Subversive Stillness is Robert Monson’s book, a devotional on decolonizing the Christian faith. We talk Christian ethics and a little about his work.
In this episode I introduce my friend Dr. Drew Hart who is a professor of theology at Messiah University in PA. He is the author of two books including, Trouble I’ve Seen, and the latest, Who Will be a Witness? In part two of a two-part series we discuss:
- Dive into his latest book, “Who Will be a Witness? Igniting Activism for God’s Justice, Love, and Deliverance”;
- Decolonizing white Christianity and white supremacy;
- Rejecting domesticated white Jesus;
- Unpack what the church of the future can look like for marginalized people and all.

Welcome to Season 4 of the Faith in a Fresh Vibe podcast! This is the AUTHOR’S EDITION, where I invite my friends to come and share the books they have authored in the past year. To open the season I invite fellow Canadian Jonathan Puddle to chat about his book, “You Are Enough”. In this episode we take a dive into spiritual formation, why contemporary Christianity has struggled to deal with emotions, and practices of contemplative spirituality.
We close Season 3 with this final episode centering the voices of BIPOC Christians and other marginalized people too. Assimilation to dominant culture is typically the way marginalized people can belong in contemporary churches. Is there a better path? There is, and I outline part of that journey in this episode. It follows a book project coming out in 2021 by the same title. Life out the fulness of your humanity by embodying your gifts and abilities in your own skin. Finding your liberation is tied to belonging to community that sees you for you. Don’t give up on Jesus, belonging is out there.

2021 started off with the proverbial "bang" as the world watched in horror as the riots at the US Capitol Building unfolded. We all had a sense of both dread and awe as we watched the unthinkable happen. For racialized minority, it was also a visceral in your face...
We are now in the season of Epiphany, one of two feasts the early church celebrated along with Easter. Epiphany marks the Gospel revealed to the Gentiles through the story of the visiting wise men. I've always found it peculiar the story of the Magi. Something stoked...
2000 years of patriarchy have undoubtedly diminished the powerful words of the two women in our readings. Today we will centre one, a voice that comes to us in the form of a song. “Magnificat anima mea Dominum.” It sure sounds better in Latin. Mary's Song, or the...
I have, for a long time, advocating the de-centering of Sunday morning worship. It's the most cost intensive monument of the church, and one we need to re-think in a post-Christian context. I'm not saying throw it all away, but we should be able to re-think its...
This is the final post that concludes a series on racism in the church that can be downloaded as a pdf. The purpose of the series was to alert and inform primarily white Christians on ways to engage their own racism and racism in their communities. In this final...
Thrive. Ideas to lead the church in post-Christendom.
“Thrive”, is a guide to help unlock features in you, and your church, to emerge as leaders and co-creators in our cities, neighborhoods, and beyond. With the increasing number of people claiming no religious affiliation, it may be surprising to learn core values like purpose, justice, spirituality, and love remain important. The stage is set. Our culture presents a great opportunity for the church that seeks to live out the Gospel in a post-Christian world.
