Today on the 12 Stone Spirituality Podcast I talk about my story, where I come from and how we get where we are. I also spend a good bit of time talking about difficulty, anger and sorrow and the incredibly fertile soil they produce. Check it out today!
Today is a sad day for me. For eight years I have been very proud of our country’s leader. I have been proud to be associated with him and proud of the majority of what he had said, fought for and ultimately the kindness and integrity in which he did it. Today I am sad because I am not proud of what our country has done and who we have lifted up to be our leader. Today is a call to action, a call to movement and a call to the very core principles of our faith. Today is a call to resist. So here is my pledge:
I resist because Jesus said that the truth will set you free, he did not build platforms on deceit and embolden a “post-truth” world
I resist because Jesus said that he had come to set the oppressed free, he did not single out minorities, diminish their neighborhoods and characterize whole people groups as rapists and violent criminals
Episode 2 of the 12 Stone Spirituality Podcast is up and ready! I hope you will be able to go over to iTunes and download and subscribe to the 12 Stone Spirituality Podcast. The podcast has had an incredible response so far! This episode is about the Biblical origin of the idea behind 12 Stone and the oncoming desert that God is calling us into, and how that is a good thing 🙂

I know I have been rather quiet on the blog for the past couple of months… I have had a wonderful couple of months with family and friends over the holidays and through busyness that comes along with all of that goodness.
There is another reason things have been relatively slow around the 12 Stone Spirituality blog. I have been working on, developing and creating the 12 Stone Spirituality Podcast! My plan is to release one podcast a week starting today! The podcast will be very similar to the blog, I will spend time playing at the intersections of life, spirituality and current events. My hope is that this new form will be a place to connect with more people and to create more relationships as we discover new and ancient ways of connecting with God and each other. I hope you will go and listen and I would be absolutely honored if you subscribed!
So… Check it out! ——> 12 Stone Spirituality Podcast
