The Faitheism Project Podcast Join The Conversation!

What is the Faitheism Project Podcast? In a nutshell, it’s a frank yet congenial conversation between a devout atheist and a Presbyterian pastor that seems impossible on paper and yet works! Despite coming from two seemingly diametric opposite places on the philosophical spectrum, atheist film & TV writer/producer A L Katz and Presbyterian Pastor RandyContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast Join The Conversation!”

The Faitheism Project Podcast Season Two, Episode One: “The Conversation Continues”

There’s an excellent joke that even an atheist can get: “Q: How do you make God laugh? A: Tell him your plans”. Mel Brooks made that exact idea the theme song of his movie “The Twelve Chairs” — “Hope For The Best, Expect The Worst”. Disruption is simply one of Life’s possibilities. Disruptions happen organically:Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast Season Two, Episode One: “The Conversation Continues””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 41: “Spirituality & Healing, Part Deux”

The title of this podcast doesn’t do it justice. Sure, there’s plenty of good conversation about spirituality and healing, but there’s really so much more. Maybe we should call this one “Spirituality, Healing & Some Amazing Storytelling”. In this one, Randy, um, lets his hair down. He pulls back the covers and talks frankly aboutContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 41: “Spirituality & Healing, Part Deux””

The Faithiesm Project Podcast, Episode #28: “The Detour”

There’s a well-known joke: how do you make God laugh? Tell him your plans. That’s kind of how episode 28 started. Randy and I had a whole other show planned (which will now be episode 29 — name two people with whom you could share a desert island). We never got that far. Some background,Continue reading “The Faithiesm Project Podcast, Episode #28: “The Detour””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #26: “There’s A Story…”

The whole point of a spiritual journey is to discover truth.  Yours, the universe’s — and, if you’re a theist — God’s.  That journey is “our story”. And, if we find what we’re looking for, it’s natural to want to share that fact.  To, tell our story. Along the way, our stories zig and zag. Continue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #26: “There’s A Story…””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #20: “Can An Atheist Experience Grace?”

Hopefully, this moment from our recent past, is familiar. President Barack Obama singing “Amazing Grace” captured something essential about grace itself.  And what it is.  From all appearances, grace is a thing to be wanted.  We should all aspire to live in “a state of grace” if by “a state of grace” we mean… ahContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #20: “Can An Atheist Experience Grace?””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #10: “Can Spirituality Overcome History?”

Personal history. Cultural history. Political history. Tribal history. We all have history. Sometimes that history can be quite a “cross to bear” as we set out on our spiritual journeys. But, must we be prisoners of our history? Are we victims of it? Can we ever be masters of it instead? How much of ourContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #10: “Can Spirituality Overcome History?””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #7: “Spirituality & Activism, Part 1”

by A L Katz & Randy Lovejoy Ideally, a spiritual journey connects you to the world outside your head and all the other creatures in it. You see your place in the world on a micro and macro level. You find inner peace and a path toward further enlightenment. Then, once connected, ideally, your spiritualityContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode #7: “Spirituality & Activism, Part 1””

The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 5: “Spirituality + Drugs = ?”

If you do it right apparently, spirituality is the best drug ever. Never mind getting high, spirituality can get you connected — to everyone and everything in the world. But, if your spirituality needs a boost — we have chemistry. Even before Christianity introduced sacramental wine to its rites (alcohol is as much a drugContinue reading “The Faitheism Project Podcast, Episode 5: “Spirituality + Drugs = ?””
