So many of us have been given bad answers to good questions — questions about God, suffering, prayer, fate, science, justice, and more — often by people with pure intentions.

But we needn’t stop with those pat answers. You have permission to take both Christianity and the modern world very seriously, and this podcast will introduce you to people from across the Christian spectrum engaging these timeless and difficult questions in various ways

What is Theopoetics? (#134) You Have Permission

This week, I spoke with author Callid Keefe-Perry on the concept of Theopoetics. Along with his book “Way to Water: A Theopoetics Primer”, we discuss the issue of justice, following Jesus and living out Keefe-Perry’s Quaker practice. Callid speaks about how being grounded in creativity is intrinsic to humanity—we are all “crafters” and “makers” of life. As he advocates for a less dogmatic approach, his Quaker tradition allows for a more artful expression of faith.
