They Did Not Believe The Women: At the Border Between Trauma & Resurrection
Do our new understandings of trauma change how we read scripture? I was captivated by Serene Jones' reading of the Emmaus Road narrative through the lens of trauma, in her book Trauma + Grace. After reading her, I returned to the text and saw these strange words concerning the resurrection that are a sort of set up to the Emmaus story, "they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense” (24:11, emphasis mine). This episode explores the women in Luke 24 as existing (even still) at the borderland between trauma and resurrection.I've started writing over at substack.

Washed in the Spirit Part I ft. Dr. Andrew Ray Williams
Pentecostal pastor-theologian Andrew Ray Williams has written a really important book about water baptism titled Washed in the Spirit: Toward a Pentecostal Theology of Water Baptism. This is both an important book both to the wider ecumenical community as well as the Pentecostal community in particular. Andrew's work challenges many of our practices surrounding baptism, but also the assumptions behind these practices. I highly recommend this work and hope you enjoy the conversation!Canadian Amazon Book LinkAmerican Amazon Book Link
