So my daughter asked me to listen to a podcast (Lost and Found) on the Liturgist podcasts. It will be a point of discussion.
I listened to it and many other podcasts and I am intriqued. I went to their website, signed up on a few community groups and decided I would listen to all of them. I figure it will take me a while.
What I've noticed (so far) that most of the people seem to come from a traditional evangelical/some baptist background, seem to be under the age of 45, although some guests are older. The hosts talked about God and Jesus, but not really about Holy Spirit. They talked about difficulties in life,..but not about demonic influence. Not sure if they believed in that or not, but I am curious.
In Lost and Found, the hosts talked about thier deconstruction, which I would call going through the dark night of the soul, transitions in the different seasons of life. I've been through many deconstructionr/reconstructions in my spiritual journey so I could somewhat relate. The stories I could tell!
I really like listening to them and hearing their different viewpoints. Again, though, I am so curious (guess I have to wait until I get through them all) if any of them come from a charismatic/revivalist experience and/or other xian American ethnic cultural experience.
I listened to Richard Rohr, who many of them talk about and seem to like. He just sounded like the many Catholic people I knew growing up. (I went to catholic school for 12 years). I used to hang out with a Jesuit when I was a teen, and listening to him brought back those memories. (yeah, kind of weird when I think back on it).
I have been influenced by the Catholic and Protestant (charismatic/revivalist) and Messianics. Currently, I just like to keep my faith/spiritual journey simple. It's going to be in interesting journey listening to these.
