good stuff

I heard Science Mike on the Pete Holmes podcast, his story was so refreshing to hear, in fact it was like he was reading the book of my life over the past few years. I'm a worship leader in a fundamentalist charismatic church, but I consider myself "progressive". Its hard to find other people with whom share my thoughts on God and the bible . I know this podcast is just getting started, but i want them to continue and keep up the good work.

On the decline

I used to love the Liturgists. They started producing episodes at a critical point in my life. The first few seasons I was loving it and it really helped me have a feeling that I wasn't alone and crazy for deconstructing my formerly fundamentalist fatih.

However, the past year or so has seen a steady decline. I am an open-minded follower of Christ. I believe Science Mike said something about being generous with orthodoxy. I'm all about that.

That being said, they seem to have lost it. They also have created this beautiful circular system for themselves that would allow them to discount the criticisms of this review (if they were to read it). The past year has seen them get progressively more depressing and cynical. As I have started to fall out of love with this podcast, I'm seeing some of the negative aspects more clearly. They want to talk about being inclusive, non-judgmental, loving, etc. However, they are extremely judgmental about anything they disagree with. The funniest is how they will get worked up about Christians not "progressive" enough (for lack of a better term). It's almost like a "progressive" Christian who isn't as "progressive" as them is worse than being a right-wing fundie.

In addition to that criticism, the content and subjects of the more recent seasons have been less and less interesting than the first few seasons. Their production quality is technically excellent. They have been increasing the production of episodes, which some may enjoy, but is not my preference. You can tell how they are cleary editing and chopping up conversations and interviews and mixing with music that touches on your heartstrings in order to push their agenda, rather than just posting a great conversation with someone like Richard Rohr or Pete Rollins.

In conclusion: I used to love this show and the Liturgists in general. A few weeks ago I stopped listening to every episode because of how depressing it was. I will check back every once in a while to see what's going on. If Michael and Michael can regain that original mojo, I would be a subscriber again in a heartbeat

This is Awesome

I, like so many others, grew up evangelical and then went to college and from then on throughout the course of my adult life have been in a great struggle with the tension between my faith and science. This podcast is a really refreshing and truly engaging! Keep up the good work!
