Essential Listening in Today's Social Environment
To preface this review, the best way to describe my faith would be agnostic atheist, but even that definition doesn't always describe what I believe very well. I strongly believe that we are missing something into today's society which is why we find ourselves so divided and so many people are feeling unfulfilled in their daily lives.
That being said, Chris and Shayna are tapping into conversation that is essential listening for anyone asking, "Where do we as a society go from here?". While very new and raw, Chris and Shayna are asking the right questions to engage deep and revealing conversation between people and communities. You do not need to be religious to listen to this podcast. In fact, I would argue the audience that stands to gain the most from "What In God's Name" would be agnostics & atheists and the religious faithful who may not have ever had the opportunity to ask, "Why?".
I'm extremely excited to see where this podcast goes. In a world that is more connected than ever through technology, our communities are lacking something and it is preventing our society from evolving into the 21st century. A definite must listen! Thank you Chris and Shayna!
What a breath of fresh air
So good to hear smart discussion in the context of Christianity. The conversation you share is easy to follow and listen to, and is a very refreshing in the general cultural mood of extremes on the left and right.
