    Season 2 Episode 1: Intimate Justice at the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, North Carolina

    Hey guys! Welcome to season 2 of Unstuck! I can’t believe I have been doing this for a little over a year and I am absolutely thrilled at what I get to share right out of the gate in season two. This first episode was recorded live at the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, North Carolina. If you are not familiar with the Wild Goose Festival I encourage you to look it up. Having this particular conversation with these particular people in this particular space was so incredibly meaningful to me and I am so honored to get to share it with you. Intimate Justice…what does that look like for women? What kinds of messages about sex have we “caught” and were “taught” in church for better or worse? That’s what’s on the agenda for this first episode. Come and see.

    With Dr. Susan Perkins, Missy Cava, Shacoya Graham, and Sarah Causey

    Ep. 7 Unstuck: A Conversation with a Gay Christian

    This podcast episode's interview might be one of the most sacred I ever do. Amanda Kerr is a third year graduate student at Wake Forest Divinity School where she is preparing for ministry. I met Amanda about four years ago and have had the honor of witnessing an incredibly tender and significant part of her life. Amanda is so many things. She is warm, intelligent, wise, brave, and caring. She is also a gay Christian. Today I get to share with you her thoughts on how she has worked to remain faithful as a Christian while also being honest with others and authentic in her identity. Her thoughtful and intentional responses will challenge and encourage you. Come and see.

    Unstuck is a podcast facilitated by Dr. Emily Stone, licensed marriage and family therapist, supervisor, professor, and ordained minister, where Emily and her guests have heart to heart conversations about areas of our lives where we tend to get stuck. Oh, and laugh. Emily loves to laugh and learn about people through their stories...so there is plenty of that going on, too.

    Ep. 5 Unstuck: A Conversation on Power and Culture

    In this podcast I get to share with you my dear, courageous, strong friend, Lauren Barnett. Lauren is one of my most beautiful and eclectic friends and our conversation is going to prove it. Lauren most recently has been a housing advocate with Habitat for Humanity in Charlotte, North Carolina where affordable housing has been a crisis for years. The focus of our talk is on issues of power and culture, which led us into some pretty dynamic and diverse topics such as Beyoncé, the womanist movement, the purity movement, evangelicalism, finding a church where she can exist as a black woman, the nature of kingdom work and the meaning of spiritual formation. We went wide and deep! I know you are going to hear some things that are going to make you think. Come and see!
