This week on the podcast Hannah Gierhart makes her first appearance (she’ll be back as a recurring co-host on the semi-regular)! We chat through her story and why she identifies with the idea of being a spiritual misfit.
For any of you who grew up as a church kid in the 90s you can prepare to play Bingo while listening with categories including Psalty the singing songbook, DC Talk, The Donut Man and more. (If you have no idea what any of these words mean, don’t worry, you’re the normal one, and we only reference them in passing).
Amidst the banter and crackling sound effects of our fireside chat, Hannah shares in greater depth about the cognitive dissonance that can occur when you begin to experience seemingly conflicting brands of Christianity, or indeed different models of Jesus himself.
If you’re feeling deep in the dissonance, listening to Hannah might give you hope that working through it and finding the gold amidst the mud, is possible. More than that, worthwhile.
