Episode Info:

For many of us, the charismatic movement has been a mixed bag of bonkers and blessing. The danger is, of course, that we throw the blessed baby out with the bonkers bathwater! Especially for those of us who have been through some kind of deconstruction, we can easily end up rationalising away anything mystical.

So we asked Brad Jersak to help us think all this through. Brad is a member of the Eastern Orthodox Church and is deeply contemplative. But he’s also a charismatic. So we ask him what the charismatic and contemplative traditions can learn from each other, and whether contemplation can help take some of the crazy out of the charismatic. 

If you want more from Nomad, check out our website, and follow us on Facebook and twitter.

Nomad can only keep going because a small group of faithful listeners help us pay the bills. Our donors gain access to the Nomad community, which manifests in such ways as Nomad Book Club, The Beloved Listener Lounge, Nomad Contemplations and Nomad Devotionals. And you may find yourself the proud owner of a Beloved Listener mug! Head over to our Patreon page for more information.

If you're not fussed about the bonus content, you can make a one-off or regular donation through PayPal, the links to which you can find on our support page.

You might also want to have a look at our blog, which we're now using to share the stories of the evolving faith of our podcast guests and listeners. 

And if you're looking for other people to share this journey with, then register on our Listener Map, and see if any other nomads are in your area.
