A New Podcast from the Collegeville Institute
We often inhabit spaces in person and online where we only interact with folks who primarily look and think and act and practice faith like we do. Unlikely Conversations is a new podcast from the Collegeville Institute that breaks through our echo chambers by exploring civil discourse as spiritual practice. In its first season, each episode features two participants in the Multi-Religious Fellows program at the Collegeville Institute.
Beginning on April 22, tune in twice a month to hear host (and Collegeville Institute board member) Ellie Roscher facilitate a lively discussion between diverse Twin Cities faith leaders as they tackle thorny topics like racial justice, youth spiritual formation, and religious stereotypes. The guests on Unlikely Conversations model how to have brave and hopeful conversations in an era of religious polarization.
