For those of you who don’t know, Wild Goose is like a Woodstock Hipster Paradise for Theology Nerds. If that’s not clear, then you can check it out here.
This Wild Goose interview was interview was with Bec Cranford, the volunteer director at the Gateway Center for homeless people in Atlanta. Bec is a heavily tattooed progressive Pentecostal wonder-woman. On the interview, she shared powerful stories of a tough life journey that has left her full of empathy. Everything was going well until she started speaking in tongues.

Morgan’s third Wild Goose interview was with Brandan Robertson, the author of ‘Nomad: A Spirituality for Traveling Light.’ His original book contract was rescinded when he came out as queer, so he had to republish with a UK publisher. Brandan was a fundamentalist street preacher in the Baltimore Inner Harbor at the age of 13. He went to Moody Bible Institute where he was almost expelled for doing a radio interview with Brian McLaren. It was refreshing to hear how little bitterness Brandan has for his past and how he seeks to integrate all the phases of his spiritual journey as he wanders and wonders into the future.

Since C&GJ interviewed so many folks there, we’re posting a couple per week in the dog days of summer. The first two are Alicia Crosby and and Sarah Heath.

Alicia Crosby is the co-founder and co-director of the Center for Inclusivity in Chicago. In our interview, she talked a lot about expanding the concept of church. She makes the point that while Jesus spent some time in the temple, most of where he did church was in people’s houses and on the streets. Alicia discussed what holiness looks like for an inclusive Christian and how the church should be responding to police violence against black people.

Sarah Heath, the pastor of First United Methodist Church of Costa Mesa, California. Sarah’s pure, Christlike heart is contagious. She talked a lot about the beautiful, eclectic mix of people in her church and how sad she would be if the United Methodists decided to split.

While I’ve got your attention, my dear friend Clay Mottley, whom you know from our theme music on Crackers & Grape Juice has just released his third full length album, Best of Days. It’s really good.

You should check it out here: http://www.claymottley.com

We’ll be doing an interview/solo show with Clay for the podcast next month so be on the lookout for him to share about beauty, aesthetics, and the creative process.
