Brief Episode Summary:

On April 17, 2020, I hosted one of my first podcast episodes…and still, one of the most memorable, at least it is to me. Its title is Recovering from Religion – Growing in Faith. Confessions of a Recovering Evangelical. My guest was Rabbi Alicia Magal. 

Today, I have the great joy of hosting political theologian and Episcopal priest, Rev. Dr. Marcia Ledford, Civil Rights Attorney. The organization she aligns with, Political Theology Matters, has within its Mission Statement, giving voice to social issues that impact the lives of ordinary people. By inspiring the one, it asserts that we can work towards a more just society for the many.

Key Topics:

  • What is a political theologian?
  • Dr. Marcie is a lesbian cleric. Why is it so important to her that she write extensively about the gay community and its legitimate scripturally sound loving attachment to the Divine?
  • The American Immigration System is inhumane, it's in tatters and desperately needs reforming (the Immigration Act is 25 years old)! Where do we start?
  • Human trafficking is alive and well in the United States! How can you make a positive difference without getting dangerously close?
  • The pure hatred that was unleashed on America on September 11, 2001 can never be justified! It was pure evil! From a Divine loving perspective, what should our attitude be that hopefully will negate anything like that happening ever again? 
  • On January 6, 2021, America came within a hair of losing its democracy and republic. Our guest is more than a little worried!

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
