Lessons From Dead Guys
“Tradition means giving a vote to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.”
-G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
#LessonsFromDeadGuys is a podcast that seeks to lead listeners through the wild paths left by the saints, sinners, heretics, and mystics of the church into the depth and beauty of the larger christian tradition. This podcast chronicles the journey of having my fundamentalist evangelical biblical literalist world view implode in my face all the while having no idea that God's grace was waiting for me on the other side of the shipwreck to lead me down paths that my backwoods christian upbringing did not even know existed. So in many respects this podcast is about my doubts, fears, misconceptions, thoughts, and the unraveling of my faith due to the sin of certainty and a new found hope in not knowing all the answers. My sincere hope is that through this podcast you will be pointed deeper into the vast mystery of the divine and find grace and peace amid all your doubts and certainties.
