Diana Butler Bass: Religion, Politics, & the Elephant in the Room

Homebrewed Christianity Podcast

Religion & Spirituality

Who is ready for some religion, politics, history, inspiration and a few pretty intense questions? I hope you are because Diana Butler Bass is here. This is the kick-off of our newest online pop-up community – Ruining Dinner.  When the headlines bleed and your relatives are screaming at each other online, who knows what this election season will bring. For many of us, some of our closest relationships are strained and fracturing at thought of 4 more years of this. Well, as we approach election day (or month?!!) let’s do it together. You don’t have to ruin ever dinner alone – let us help! Weekly Live Streams: Diana & Tripp will gather online to share timely insights as scholars of religion about the present moment, introduce you to some other progressive Christian scholars/activists, and tackle questions/topics from the community. Private Community Facebook Group: We will have a private FB group so you can have a MAGA-free space in your feed & a community of people to ride with. Moments of Gratitude & Reflection: In these anxious times we will work to cultivate a deeper spiritual center amidst our crazy times. Email Updates: Info on all the streams, resources, and opportunities will be shared so no one is out of the loop. A Community Archive: All the content will be archived and available to each member online. You do NOT have to join live to get everything. Dr. Bass is an award-winning author, popular speaker, inspiring preacher, and one of America’s most trusted commentators on religion and contemporary spirituality.  Diana’s passion is sharing great ideas to change lives and the world – a passion that ranges from informing the public about spiritual trends, challenging conventional narratives about religious practice, entering the fray of social media with spiritual wisdom and smart theology, and writing books to help readers see themselves, their place in history, and God differently. Don’t miss out on Diana’s excellent and regular newsletter – The Cottage.  In the episode we get a visit from Rev. Ryan Eller, Executive Director of New Moral Majority, and hear about his work organizing people of faith this election year. Check out their new ad below.
