Godcast —Conversations About Difficult Devotion

Godcast —Conversations About Difficult Devotion

by

Godcast exists to share our stories about the presence or absence of religion in our lives. Each episode focuses on a particular issue or experience in the hopes of acknowledging that we are in a continued conversation with the religion/ worldview with which we were raised—whether that conversation happens from a place of reception or rejection. Here at Godcast, we believe that religion and spirituality should be a part of the public conversation; we recognize, however, that religion can be polarizing. In light of this, we hope to foster a space where we can listen attentively to other people’s religious experiences in order to learn and to uplift the multiplicity of ways that religion can play out in our lives.
