Voices of Advent: Ted Jennings on Awakening to the Impossible

Popular theoblogger and pastor Tripp Fuller of the Homebrewed Christianity Podcast caught up with a few of our favorite progressive Christian thought-leaders at the American Academy of Religion convention last month, and invited them to reflect on the season of Advent. We’ll be posting one video response each week as the church waits and anticipates the coming of God.

This week, we hear from Ted Jennings, Professor at Chicago Theological Seminary and Methodist Clergy, who poses the challenge and promise of Advent.
