"Sacred Jazz" - Studio ASC #9
An Episcopal Church probably isn’t the first place you’d associate with a good jazz concert.

Here are some links to further exploration on the topic of Sacred Jazz and some of the work mentioned in this episode: ELLINGTON'S SACRED CONCERTS - NYT 1985 Irving Townsend on “Black, Brown and Beige,” by Duke Ellington and His Orchestra, Featuring Mahalia Jackson John Coltrane, A Love Supreme, Part 1: "Acknowledgement" Duke Ellington and Mahalia Jackson – “Come Sunday” “Treat it Gentle” by Sidney Bechet

“Pronouns 101.” - Studio ASC #5
Episode 5 of our Studio ASC Podcast Transgender awareness is the focus of this segment of Studio ASC. One of the commitments we make as Episcopalians is to “respect the dignity of every human being.” One of the ways we live out that commitment is by respecting the right of every human being – no matter where they fall on the continuum of sexual orientation or gender identity – to name themselves ... including which pronouns they use. We welcome Hannah Earnshaw to Studio ASC for what we’ve subtitled “Pronouns 101.” And Mike Kinman offers “Refusing to Erase”

The Johnson Amendment - Studio ASC podcast segment
With the release of the GOP Budget Bill the Johnson Amendment is back in the news. For those who need a quick refresher, the Johnson Amendment (named for Lyndon Johnson back when he was a Senator) prohibits all 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations (including churches) from endorsing, opposing or fundraising for political candidates. It is what the IRS accused All Saints of violating back in 2005 and it is [a] what we successfully argued we had not violated and [b] we still support. So we're presenting this recent segment from our podcast "Studio ASC" with Mike Kinman and Susan Russell discussing the nuances and ramifications of the Johnson amendment -- and why All Saints Church continues to support it in the wake of these renewed efforts to eliminate it.
