Everything Happens for a Reason: episode 6

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 final episode, Chrissy and Ben talk about everything from menstruation to the liturgical seasons as they discuss the seasons of life and our tendency to rush through suffering to get to healing. In our rush, are we bypassing important lessons and wisdom that emerge from suffering, from illness, from separation, and from death itself?
