Holy Heretics seeks to foster honest conversations about the state of religion in the 21st century. We interview experts, spiritual seekers, scholars, and activists in our quest to examine just exactly how modern-day Christianity lost the Way of Jesus while also discovering how it can be regained through subversive thought and action.
 
|| A podcast on Christian deconstruction, liberal theology, spiritual freedom, and faith in the modern world. || Can we rebuild our faith after being hurt by the church? Can we reclaim the Christian faith as one that affirms women, science, mental health, LGBTQ+, body positivity, justice, and doubt? I say, yes. My guests and I offer support and conversations for reconstructing the faith while filtering out toxic theology.
 
The Lost Ways of Knowing teaches a basic history of the Indian traditions that feature centrally in modern yoga, focusing mainly on the core value of awakening, or being liberated from ignorance and bondage. This distinguishes Yoga's ancient origins and aims from the more superficial concerns generated by the loss of its sacrificial, initiatory context. Our ultimate aim is to establish a working definition of yoga as awakening, and to initiate a continuing dialogue about awakening as the sys ...

Sunday service recordings from the UU Church of Urbana-Champaign, Illinois (UUCUC). Unitarian Universalism is a progressive, liberal religion that embraces theological diversity.

The roots of Unitarian Universalism are in liberal Christianity, specifically Unitarianism and Christian Universalism. From these tradition ...
 
How can I love others that I blatantly disagree with? How do I find joy in the middle of a faith crisis? Can I have liberal beliefs and be a Christian? What is my life's purpose?

Pull up a seat as author, speaker and foster mom, Manda Carpenter, creates a longer table to provide a space where everyone’s voice can be heard with intentional ears and tender hearts. There’s no topic ...

If you enjoyed this episode, please leave us a rating and a review 🙏 Most of us who are raised evangelical are taught 3 things about the Bible: 1. that it’s the Word of God; 2. that it’s inerrant (i.e., without error); and 3. that a “plain and simple” reading of it contains all the truth humankind will ever need. But what if none of those things is…

If you enjoyed this episode, please leave us a rating and a review 🙏 Everyone’s experience with “deconstruction” or “leaving the faith” is different, but one thing that so many have in common is a loss of community.

“Other people have it worse.” “This really wasn’t that bad.” “Stop making mountains out of molehills.” If you’ve ever said these things to yourself when thinking about your religious upbringing, or if other people have ever said them to you, congrats!

You’re either right or you’re wrong, there is no in between. At least, that’s what most versions of Christianity in the U.S. have taught for decades, saying that if a spiritual practice falls in the “fully wrong” category, we should have nothing to do with it. But what if there’s a lot to be learned from other religions and practices? What if they …
