Who Jesus Is to Us
Episode Summary: We take on one of the big questions of the Christian faith: who is Jesus (to us)? We go back to childhood nativity stories and Easter mornings and bring it to current day, exploring everything we were taught about Jesus the baby, the man, and the divine savior. We talk about theology, pop culture, the pressure to fit in, what salvation is al about, and what it means for us to follow Jesus now (or not).

Reflections and the Year Ahead
We look over the last (nearly) four years of recording, share some of our favorite moments in podcasting and in life, and talk about our plans for 2021. We're going to focus on what we do best: looking at the intersections of faith and feminism. We want to talk aboutJesus and who he is to us, what do we mean when we say Christian supremacy, what does liberation mean for ourselves and for everyone? We want to talk about compassion fatigue and burnout, accountability and cancel culture and leave space for some fun stuff too. Stay tuned. As always, we’d love to hear from you, either on our Instagram (@kindredspodcast), or send us an email at email@example.com.

Embodiment: Waking Up to Our Bodies
"I exist in a body." This sounds so simple, but it's actually something that Ashley and Katey have recently been exploring and owning. Maybe you can relate. Do you feel like you're just a talking head? Do you feel like the only way to know something is in your mind? Were you taught your body wasn't to be trusted? You'll want to tune into our conversation about how to reconnect body + mind + spirit. Full show notes: http://kindredspodcast.com/2020/11/13/episode-52-embodiment-waking-up-to-our-bodies/

Honestly, we tried two other times to record an episode, and we finally got the space and energy to talk about what’s getting us through this ever-changing and wild time. We get real about boundaries, schedules, therapy, lowering our expectations, and being honest with ourselves.

To Our White Listeners
Black Lives Matter. Right now, police brutality, white supremacy, and state-sanctioned militarism are on full display in this country, and we will not be silent. Not now, not ever. We say their names: Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade, and countless others. Their lives matter. And at Kindreds, we are committed to doing the work of anti-racism-- and dismantling white supremacy--in our own lives, in our work as non-profit leaders, and on this show. Let's get to work.

Kindreds Picks: Eloheh Center and The Intuitive Way
On Kindreds Picks, we discuss some of our favorite recommendations that we didn’t have time to get to in our regular episode. Ashley’s Pick: Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice After studying the Lenten guide Drawing Closer to Creator and Creation: And Indigenous Journey Through Lent, Ashley shares about the Eloheh Center, co-founded by Edith and Randy Woodley in 1999 out of concern that neither the government nor the church was addressing the many needs in Native American communities. The Woodleys believe that our response to climate change should be rooted in learning from those who have long practiced a value for creation and listened to the voice of Creator in this area. For decades, Randy and Edith Woodley have cultivated Eloheh as a community, farm, seed bank, and learning center. For over 30 years, the Woodleys have been teaching Native and non-Native peoples to deepen their commitment to preserving humanity’s role as good earth-keepers by understanding Creator’s invitation to harmony and shalom. Through their summits, camps, ceremony, conferences and teachings, the Woodleys offer an opportunity for all to learn a new way to live on the land and respond to the climate crisis. Learn more at eloheh.org. Katey’s Pick: The Intuitive Way by Penney Pierce Similar in style to The Artist's Way, The Intuitive Way is a workbook with lessons and exercises designed to help you hone in in on and develop your inner wisdom. It has questions to journal, meditations to practice, and free writing prompts all around how we experience that sense of knowing. For example, the book asks you to think about the way that you recall one of your favorite experiences in the past. Do you hear it most? See it? Feel it? Even smell it? If you’re looking for something to help you tune into your inner guide, pick up The Intuitive Way.

The Cult of Productivity
Have you been questioning the place of productivity in your life or in our culture as a whole? Is productivity something you cling to or repel from in times of stress? Ashley and Katey are rethinking their relationships with getting things done and how self-quarantining has impacted their feelings about our cultural obsession with output and efficiency. We explore the ways that white supremacy culture show up in our work and faith circles in ways that we often fail to recognize and share a bit about the thoughtful leaders who are showing us a new way of being in the world that isn't all about being productive.
