S2E6: Beholding and Becoming in Community with Ruth Chou Simons
In today’s episode of The Turquoise Table, host Kristin Schell interviews Ruth Chou Simons, who is an artist, author, speaker, and founder of GraceLaced. Her most recent book Beholding and Becoming: The Art of Everyday Worship takes us on a journey of redirecting our eyes and hearts for worship, right where we are. Ruth and Kristin discuss the role social media plays in our ability to be present. We are distracted by millions of images that fly by, we don’t even realize our short-sightedness and hurry can lead to shallow faith. Ruth and Kristin discuss how hard it is to be the new family in a community and the assumptions that are made which prevent people from inviting a family over. They also describe the difference between entertaining and hospitality, and just how easy it can be to invite someone over and open up lines of communication.
