Tony Jones, Subverting Norms and Stupid Preschool Moments (Homebrewed CultureCast)

To start things off, Amy has a lovely story in which she was humiliated by other preschool parents. It’s worth a listen simply for that.

But there’s so much more! We welcome Tony Jones, one of the founders of the Emergent Christianity movement, to the show. He and Christian recently attended the Subverting the Norm Conference, and Tony stirred things up by subverting the norm of what people were talking about at Subverting the Norm. (He made some critical observations is what I’m trying to say.) If you’re into the soap opera of theologian interpersonal relationships, you’ll enjoy this interview.

Toward the end, we talk a bit about the death of Margaret Thatcher and the tragic suicide of Matthew Warren, Rick Warren’s son. Mainly, we’re just pretty pissed that anyone would celebrate the deaths of another human being. Then we say goodbye to Brennan Manning in maybe a not so appropriate way. Jordan blames the Piatts.
