In this interview, Enuma Okoro shares how her journey to writing and creative work was shaped by paying attention and finding beauty in the act of creation. She has found that the path towards God often looks different from what we’re told and is constantly unfolding.
Early in his career as a chaplain, Bill Gaventa, Director of the Summer Institute on Theology and Disability, spent time listening to the families of children with disabilities. He recognized their longing for community as it was much like his own. In this interview, Bill shares how his call came out of his own struggle to feel a sense of belonging, and how the desire for connection within people gives him hope.
A faith that does not ask questions stagnates and maybe even risks death. A faith however, that seeks after Christ and wonders about the mysteries of an unseen God is alive and fresh and can be more readily equipped to handle the examinations the world may throw at us.
