Everything Happens for a Reason: episode 4

Theology Upstream Podcasts are a series of conversations hosted by two young(-ish) clergy, Rev. Ben and Rev. Chrissy, who are convinced that good theology still has something to say to people living their lives in the real world. With that conviction, Chrissy and Ben seek to read theological books and put their learnings into conversation with lived-experience.  Preparing for our 2018-19 study, Awakening the Body, Chrissy and Ben are publishing a series of conversations on Kate Bowler’s best seller, Everything Happens for a Reason: and Other Lies I’ve Loved.

In this fourth episode, Chrissy & Ben discuss the tension between surrender and acceptance. Following Kate Bowler’s examination of surrender and giving up in the prosperity tradition, Chrissy & Ben are thinking (out loud) about the fine line between having faith and accepting reality.
