Authentically Christian. Getting real to help our Culture.

Authentically Christian. Getting real to help our Culture. January 30, 2020
I recently had the honor to be a guest interviewed on the BiCurean Podcast. I had only learned of this greatly needed podcast in the past year. It is hosted by two people on a mission – a mission to help heal our broken culture and to inspire us toward a less polarized way of being and relating to one another in society. In their words:

What is BiCurean?

BiCurean takes typically combative topics and teaches them to play nice. Our view is that the mainstream reactionary rhetoric divides us and only helps those invested in the status quo. We seek to find answers beyond the most obvious. Join hosts Aicila and Erik as they dig into topics ranging from social and political to geeky and fun. Erik and Aicila are looking for the “BiCurean Moment” a point where contradictions meet.

Erik and Aicila are looking for the “BiCurean Moment” – the point where contradictions meet.”

Show Notes:

Rev. Roger Wolsey spent some time talking with us about his efforts to meet people who come from different perspectives and get to know them. He identifies as a liberal man who wants to reach across the aisle and get to know the men he has spent time judging. We loved his articles, “Tough Guys Need Friends,” and “Ending the Civil War. Ways to Engage.” His wisdom, humor, and dedication to a better world were inspirational. We hope you enjoy this conversation and please reach out and let us (and him) know what you think!
 Aicila Lewis

(Aye-ee-sila) (she/her/hers) is a Director of Motivation, an Organizational Strategist for Dreamers and Underdogs, an Asker of Hard Questions, a Community Builder, and a prolific writer. An unapologetic geek, she may be dressed as a Star Trek cos-playing Minion or a Portal test subject (complete with portal gun). Lewis is an Apocaloptimist; she knows that it may all go horribly wrong, but assumes that even the zombie apocalypse will have a bright-side. A well-known Colorado Progressive Leadership Fellow, Lewis was named One of the 100 Women we Love by Go! Magazine in 2011 and awarded a Special Certificate of Congressional Recognition in 2013 for her community work. Lewis is blessed to have two fantastic children and an extensive polycule to support her in her various hijinx. Especially her long term partner and favorite co-conspirator, Tim Murray-Wyles

Erik Kosnar
