WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #417 is Kaitlyn Schiess. Kaitlyn Schiess is the author of The Liturgy of Politics: Spiritual Formation for the Sake of Our Neighbor, and her writing has appeared at Christianity Today, The New York Times, RELEVANT, and more! She has a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary and is pursuing a doctorate in theology from Duke Divinity School.

This conversation is SO important and Kaitlyn is just full of so much knowledge, love and grace. In this episode, Kaitlyn shares about how having answers to theological questions can truly change our faith, and the ways that theology affects the solutions we pursue on political topics and problems. Kaitlyn also talks about the reality that Christians have always had Bible verses to back up bad theology which often causes us to see ourselves as the person needing to be rescued, and never really as the “bad guy”. I love when she speaks directly to women and says “You are made in the image of God just as much as men are. And the commission that’s given to you at the beginning of creation – to rule and reign and steward creation, to be God’s representatives on earth – that’s the same commission for you. And we are going to do that poorly if we are not well-trained in scripture.” It is so important for all of us to fully step into that commission, study scripture faithfully and allow Christ to cover all aspects of our lives. There is so much more to this conversation that you don’t want to miss!
