Culture, Worldview, and Difference with Tink Tinker - EPISODE 50

beige-square.jpg

Episode 50 of the Brew Theology Podcast features Dr. Tink Tinker, Ph.D. (wazhazhe/Osage Nation) Baldridge Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions - Iliff School of Theology. After this episode, I encourage you to sit down with some friends and talk about the following quesitons (in a pub would be nice!). What is the difference Tinker posits between worldview and ideology? How then would each of these impact the development of language in a socio-political whole? Are people really able to choose their worldview? Or are they really only choosing between ideologies (without demeaning the importance of this later)? How big is the range of “difference” within what Tinker identifies as the euro-christian worldview? Is it possible for two disparate worldviews to find an amicable balance within any given socio-political whole? Have we not often enough found it difficult enough for differing ideologies to live side by side? Say marxism and euro-christian, democratic capitalism? If the choice is between an up-down hierarchical schema of reality and the collateral-egalitarian model Tinker identifies as the traditional Native model, what might be the benefits of each? The benefits of the colonialist model for Native communities? The benefits of the egalitarian model for White settler folk? How does one determine “truth” when it comes to determining whose worldview ought to dominate a socio-political whole? Finally, what then is God?

This is a great episode, and we are proud to send it to your earbuds, friends.

Mental Health (Part 2) - The Elephant in the Room - Episode 48

beige-square.jpg

Part 2... Go to a pub, and take a look around the room. Take it in. What do you see? Do you see the young professional so saturated in fear and worry that they are terrified of being found out as a fraud just like their mind has always said they were?  Can you spot the functional alcoholic so desperate for relief from the weight of hopelessness and depression that they are deciding if this is the night that they end it all? What about the social outcast trying to interact with a group of acquaintances and missing every social cue getting eye-rolls and hushed comments about how odd they are?

Though you may not notice any obvious tells, the reality is that they, and many others, are there struggling with their own mental health conditions. Mental Health America (MHA) reports that 1 in 5 adults in America have a mental health condition, over 40 million people. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that number rises to over 300 million people worldwide. In addition, over half of those Americans with conditions have not received treatment. On Episode 48 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Shane, Janel, Baird, Christina & Jeff continue their conversation: Mental Health (Part 2)!

Gifts of Imperfection - Episode 43

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we be able to discover the infinite power of our light.” - Dr. Brene Brown

Brene Brown's 2010 TED talk, "The Power of Vulnerability," is one of the 10 most viewed TED talks online. Brown stumbled into the idea of Wholehearted living as part of her social research on how shame impacts the way people live. She experienced what she refers to as her breakdown/ spiritual awakening. 

In Episode 43 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan, Janel, Meghan, Robb & Stef dive into some vulnerable dialogue dealing with courage, compassion and connection. What does it look like to cultivate a life of authenticity, self-compassion, a resilient spirit, gratitude and joy, intuition and trusting faith, calmness/ stillness, and meaningful work along with laughter, song and dance?

Show me the $$$: Economic Justice - Episode 42

From the Neolithic Revolution (the period in which Hunter-Gatherer proto-societies began domesticating crops and livestock) leading all the way to the present, the political, theological, andeconomic spheres of life have almost always been inseparably entwined with one another. This has proved at times to be incredibly helpful for those who control land and resources, while simultaneously being the cause of great pain and oppression for marginalized communities.

What do you see as the current relationship between our religious, political, and economic leaders? What is different between the structuring of the Egyptian and Roman Empires, and our current political/religious/economic context here in the US?

Holy Grub: Food and Religion - Episode 39

In Episode 39 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Holy Grub is served. Janel, Andy, Meghan & Liz brew up an always relvant topic: food and religion. Food and Religion are routinely interwoven into the fabric of cultures. Far from being separate entities, a religion’s perspective of, use of, and beliefs about food and consumption help define norms, practices, and habits surrounding eating, and manifest in a wide range of practices around the world. For instance, Hindu’s reverence of cows helped shape an entire culture of people who revere and protect cattle, often leading to violent cultural clashes between local Muslims for whom cow is one of the few halal – or allowable – types of meat in which to eat. Or, for instance, take the Catholic observance of Lent, which for devotees, encourages an abstinence from red meat at times, while also employing an elaborate metaphor (or is it?) about eating and drinking the flesh and blood of their savior.

All of this and so much more...

Atonement Theories Part 1 - Episode 37

In episode 37 of the Brew Theology podcast, Ryan, Dan, Alex, Brian and Adam brew up the topic, "Atonement Theories." This is Part 1 of 2 episodes. This show is brought to you by Seedstock Brewery. If you dig this episode and/or other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a share, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!

So, what’s atonement? 

Maybe you’ve heard it best understood by the English, “At – ONE – ment”… meaning humanity being at “one” with the divine ONE! This is a good place to start. I’d add the original Hebrew, “Kaphar,” which is where we get the word, “atone,” literally meaning, “to cover.” This comes from the covering of Israel’s sins on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). Next, theories of Atonement are explanations from scholars over the past 2,000 years who have tired to explain the mystery of what happened to Jesus and this world: past, present and future on the cross!

Many Christians have been taught (Or it’s simply been infused into modern, Western Christianity through sermons and worship songs) only one popular atonement theory. Interestingly, when one does the research, we find that this popular theory wasn’t even in existence within the first 1,000 years of Christianity. Theories are sincere, speculative explanations based on subjective opinions, involving careful intelligence in academia, experience in real time, historical criticism, and a community of good 'ole fashioned “butt kickers."

In episodes 37 and 38, we cover the following:

- Ransom Captive
- Union With God
- Satisfaction
- Penal Substitution
- Christus Victor
- Moral Exemplar
- The Last Scapegoat
- God's Solidarity

Barrel Aged Gospels with Dr. Craig Blomberg - Episode 31

Ready for some barrel-aged theology? Ever had a drink from Matthew, Mark, Luke & John? Anyone who grew up in the Christian church was heavily influenced by the writings from these Gospels. In fact, these ancient texts have influenced civilization for two millennia. But are they reliable? How can we trust documents from 2,000 years ago that were written many decades after the life of Jesus? Remember the game of telephone as a child? Did the earliest followers of Jesus fabricate stories of a life that never existed, or were they carefully crafting stories that are highly reliable and worthy of our respect today?

Distinguished New Testament theologian, Dr. Craig Blomberg* brewed up some barrel-aged goodness on Episode 30 of the Brew Theology Podcast! If you dig this episode and other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a nice 'lil share on the interwebs, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!

*Dr. Craig Blomberg is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado. Craig is the author of fifteen books and has co-authored or co-edited ten more, along more than 150 journal articles and chapters in multi-author works. To quote Ron Burgundy, according to the academic world, Craig is kind of a BIG DEAL!!! The Blombergs love to travel, often combining vacation and ministry opportunities at other colleges and seminaries. Craig has enjoyed three Broncos’ Super Bowl victories in his thirty-plus years in Denver, but as a native of northern Illinois his lifelong sports dream came true in 2016 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.
