An early consultant in this podcast, Tony Jones is a theologian and church self-described church proctologist. Teer & Tony had a chance to catch up and discuss the United Methodist quadrennial gathering, Progressive Christianity, and even (just because it’s Tony Jones) a little atonement theology.
This is raw, unfiltered Crackers & Grape Juice.
Morgan had a chance to catch up with Episcopal candidate Rev. Tom Berlin while at the 2016 General Conference. Morgan and Tom had a chance to chat about the issue of human sexuality which is currently being debated in Portland. In addition, Tom filled us in some of the committee work being done which is not getting as much social media attention.
It’s hard to have conversations in the local church about the easy stuff: choosing which hymns to sing, what color to paint the hallway, and what kind of coffee to serve. Is it any surprise then that the UMC still cannot have a conversation about human sexuality that doesn’t become reduced to name calling? Are we surprised that we spit out talking points quickly and fail to realize that we are talking about actual people with real lives?
Morgan is on a book tour!
In their first attempt to record a live podcast the guys stumble, recover, lose cell phone coverage, and recover again as they talk about Morgan’s new book.
Just imagine for a moment that Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson actually walked into a bar. Then on top of that awkward moment, a retired UMC Bishop calls them out. Well, here we go.
Episode 2 is part 1 of a conversation with pastor & author Brian Zahnd. In this episode, Teer & Jason talk with Brian about his latest book, “Water Into Wine”. Part 2 of the conversation will be released in the next week or 2.
Welcome to Crackers & Grape Juice.
This is our pilot episode. Jason & Teer sat down to talk about Missional Theology in the Field of Youth Ministry, which happens to be the title of Teer’s soon to be completed Master’s thesis.
We’d love to hear from you. Let us know how we are doing and who you’d like for us to chat with next.
