Reclaiming My Theology isn’t a space for perfection, it is a space for exploration.
At a basic level, this podcast is a weekly chance to explore values and ideas that may shape us, even if we have been unaware of them. But, it is more than that…
Womanist theologians have long called theology “God-talk.” Essentially, we make sense of God, not through indoctrination into systems of power, but by talking with each other and with divine. These holy conversations are beuatiful spaces to discover the God who has always been primarily identified as
“The Lord, the Lord,
a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger,
and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,
keeping steadfast love for the thousandth generation,
forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin…”
What if, as we listened to voices on the margins, to each other, and to God and found that God is better than we have imagined? What if we found that we could trust each other and ourselves on this journey and all become more free?
Brandi Miller has spent the better part of the last decade as a writer and campus minister. She started Reclaiming My Theology to form a community experience around faith deconstruction and reconstruction that wasn’t and isn’t led by white men.
She largely spends her time writing at the intersection of faith, race, and politics, plays music and writes with Common Hymnal, and develops justice programs for Christian college students.
Beyond that, she is a serial hobbyist who currently loves bougie cooking projects, competitive weightlifting, and attempting to craft and pour perfect cocktails and coffee.
It is her great honor to have you along on this journey.
