    Really enjoyed this interview and converstaion. I had never thought about trauma and worship in this way before. Serene Jones was so good to listen to. Wish you could interview her in the future on her other book, "Feminist Theory and Christian Theology."

    Thanks for a really good season of interviews. I particularly enjoyed the episode with Cynthia Rigby on Mary Daly and this episode.I hope you continue this program in the future.

    I also really enjoyed your discussion with Kimberly Knight about her church in second life. I hope to go out and participate in the near future and so was interested that it had been going on for 3 years. Perhaps you could do a more in depth interiew with her next season.

See this blog here? It's like we're having a party, and everyone wants to have a good time at a party, right? It's cool if you want to be critical, but if you're rude, well...then you won't get to party any more. And that would suck. So don't be rude.
