Episode 42 features David Hayward, a name you may not be familiar with, but whose art you certainly are. Found everywhere as the @nakedpastor, David has a wide array of tools to share his message. In this episode we cover a lot of ground starting with an introduction into David’s art ranging from writing, water-colours, to his widely successful cartoons. As the #deconstruction picks up attention around social media, David recounts early moments engaging in deconstruction in thought and practice. We later discuss a shared connection from our pastor days in the Vineyard Church, and end with a hopeful picture for the future. Learn more about the man behind the illustrations.
