NYOJoe 004: Many years ago, I regularly traveled past a church with a large monument of the Bible on their front lawn often causing me to reflect on our relationship to the Bible. So letâ€™s talk about backroads, monuments, and the witness of Scripture.Â
NYOJoe 003: The sound of my grandmotherâ€™s coffee percolator is singed into my memory. It reminds me of my place at her table. So I’m talking about a time machine, a percolator and a spot at the table.
NYOJoe 002: A book on the church’s silence about and complicity with racism, challenged me to no longer remain quiet about LGBTQIA inclusion in the church.
NYOJoe Episode 001: A little Hamilton, a bit of a book, a podcast and a Bible story have me thinking about humility, striving and satisfaction.
