Coming up…

As I finish up the book, I’m really looking forward to blogging on a regular basis. But, it won’t be for a little while now….

Until then, you can check out the God Complex Radio Show that I’m co-hosting with the Moderator, Bruce Reyes-Chow and with the wonderful work of a very hard working staff: Landon Whitsitt (Producer), Mark Smith (Web Master), Brian Merritt (Marketing Coordinator), and Heather Scott (Technician). We air it every Monday at Noon EDT. If you can be there live, the chat room is very entertaining. Plus, we usually take callers and questions from the chat.

If it’s not a good time for you, no worries. You can listen later. In fact, I put a Blog Talk Radio widget right there on my sidebar, so it would be easy for you to hear. So far, the most popular shows (other than our first one) have been with Diana Butler Bass and Nadia Bolz-Weber. If you haven’t heard what they have to say, I invite you to allow them to impart their wisdom upon you via the Interwebs.

Today, we will be celebrating Juneteenth, and asking, “Have we moved into a Post-Racial society?” Our guest will be Pastor Sean McMillan of Giant Steps Church in Chicago.

Our upcoming guests are really wonderful as well. A fuller schedule will be available soon–we have some poets and politicians also to be scheduled–but just so you can mark your calendars:

June 29 – Nanette Sawyer, talking with us about Hospitality.
July 13 – Stephen Ray, talking with us about John Calvin turning 500.
July 20 – Paul Raushenbush, will be telling us about the Social Gospel in the 21st Century.
August 3 – Phyllis Tickle, will be discussing The Great Emergence.
August 10 – Frank Schaeffer, will be talking to us about helping to found the Religious Right, and then taking (almost) all of it back.
August 17 – Barbara Brown Taylor, will be talking about her new book An Altar in the World.
August 24 – Eric Elnes will discuss with us his adventures in finding a New Christian Faith.
August 31 – Michael Livingston will be speaking about Post-Denominationalism.

And, I have to say that we have many wonderful people who we are in the midst of scheduling right now. So, as we keep putting this calendar together, what great books have you read? Who is doing interesting work? Who would you like for us to talk to? Are there any up-and-coming musical guests that you would like to hear? Just let us know in the comments, and we’ll see what we can do.

  1. Brian McLaren, he has written some wonderful books on the emerging church. I also went to a panel discussion that he participated in and found him to be quite dynamic.

  2. Just wanted to say that I really enjoy hearing the GodComplex show when I have the opportunity and you and Bruce are doing a great job. Suggestions for radio guests: Brian Blount, President of Union Presbyterian Seminary (VA) and Trace Haythorn, President of the Fund for Theological Education (FTE). Books – The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy by Colleen Carroll, and Beyond Smells and Bells: The Wonder and Power of Christian Liturgy by Mark Galli.

  3. Hi Carol. I just found your radio show and have begun listening through the archives. I’m enjoying the discussion as it is revolving around a lot of the questions in my own head. I have to say, it’s been frustrating hearing the first couple episodes though. I think it is the mainline background you guys have, but i had a hard time hearing you and bruce bring up a question that involved big changes for an ever bigger ship but then slowly back away as though you realized you just took too big of a bite. (i’m thinking of the issues such as membership and clergy). but even so, i so appreciate the wisdom of your voices and I look forward to more thoughts as i continue to tune in. your viewpoints inform me and give a needed to check to areas where i might be too quick to abandon tradition.

    take care,
    david.

    • Thanks for listening! What a great observation about the first couple of shows. My background is Fundy/Evangelical and Bruce’s is Mainline. But, you’re right. I know I do that “change everything” and then “back off” dance all the time. It’s probably from being a pastor for 10 years….
