A nun, an astrophysicist and a Post-Christian walk into a radio show…

Nun DJ

I always enjoy chatting with radio talk show host Welton Gaddy, based out of Washington DC. His syndicated weekly show, in partnership with the Interfaith Alliance, airs on nine stations around the country. But they also rebroadcast the segments on their website. To listen to my talk with Welton about the state and future of [Read More...]

I had a chat with my friend and fellow author, AJ Jacobs, today on Skype. Aside from being a veteran journalist, he is the most experienced “human guinea pig” I know.

Just this morning, I posted a request to do a “trade-up” to help raise resources necessary to feed 5,000 people.

As you may know if you’ve read my previous posts, I’m in the process of doing an 18-month project in which I’m trying to figure out what it REALLY means to “follow Jesus.” One order of business my readers have suggested I take on is the miracles recorded in the Gospels.

If you haven’t already read from my post yesterday, I’m doing an experiment over the next 18 months to try and figure out what it is we really mean when we talk about “following Jesus.” Does he want us to be just like him? Does he want everyone to walk away from their families, jobs and [Read More...]
