Greg & Tripp Chatting

Get ready for part 2 of ‘Ten Not-So-Shocking Things You Learn in Religion 101′.  The first half was pretty exciting and things don’t slow down here.

In this episode Tripp is  joined again by Greg Horton, ex-pastor and undergrad religion professor in Oklahoma to look of  a list of 10 Not-So-Shocking Things You Learn in Religion 101.

Greg Horton was one of the inspirations behind starting the podcast.  Tripp have stalked him online for a long time and then we got to have some fun in person on my visit to Oklahoma.  It was turned into this popular episode of the podcast.  Then he came back on the podcast to share 10 Dirty Secrets About Being a Minister.  Way back when he had a podcast called ‘the Parish’ on the wired parish podcast network. Back then he was an emergent Christian and has since left the building. Throughout his journey I have loved following his blog,hearing about his undergrad religion and ethics students, and thinking through some of the serious criticisms he has leveled against the church. Plus he also does some wine reviews.

If you live in LA come enjoy the podcast LIVE July 30 with Peter Rollins and Kester Brewin!

Question:
In passing, you discussed how to educate/parent children in how to read and think through the Biblical narrative, and how to pray.

Does anyone know of any resources you would recommend, that take a more 'progressive' approach, rather than a literalistic or Evangelical stance?

I would genuinely appreciate your recommendations.
(Our daughter is 10, but advice on various age ranges might be helpful to this audience.)

sign me up for the next conversation, Tripp, wherein we discuss things we don't hold in common. I think it would be good for me to flesh out my various levels of conviction and certainty on these issues, and I thoroughly enjoy the exchanges.

You're right, I was misreading the intention rather. Sorry. Enjoyed the second part of the conversation as much as the first. There's some stuff in the middle I want to chew over. I would agree that some differences do emerge in this part. You both handle it very graciously.

I too really enjoyed both of these Greg Horton episodes. It would be very interesting to have him back and Tripp and Greg can try to go head to head over things they disagree about, not in an attempt to convince the other, but more as a linguistic exercise in how they hold certain truths, while weighing the levels of certainty/conviction that each has regarding certain topics. I hope that Homebrewed continues to host conversations with people who are on the outside or fringes of the church/faith, because the theological and ideological cross-pollination is fascinating to hear.

well these 10 things were theoretically things you learn in most religion classes. i was hoping the podcast would show that this critical thinking isn't necessarily antithetical to faith. maybe next time Greg Horton is on we can deal with topics we would likely disagree about. i would say we do disagree about how to hold some of the topics we discussed in this episode.

I've been looking forward to it. I'm curious though: in part one you seemed to agree with much of what Horton said but he has "left the building" and you haven't. Where does that difference spring from?
