As promised, 2014 has brought a new Eco-Theology series called “Home
Brewed Grown Christianity” all about-earth care and lovin’ God. It has grown into an 8 part series including a TNT follow-up to the initial run of interviews that begin today.
Episode 1: Leah Kostamo Planted: A Story of Creation, Calling, and Community Kindle ($9.99) Paperback ($17.99)
Episode 2: Matthew Sleeth Serve God Save The Planet , The Gospel According to the Earth & 24/6 about Sabbath. (Kindle $2.99)
Episode 3: Jennifer Butler is part of the new Christian Earthkeeping emphasis at George Fox Seminary. She is co-author of the upcoming book On Earth As In Heaven due out in November.
Episode 4: Randy Woodley with Shalom and the Community of Creation: an Indigenous Vision
Episode 5: John Cobb rang the alarm bell back in 1972 and has recently returned to the theme with Spiritual Bankruptcy: a prophetic call to action.
Episode 6: is a special surprise from new Elder Micky Jones and friend.
Episode 7: is specifically food related. How do get food on the table? What issues are related to feeding a family?
Episode 8: at the the end of each episode, we ask our guest the same 5 questions. Tripp and I are dedicating a TNT to interacting with their answers to the those 5 questions. It will be in the same format that we did the Brueggemann-Fretheim Bible Bash.
You may also want to pick up Colonialism, Han, and the Transformative Spirit by Grace Ji-Sun Kim. Her HBC interview with Callid was so good that I sort of wish it had been a part of this series! I hope to return to Dr. Kim’s thoughts to close this initial run.
I attended part of planning meeting yesterday related to next year’s big Whitehead conference. The theme is “Seizing An Alternative: Toward An Ecological Civilization” based on a new essay by John Cobb. I am greatly inspired about this HomeGrown series and am very aware of the intensity of the situation we are facing.
I hope that you will join us on this audiological journey and that you will chime in on the blogs as they roll out over the next 40 days.
I want to thank Jesse Turri for the collection of logos for the series. If you have not heard Jesse’s work on the Unfolded podcast (with collaborator Matt Barlow) you really need to check it out!
