Melinda Schmidt-episode 253
Melinda Schmidt joins me this week on the podcast to talk about waiting. We’ve been in a difficult year that has been all about waiting. We haven’t done it particularly well as a country or in our churches. As we enter the season of Advent, the very theme of waiting is front and center. I hope you will consider with us how you have been waiting and how we might wait together in this season. We mentioned and recommend The Critical Journey by Janet O. Hagberg and Robert A. Guelich. Also mentioned and read is the poem Patient Trust by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability— and that it may take a very long time. And so I think it is with you; your ideas mature gradually—let them grow, let them shape themselves, without undue haste. Don’t try to force them on, as though you could be today what time (that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own good will) will make of you tomorrow. Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be. Give Our Lord the benefit of believing that his hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete. —Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ excerpted from Hearts on Fire Find Melinda in these places: • Facebook • Twitter • Instagram Note: When clicking through on links to products on Amazon, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

Kathy Escobar-episode 251
Kathy Escobar is a favorite guest of mine. She is copastor of The Refuge, a Christian community and mission in North Denver, and a trained spiritual director. I’ve talked to her on the podcast about her books Faith Shift and Practicing. This time we focus on a new advent devotional Kathy has penned that helps us honor our struggles during the holidays. The devotional is titled, A Weary World: Reflections for a Blue Christmas. Kathy has been leading her church community through “Blue Christmas” experiences for nearly a decade, and just experienced her bluest season of all following the sudden death of her son. 2020 has been a year of struggle for most. I think all will identify with this week’s conversation.

AJ Sherrill-episode 247
AJ Sherrill joins me on the podcast this week to talk about The Enneagram for Spiritual Formation: How Knowing Ourselves Can Make Us More Like Jesus. Maybe you’ve never heard of the Enneagram or maybe everywhere you turn these days you are hearing about the enneagram. It has become a popular tool for self-awareness and improvement as well as spiritual growth. Author, pastor, and speaker AJ Sherrill takes the Enneagram a bit further and reimagines it as a discipleship tool and an entree to spiritual practices.

Rich Villodas-episode 245
Five years ago to the day, I began Faith Conversations! I’m now 245 episodes in and I hope I’ve exceeded expectations This week’s episode introduces a new voice to me and likely to some of you—Rich Villodas. Rich is the lead pastor of New Life Fellowship, a large multiracial church in Elmhurst, Queens. He is Brooklyn-born and follows founding pastor Pete Scazzero into the spot of lead pastor at New Life Fellowship. Rich’s book, The Deeply Formed Life: Five Transformative Values to Root Us in the Way of Jesus, is a relevant read at this time in our history. Written before 2020 hit, it provides a good framework for living in our current crazy climate and culture. I know you’ll enjoy our conversation as we unpack Contemplative Rhythms, Racial Justice, and Interior Examination.

Melinda Schmidt-episode 244
Melinda and me – 2016 My good friend and wonderful conversation partner, Melinda Schmidt, joins me on the podcast this week. We spend time talking about whether or not we can trust ourselves. Many of us have grown up with the verse Jeremiah 17:9 thrown at us about our heart being deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Author, speaker, and therapist Alison Cook challenges that thought and says we’ve taken that verse out of context, used it to proof text. What does trusting ourselves look like and how do we trust both God and ourselves? It’s an enlightening conversation on this week’s Faith Conversations. Here is Alison Cook’s post that we use as the springboard for our conversation.

Jemar Tisby-episode 243
Jemar Tisby joins me on the podcast this week as we talk about his book The Color of Compromise. In our unfolding conversation, we talk about the American church and how it’s been complicit in racism through history. We also dialog about how there has been some progress in fighting racism but that the church has often failed to speak out against this evil. I highly recommend the book that is a story-driven survey of American Christianity’s racial past. John Lustrea joins in the conversation and brings his knowledge of history to the table as a Civil War scholar.

Jared Byas joins me on the podcast this week. My son John is in the cohost chair as we talk with Jared about his brand new release Love Matters More: How Fighting to Be Right Keeps Us from Loving Like Jesus. What does living the Christian life actually look like? Being right isn’t in the definition, contrary to what some believe. Jared, popular host of the podcast The Bible for Normal People, builds the case for how a biblical Christian life is grounded not in collecting the “right” answers but in authentic, living relationships, with God and with others.

Melinda & Kelly Schmidt-episode 241
On this week’s Faith Conversations, Melinda Schmidt joins me along with her daughter Kelly. It’s always instructive looking at Scriptural stories through the eyes of different generations. We take a look at the story of Eve. It’s a story well worth reading again if it’s been a while for you. Take a look at Genesis 1:15 – 4:1. We draw on thoughts from a variety of books. These are the books mentioned on the podcast: Untamed by Glennon Doyle, What Do We Do With the Bible, by Richard Rohr, In the Sanctuary of Women, by Jan Richardson, Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes, by Kenneth E.

Brenda Salter McNeil-episode 240
Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil joins me on the podcast this week as we talk about her powerful new book Becoming Brave: Finding the Courage to Pursue Racial Justice Now. Dr. McNeil says that reconciliation is not true reconciliation without justice! In the course of our conversation she tells parts of her own story and encourages us to move from passivity into action. She does this through the lens of the biblical narrative of Esther. As she walks us through the story of this fascinating character it becomes evident that we cannot remain silent but also need courage to step into the work of repairing broken systems so we can move toward reconciliation.

John Lustrea & Mike Murphy-episode 238
John Lustrea and Mike Murphy join me once again to discuss a set of Mike Murphy’s Rumblings. We discuss the ones from 8/7/20. We talk about ritual and intention in life, protesting during the national anthem, decision makers and faith leaders as well as all those making impossible decisions about the start of a new school year. We mentioned the Frederick Douglas Historic Home, and an article about Meyers Leonard and the NBA. Find Mike here – Facebook Find John here – National Museum of Civil War Medicine Mike’s Rumblings from 8/7/20 See this on Facebook Rumblings.8.7.20 1. I’m drawn to decision makers willing to prepare us, not for the world that used to be, but rather for the world that is unfolding before us. I’m growing weary of leaders eager to rush us back to a ‘normal’ that no longer exists. It’s particularly discouraging watching pastors using ‘coming back to church’ as the true measure of what a ‘faithful life’ looks like. Some even use ‘faith’ as the magic wand that’s going to protect them and their flock from the virus. It’s sinful what they are doing. They’re turning God into a trinket deity and putting people at risk. Faith leaders I admire aren’t asking God to do tricks and not using ‘coming back’ as the litmus test of authentic faith. Instead, they are ministering to their people in amazing ways and considering the health restraints we’re under and will be under for a while, are doing a bang-up job. 2. Being mostly retired demands constructing a meaningful routine. My day starts with reading Heather Cox Richardson, good chunks of WAPO, NYT, and the Sarasota Herald Tribune. That’s followed by a devotional time, then exercise.The day ends with prayer, journaling, and listening to music. The in between time is filled with conversations with Anita, meeting with spiritual direction clients, reading, watching news programs, maybe a nap, errands, keeping up with friends, twiddling my thumbs, etc.. All this helps keep me sane. It’s enough structure but not too much. It’s actually a Benedictine construct stressing a healthy rhythm of prayer, work, relationships, and rest. It works. 3.In recent days as the national anthem played, many professional athletes knelt, while others stood. Reasons for either standing or kneeling were hashed out by teammates and coaches in what must have been somewhat intense but fruitful discussions. That’s as it should be in America. Perhaps this is a sign that our understanding of patriotism is maturing a bit and that matters of justice are being more thoughtfully considered. 4.”We shall come one day to a heaven where we shall gratefully know that God’s great refusals were sometimes the true answers to our truest prayers.” ~ P.T. Forsythe, The Soul of Prayer “O Lord, you know what is best for me. Give what you will, how much you will, and when you will.”~ Thomas à Kempis “Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving—it doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, and come yet again, come, come.”~ Rumi 5. What would happen if we actually believed that being in the presence of God is the ‘more’ we’ve been searching for? 6.John Lewis’s funeral reminded me that those who manage to live with a functioning moral compass are the real difference makers. 7. Trevor Noah said he had predicted the trajectory of Trump’s time in office several years ago when he compared the president to an African dictator. “People acted like I was crazy, but this is how it starts…First, they just suggest that maybe you postpone the election, then they suggest that some of the votes are not valid, and pretty soon they’re saying, ‘You know what’s really unfair? That there are two political parties. Why are there two political parties? Let’s just have one. Then, you don’t have to worry about making all these decisions anymore.” ~ NY Times … Last week Trump announced he was pulling troops out of Germany which was a petty act, disturbing to all our allies, and is being looked at as a tip of the hat to Putin, a dictator. Not good. Even more troubling, was his dog whistle announcement alerting white suburban folks that they need not worry any longer about poor and/or people of color moving into their neighborhood with the help of a government subsidy. With a stroke of the pen he was delivering them from the horror of that possibility. Really not good. And let’s not forget his ongoing assertion that making it easier for people to vote will not be of benefit to him and other Republicans. Thus his opposition to mail in voting, except in Florida, where he thinks it might be helpful to him. Ah, he hit the ‘not good’ trifecta. Lord, deliver us from this evil. 8.“Wherever there is something in our life that is not conformed to the image of Christ, there is a place where we are incapable of being all God wants us to be with others … a place where our life with others is hindered and limited and restricted in its effectiveness and in its fullness … a place where our life will tend to become disruptive and even destructive to others. We can never be all God wants us to be with others as long as that point of unlikeness to the image of Christ exists within us.” ~ M. Robert Mulholland, Jr. I stand convicted. 9. More than ever what we say and how we say it matters. It’s the thoughtful word, the considered response, and the clarifying question that wins the day. 10.My daughter is a school superintendent. She loves her job. She loves the people she serves with and is always saying wonderful things about the students in her district and their parents. These days talking with her is sobering. The choices available to her as the school year approaches are difficult. None will fully please everyone. Perhaps it behooves us all to pray for all those in education who are carrying staggering weights upon their shoulders. There is so much at stake. So many valid yet competing concerns are in play.

Mike Murphy & John Lustrea-episode 237
Mike Murphy and John Lustrea join me on the podcast this week to talk through Mike’s Rumblings from 07-31-20. John never thinks I ask good enough follow-up questions so I asked him to join us and have a go! We talked about Peter Greig’s book God on Mute as well as Heather Cox Richardson’s daily blog you can sign up for. John mentioned a new favorite podcast of his from NPR called Throughline. Find Mike: • Facebook Find John: • Museum of Civil War Medicine • Facebook Mike’s Rumblings 07-31-20 See this on Facebook Rumblings. 7.31.20 1.Me: Do you think I’m made in the image and likeness of God? Anita: Technically yes, but right now you’re more like an unfinished sculpture, a little rough around the edges. Me: So, you’re saying “I have flaws?” Anita: Everyone does. Me: Do I have many? Anita: No. Me: How many? Anita: 57 Me: Seriously? Anita: I’m sorry. I misspoke. 58, not 57. I forgot about ‘argumentative’. 2.The picture of the horse drawn caisson carrying John Lewis’s body over the Edmund Pettus Bridge wrecked me. Trump’s choice to not pay his respects to Lewis spoke volumes about both his character and the values he champions. It’s not a surprise. Lewis was not Trump’s kind of guy. Lewis fought against voter suppression, Trump is OK with it as long as he benefits. Lewis put his life on the line for freedom. Trump tweets his admiration for autocratic leaders. Lewis was a man of deep faith. Trump awkwardly holds “a bible”. Lewis battled against white supremacists. Trump cheers them on. They do have one thing in common. Each will be remembered by history. But only one will be remembered for his goodness, perseverance, and courage. 3.“Authentic spirituality is always first about you—about allowing your own heart and mind to be changed. It’s about getting your own ‘who’ right. Who is it that is doing the perceiving? Is it your illusory, separate, false self; or is it your True Self, who you are in God?” ~ Richard Rohr Oftentimes my perceptions of God, of others, of our world are a bit warped because the ‘me’ who’s looking at these things is not at all like the ‘me’ God intended me to be. Not even close. 4.“In 14 tweets, Trump undermined Dr. Fauci, dismissed face masks and boasted about hydroxychloroquine working again. What is he doing? Even Flat Earthers think this guy is out of his mind.” ~Jimmy Fallon “But, yes, despite having the world’s top doctors at his disposal, Trump has decided instead to trust a doctor who believes that people get sick because they masturbate and that vaccines are made from alien DNA.” ~Trevor Noah “Here’s an easy way to figure out if you’re in a cult: If you’re wondering whether you’re in a cult, the answer is yes.” ~ Stephen Colbert 5. In 1945, in a basement believed to be the hiding place of a Jew, this graffiti was found on the wall. “I believe in the sun even when it isn’t shining I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when he is silent.” These words speak to a true and honest faith. How much gut wrenching struggle and questioning preceded the scratching of those words on that wall? 6.Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher What with the pandemic, the absurdity of our politics, and with the uncertain economic climate it is no surprise that courage is often in a tug of war with our fear. Fear is a powerful force. It roars. Even courage needs a respite from it. It’s not surrender, just a recharge. 7. “…Minneapolis police say that the man dressed in black carrying an umbrella who helped to spark the violence in the city after the death of George Floyd …has been identified as a white supremacist intent on inciting violence. So-called “umbrella man” was caught on video smashing windows near the site of Floyd’s murder, starting a wave of fires and looting. He is allegedly a 32-year-old member of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang and has been linked to confrontation last month with a Muslim woman in a Minneapolis suburb.” ~ Heather Cox Richardson It’s the rise of white supremacy groups, coupled with the high level cover they are given, that scares me the most. 8. God believes in me and loves me. My picture is on His refrigerator door. There is nothing that can keep God from believing in me or loving me. My picture is never going to be taken down. Coming to grips with this truth has taken the better part of 70 years. 9.“…we cannot see what we aren’t told to look for. For most of history, Christians glossed over the presence of the women at Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. We weren’t wrong; we were simply paying attention to what we were told to look at—the men—by other men (priests, theologians, and even the Gospel writers themselves). We skipped over the faithfulness of the women and focused instead on the faithlessness (and the Easter morning foot race) of the men. Mary Magdalene and the other women were the first witnesses to the resurrection because they remained present for the entire process, from death unto new life, exactly what is necessary to witness resurrections in our own lives as well.” ~ Richard Rohr Rohr makes it a habit to remind me that it’s quite OK to rethink what I’ve always been taught and then prayerfully consider and even argue on behalf of the opposite of that teaching. Do this and all kinds of interesting things start happening. 10. Peter Grieg in his book “God On Mute” talks about the psalms, to which I am greatly attracted (Psalm 19 has grabbed me hard recently). Greig says this: “ Many of the Psalms…bristle with disgruntled prayers …They are filled with expressions of grief, lament, anger, and even doubt. The Hebrew Testament scholar Walter Brueggeman calls them “psalms of disorientation”. Bono compares them to the blues. “It’s in his despair,” he says, “that the psalmist really reveals the nature of his special relationship with God. Honesty even to the point of anger…” How many of our prayers are bluesy enough to be considered honest? Probably not enough of them. Read Psalm 88 to see an honest, pleading prayer. The psalmist stands disoriented before God, without pretense or filter, pleading for the God of all comfort to find him.
