 Episode 24: “Buddhist Christians, a “Holy” Mistake & Road Blocks in Church History” with Dr. John Cobb | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:32:40

In episode 24 of the Brew Theology Podcast we are live in Redondo Beach at #TheologyBeerCamp with Dr. John Cobb. If you are unfamiliar with Dr. Cobb’s work, you will definitely want to dig in after listening to this Jedi Master unveil some theological #BOOM on the mic. Cobb breaks down a bit of experiential pluralism via Buddhism and Christianity to begin our conversation, engages in some Wesleyan dialogue and carefully navigates through 5 key developments in church history that have blocked appreciation and a priority of Jesus’ own teaching, thus hindering the relational accessibility of moving into a dynamic relationship with Abba/ Father as seen in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Thanks to Tripp Fuller and Homebrewed Christianity for hosting this event in Cali.   /// "Like" Brew Theology on Facebook & Instagram (@brewtheology) & Twitter (@brew_theology).

In Episode 22 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan, Janel, Liz & Alex interview Amanda Henderson from the Interfaith Alliance of CO. As we walk into 2017 with an unknown political and social future ahead, many of us are concerned about oppression, marginalization and division ahead - especially for those who are most vulnerable. How will we respond? How will we build movements of resistance and resilience? Amanda Henderson, Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, guides us to explore how the first step to building a new world of radical justice and hospitality is to 'Gather our People'. Who are 'our people'? What does it look like to strengthen 'our people'? Who are those who aren't 'our people'? What is the risk and benefit of focusing on 'our people'? This episode is relevant, indeed... Cheers!   /// Rev. Amanda Henderson is the Executive Director of The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado and an ordained minister in the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ.

 Episode 20: “Rogue One” - A Hanukkah Story | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:04:06

In Episode 20 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan and friends - Meghan, Liz, Dan & Shoshana - brew up an Hanukkah episode just in time. Yup. The original Rogue One Star Wars Rebels were Jewish. Let's finish the holiday season spinning the dreidel, lighting the menorah & digging into the liberation movement of Hanukkah then and NOW... Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the miracle of the oil. It is an 8-day celebration that commemorates a Jewish victory over tyranny and begins on the lunar month Kislev 25 (Dec. 24 sunset–Jan.1 sunset ‘16/ ‘17). The Hanukkah story is found in 1 Maccabees (apocrypha), and is the story of how Judas Maccabee and his band of freedom fighters overthrew the Seleucid forces under the rule of Antiochus “Epiphanes” during the 2nd Century BCE. Hanukkah is not a biblical festival recorded in Hebrew Scriptures as it began after the last books of the Scriptures were completed. However, it is recognized in the Christian New Testament (John 10), as we see Jesus going to the temple on this holiday. (It is unclear if he ate potato latkes and doughnuts after his visit that day.). Enjoy the episode.

 Episode 16: “Devils & Demons” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:56:33

In Episode 16 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan and friends - Janel, Chris, Monica & Liz dive into the abyss of darkness and talk about their experiences and theology with devils and demons.   Dana Carvey’s classic, Church Lady skit on SNL from the 90’s brings us to the hilarious and haunting question, “Could it be SATAN?” Perhaps you’re familiar with John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” which describes Lucifer’s descent from the heavenly realm. Maybe you’ve been Bedazzled by Elizabeth Hurley, the sly princess of darkness released in 2000. How about Al Pacino’s stellar performance in “The Devil’s Advocate?” There’s no shortage of red-horned, culturally devilish goodness. The conversation of Satan and demons has been around for thousands of years. Some want to label the “demonic” and/ or “satanic” as simply aspects to address liberation theology, tangibly rescuing those held in oppression. Others seem to talk of the supernatural in literal terms, and in so doing, dismiss the conversation and application of human-based delinquencies and social change. What about you?

In Episode 15 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Janel and friends - Leah, Dan & Liz - brew up the topic of prayer and meditation. We've provided some show notes/ resources below for your own experience(s), below. As long as religion has existed, prayer has been an integral if not foundational aspect to the practice of faith. This is true across many cultures and religions and it is hard to pinpoint when the practice of prayer first started to develop. Prayer is one of those things that carries with it testimony of participation. What is it like to pray? What have we experienced in prayer? How has God met us there? ... Many people have really mixed feelings about prayer. What about you? Enjoy this episode, friends.

 Episode 13: “God IS or is NOT…” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:56:24

In Episode 13 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Janel, Kyle, Piper, Dan and Baird nerd out with conventional labels of God while seeking to dive into those meanings and deconstruct them. Often, one hears, “The Bible says it. I believe it. That settles it.” This “Bible says it…” motto is always wrapped in a particular understanding of the Bible. We’ll unpack 4 specific words scholars have given God that will be reexamined from many angles. After genuinely grappling with these godly attributes, some will keep these conventional labels. Others have already shed them. Some will look at them a new for the first time. There are biblical and historical reasons for the labels we’ve given God, and what we think/ believe and say about God/ god/ gods/ G-d is always played out in how we live and move and have our being… Yes! Theology is practical! Perhaps you’ll add and subtract some new hops and barley as you include some of your own wild yeast in your own Brew Theology group... Immutable = The belief that God doesn’t change. Impassible = The belief that God doesn’t suffer or show emotion. Omnipotent = The belief that God is all-powerful.

 Episode 11: “Theodicy” - The Problem of Evil, Pain & Suffering | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:53:38

For thousands of years humanity has wrestled with suffering. Buddhism starts with the noble truth that all of life consists of suffering. Aching for meaning and seeking religious insight, humans have grappled with karma, and brought theodicy – attempting to answering the questions of why a good deity permits the materialization of evil – to light in an age of uncertainty, doubt and confusion. While suffering is relative, and in some cases easier to make sense (i.e. working out and working hard has a “pain” component), the deeper questions ask, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” &, “Do all events have a purpose?” Is God all powerful and able to stop A, B or C? Then Why...? In Episode 11 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan and friends - Vlad, Amanda, Andy & Kyle - hash out the most age-old and relevant questions regarding trauma. God is on trial, indeed...   Enjoy the episode, friends. & Share the hopilicous brew. Follow & "Like" Brew Theology on Facebook & Instagram (@brewtheology) & Twitter (@brew_theology).

In Episode 10 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Janel Apps Ramsey hosts a stellar show with friends (Nena, Alex and Baird) that will challenge you on many levels. What do we mean when we talk about white privilege? Is there a widely accepted definition? Is white privilege circumstantial? What about those white people who do not feel as though they have had preferential treatment because of their skin color? What about Obama? He is black, AND THE PRESIDENT!
