David Felten, Fact or Fiction? May 28- June 3

David Felten, co-creator of Living the Questions, is also pastor of The Fountains in Fountain Hills, Arizona.  He found himself under attack by fellow clergy who do not approve of his brand of Christianity.  These clergy have used the op ed page of the local paper, newspaper advertisements, and expensive banners to campaign against David and progressive Christianity.   David spoke with me about it as well as the strange times we are in regarding religious faith.

Carolyn Baker, Love in the Age of Ecological Apocalypse, May 14-20

Spend the apocalypse with someone you love.  Carolyn Baker returns to Religion For Life to talk about her book, Love in the Age of Ecological Apocalypse:  Cultivating the Relationships We Need to Thrive.   The Long Descent is not a pretty picture.  As industrial civilization hits its limits, resilience will be the primary characteristic of those who survive and thrive.  Preparing emotionally and building relationships will be just as important if not more important than preparing materially for the future.  Dr. Baker, a former psychotherapist and professor of psychology and history, offers life coaching for people who wish to live more resiliently.  Catch her radio program, The Lifeboat Hour on Progressive Radio Network.
