(Her)Men*You*tics: Face

Jason Micheli —  November 23, 2017 — Leave a comment

It’s the word from the benediction: “…may God’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.”

For episode #11 of (Her)Men*You*tics we move into words that begin with -F- and Dr. Johanna chose the word ‘Face.’

Mark you calendars…Saturday, December 16 in Alexandria, Va we’re going to do a live podcast with our friend Tripp Fuller of Home-brewed Christianity. Details to follow.

“And so in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves…”
In the Eucharist we remember so that the past might be made present that we might be consumed by what we consume in order that we become what we eat. In other words, this word: anamnesis. We talk with Dr. Johanna Hartelius in this second episode of (her)men*you*tics about Plato, the Prayer of Great Thanksgiving, and the particular way the peculiar people called Christians remember. Check it out.
Each week we’ll be tackling a theological term that you’ve either heard before or you’ve heard it doing its work in worship whether you realized it or not. We’re going alphabetically, 2 words per letter, and we’re doing it all in 25 minutes or less.

At Crackers and Grape Juice, we’re starting a new series with my longtime and long-suffering friend Dr. Johanna Hartelius cheekily called (her)men*you*tics where Johanna will unpack stained glass language to help you speak better Christian.

Each week we’ll tackle a theological term, discussing what it means, what’s at stake, and why you should care in your own daily discipleship. And we’ll do it all each week in 25 minutes or less.

Johanna is professor of rhetoric at Pitt and has launched her own communication consulting gig too. We’ve been friends since I was 18 when we met as camp counselors. Crackers and Grape Juice began as an expression and venture of friendship with Teer, Taylor, and Morgan. (her)men*you*tics carries on in that vein.

Props to Alex Joyner for proposing this idea in the first place. We’ll see if he warrants blame or praise.

Finally, don’t be a moocher:

For Episode #112, I talked with the philosophical theologian David Bentley Hart about a series of questions submitted by his fans. Part 1 includes the questions: “When are you going to pay me back?” (from his brother Addison Hart), “What would you talk about with Christopher Hitchens?” and “What advice would you offer those about to begin college?” and more.

Be on the lookout for our upcoming episodes. Part 2 of David Bentley Hart answering his fans’ questions. Beverly Gaventa unpacks how to interpret Paul’s letters apocalyptically, former White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry talks about religion in the public square, and Ruben Rosario Rodriguez talks liberation theology and racism.

Coming this Fall:

Look for a new regular installment called

(her)men*you*tics with my good friend, Dr. Johanna Hartelius.

Johanna is a professor of rhetoric, formerly at Pitt. For each installment of (her)*men*you*tics the guys will talk with *her* about a key theological term, what it means and why you should care in your daily life. And we’ll do it in 25 minutes or less. You can check her out here.

Rev. Alex Joyner gave us the idea for this series so thank or scold him based on the results. It will be like ‘Fridays with Fleming’ but not on Fridays and not with Fleming.
