Sophia is the Greek word for wisdom and within the story of Christianity, different traditions – such as the Eastern Orthodox Church – have adopted the feminine imagery of Sophia as an icon of wisdom. I have chosen Sophia as the name of this podcast series because of the people I’ve chosen to interview; I believe, as they share glimpses of their journeys with our Triune Creator, they are voices of wisdom that we all can learn from in this podcast series – as each of them have profoundly spoken into my life; I encourage you have a listen and let their wisdom seep into your pores.
The fourth podcast in the Sophia Series is Katie Jo Vasquez. Katie Jo is a student of Early Church History and an MDiv candidate at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. An expert talker, ammeter listener, visual artist, poet, and die-hard Trekkie, she and her lovable lap-dog, Gus, live in Rochester, NY; the land of cold and snow. Katie Jo works on inter-faith dialogue and cooperation through the American Baptist Church, with whom she plans be ordained upon graduation. For Katie Jo, ministry is being a bridge between two people who would, ordinarily, never be able to find God in each other. You can learn more about Katie Jo by going to Baptist Is A Dirty Word, clicking on the other links that I have provided for you in this post.
