Meredith Gould talks about everything

Meredith Gould, abbess of The Virtual Abbey, sits down with God Complex Radio, and the topics are broad:

Interesting points in the conversation:

(4:35) Issues with people who say Christianity is the LOVE faith. Christianity is not permissiveness…

(6:00) How do you deal with the verses in John that discuss “the Jews”

(12:00) Where do these two traditions, Judaism and Christianity, clash or connect during the liturgical year?

(15:00) Do you celebrate Jewish traditions at the same time as Christian ones?

(16:40) What would you say to someone who wanted to know how Jewish a Christian should be?

(21:49) Christians are crazy people. Why did I make the jump to Catholicism? Because of Mystery…

(25:42) Where does joy come from?

(27:11) What would you do for a Klondike bar?

(34:58) Obligatory Rob Bell + Hell comment

(35:30) CHURCH CHAT TIME with Carol and Landon – WHAT WHAT?

If you listen to this interview, you’ll hear (I hope) that I had a total blast with these Presbyterian ministers. I appreciated their good humored willingness to discuss difficult topics with heart and sass. For me, it was possibly the best part of this year’s Lenten season.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
