Kindlings Muse Canada West — June 29

Two weeks ago, I took part in the third installment of the Kindlings Muse Canada West, a panel discussion that takes place on the last Monday of every month at Belle’s restaurant in South Surrey; this month’s discussion is now available as a podcast here.

My fellow panelists this time were Rikk Watts, professor of New Testament at Regent College; fellow Kindlings alumnus Allyson Jule, co-director of the Gender Studies Institute at Trinity Western University; and host Bill Hogg. And our topic this time was Deepak Chopra and his books Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment and The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore.

The next Kindlings event takes place September 28 at 7pm, so feel free to stop by if you’re in the neighbourhood.
