Doing the Work Your Soul Must Have

Casey Stanton: On a Mission, Episode 15

If you’re like me, some days you just throw up your hands in frustration with the Catholic Church and just start cursing… before you do that today, it’s time to listen to Casey Stanton.

I first heard about Casey through the Catholic Women Preach movement. Her homily knocked me off my feet. It’s so good. She’s a community organizer, a pastoral minister, and a superb preacher.

You will not regret clicking here to listen to Casey’s take on the n in light of women’s ordination to the diaconate at this event organized through Xavier University:

Fast forward to minute 40 to zoom right to where she starts riffing on the Syrophoenician woman.

Episode 28: Episode 28: Raising Kids for a Just World with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann On a Mission

Today I’m talking with Lydia Wylie-Kellermann. She’s an author and activist I’ve admired for a long time, and I’m so happy to share her with you. Her latest book, The Sandbox Revolution, is a collection of essays from parent-activists around the U.S. It offers advice for raising children committed to social justice in the world today. Lydia offers beautiful forwards to each section of the book. When she’s not writing books, Lydia is the editor of Geez magazine, a paper-only publication that comes to your door four times a year with inspiration for living life more simply and justly. She also curates and edits the blog Radical Discipleship. You’ll love her spirituality of resistance. Listen in to our conversation about the value of print magazines, the challenge and blessing of raising kids in 2021, and how to manage when your kids *don’t* want to engage in activism…. enjoy!Links we chatted about in the episode:Radical DiscipleshipThe Sandbox Revolution: Raising Kids for a Just WorldGeez magazineJoanna Macy, Buddhist scholarJennifer Harvey’s Raising White KidsSupport the podcast:
