Optimism is Cool Again
About This Show
A Biweekly podcast from The Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey. Twice a month, we'll talk with priests, thought leaders, authors and more about what's going on in our communities, our country, and our world from a uniquely Episcopal perspective. No prior experience necessary--along the way, we'll bring us all up to speed on the deep traditions and modern outlook of The Episcopal Church, and seek ways to be the best, most positive disciples of Jesus Christ we can. We hope you'll join us for this fun ride!
