Bust out the birthday cake. The podcast turns a year old today! We’re celebrating in all kinds of ways, none of which involve clowns. 

First, I’m talking to Sarah Bessey (mystically-minded author and speaker). We’re looking at how we begin to reconstruct faith and what it looks like to reclaim some good old fashioned Christian terms…and which ones to leave behind. To hear more from Sarah, check out www.sarahbessey.com and her book Out of Sorts (or just win a copy below). Plus, she and Rachel Held Evans just launched a conference called Evolving Faith. Go to it!

Second, we’re celebrating by raising money to prevent refugees from experiencing homelessness in Seattle. 100% goes to refugees, and, if every listener gave $10, 500 refugees would have an extra safety net to keep them housed. We’ve got this, people. Donate HERE, and pass it on.

Last, it wouldn’t be birthday party without presents. We’re giving away a set of books from our favorite guests, including:

  1. Womanist Midrash by Wil Gafney
  2. Out of Sorts by Sarah Bessey
  3. Healing Spiritual Wounds by Carol Howard Merritt
  4. The Very Good Gospel by Lisa Sharon Harper
  5. Disarming Scripture by Derek Flood

To enter to win, head to A Better Story’s Twitter or Facebook pages and share the post from this week’s episode, or, if you’re avoiding social media, just email me at abetterstorypodcast@gmail.com.
