I was at Wild Goose in Hot Springs, North Carolina this past weekend and got to talk with Frank Shaeffer who recently published “Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God“, and all three of us here at TFF are longtime fans of Peter Rollins who sometimes calls himself an a/theist. The point is that there is definitely some flirting with atheism going on in progressive Christian circles. So when we advise you to Never Pray Again are we basically staking out an atheist position? Watch the video to find out.
Aric discovered he is religious and not spiritual in a Chan Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. These days he inflicts that religion on audiences and congregations who bring him out from his home in Portland, Oregon. He does this while fathering two wild heathens, writing everything but this week’s sermon, speaking in front of crowds large and small who fail to properly vet his credentials, and husbanding the amazing Stacia Ann. He is a world-class Game Master, a pacifist, an over-activist, and a number 8 on the Enneagram. His influences include James Alison, Pomplamoose, Pema Chodron, Iain M. Banks, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stephen R. Donaldson, Chipotle chicken burritos, John Howard Yoder, Cowboy Bebop, and the highland bagpipes. He still cannot grow a beard.
