 

 

Daniel Kent (@thatdankent) was born to a 14 year old mother in the humorless tundra of Northern Minnesota. He went to college to figure out if God exists and taught his first college course when he was 25. He wrote his first novel when he was 12 (a nature adventure story, hand-written on 20 sheets of loose-leaf paper and sent off to New York for publication. Unfortunately, the publishing company was "not considering material of this type at this time").

Due to a chronic tendency to underestimate the difficulty of a task, combined with a spirit of stubborn determination, Daniel decided to learn programming and created 420fables.com. Realizing he was a lousy programmer, he returned to his love of writing and his first book ("The Training of KX12") has been a surprise hit.

He is the editor in chief (and occasional contributor) for Greg Boyd's blog ReKnew.org and is the host of the wildly popular podcast: "Greg Boyd: Apologies & Explanations."

Under the Mango Tree

Under the Mango Tree

October 29, 2019

Paul Thomas Darilek  joins the conversation and we talk about his upcoming book: The Butterflies in God’s Stomach. This episode’s discussion include Paul’s back story, understanding how we can integrate the love story into nature, and what it was like to be in the recent presence of Oscar Romero. We also discuss how the church is going through a transformation and with that, there is a need for works that speak to a similar idea, which includes diversity in the expression of God’s love, such as revealed in Paul’s upcoming works.

 

Paul studied English Literature in college, then disappeared into the mountains of Central America. 

In a tiny rural Salvadoran village called Tierra Nueva, he farmed beans and started a Bible study group with his neighbors under the shade of a mango tree. Under that mango tree is where his lifelong fascination with the Bible’s love story began. 

Finding himself in that love story, and getting engaged, Paul went on the road as a storyteller, raised money, and trained a team of Salvadoran friends to start a non-profit ministry that partners with churches, schools, and clinics to help them provide safe drinking water in their communities. He went on to help Living Water International do the same around the world, then resigned to write full time as a freelancer and an aspiring artist aiming to help himself and others find ourselves in a love story, and get engaged

Paul lives in San Antonio, Texas with his wife and two kids.

Part 3 is the final installment of this series in which Cordell Winrow shares his perspective.

Danielle and Cordell discuss what it would look like if Christians started walking all that talking they do. "Lies that stick" iare the ideologies that cause us to remove Christ as our center. Cordell shares his views on orthopraxy vs. theology, which then leads deep into a rabbit hole of alchemy as a Christian concept and why Christianity is about magic. From there, the conversation heads toward the idea of Oneness w/nature.

The Erotic Translation- Dedicated to the Bible Scholars

The Erotic Translation- Dedicated to the Bible Scholars

September 16, 2019

In this episode, Cory interviews Danielle and asks "What the Facebook?"
Danielle discusses why she is compelled to speak and write to Eros through a theological lens, even if Cory thinks theology is a waste of time.  
This conversations reveals the way the couple finds a way to hold in tension a difference of opinion in regard to academe and scholarly works from the Bible. Intellectual snobbery is also addressed, along with why people push so hard against new ideas and concepts regarding love and eros. The discussion continues with ideas about words and the meanings we attach to them, whether or not they hold power, as Derrida submitted, and what it means to just be present and listen to another. Everyone just wants to know they matter. Also, the couple addresses the allegation that they suffer from what Danielle has coined as "Erotic dysfunction."
