POINTS OF CONNECTION PODCAST
The final episode of Points of Connection season two launches this Friday, Feb. 5 and features guests Kate Barrett, Associate Director of Liturgy, and Becky Ruvalcaba, Assistant Director of Outreach.
When we think about sources of spirituality, liturgies, sacred scripture, and church doctrine often come to mind. But can our own experiences and stories also be a source of how we encounter truth about who we are and who God is? In this episode, we talk about the intersectionality of our identities, how we discovered them, and what glimpses of God we were able to catch in the process. Becky also shares how and why cooking tacos in her backyard is a love language.
