Reading and 'Riting and Heretic - S2 E1 feat. Dr. Karyn Wiseman, Dr. Elesha Coffman, and Dr. Derek Olsen
Welcome back from our summer break: it's the Priest Pulse back-to-school episode!
In the roundtable segment, Dr. Karyn Wiseman and Dr. Elesha Coffman discuss the struggles of seminary institutions and the future of religious education. We talk about Dr. Coffman's article on Religious Dispatches "Are We Entering the End Times for Mainline Seminaries?" We also play a game of "Pokemon or Early Church Heretic."
Colin interviews Dr. Derek Olsen about his book "Inwardly Digest: the Prayer Book as Guide to a Spiritual Life," how he found the Episcopal Church as a Lutheran, being a clergy spouse and lay theologian, and more.
Ben and Colin get the Last Word and discuss cultural shifts that effect the future of parishes and the priesthood.
