Being a lifelong learner is essential in our life journey of embodying and extending divine love. Below you will find different videos, books, blogs etc…that we have found to help aid in that journey. We will be updating this page several times a year.
Note: Several of the books we recommended will be at our resource table at Neighborhood church.
Rachel Held Evans – Unraveling and Re-Raveling the Bible
Rachel Held Evans was one of the most inspiring people to me and thousands of others. She has a way of seeing God that paved a way for me to see a better, more loving God. This is a great place to start if you’re new to her work.
Episode 86 | Richard Rohr and the Alternative Orthodoxy
This is one podcast episode I listen to every year. Each time I find something new to take away with me. It helped me reclaim the word “orthodoxy” into my spiritual practice.
Tyler Ford Explains The History Behind the Word “Queer”
This is a great video that explains the history and vitality of the word “Queer.” It helped me unpack all the emotions and liberation that this word can carry.
What is the Bible? Rob Bell
This book made the Bible come alive for me. It’s academic, funny, insight fun and inviting. I’ve recommended this book dozens of times and gotten excellent feed back. This book is for anyone who has interest in the Bible, but it has felt cold or not relevant.
Transforming Austen Hartke
Austen is a trans man who shares his story of finding his fullest self and how it fueled his faith. He goes through biblical and theological points that people often wrestle with. His story is remarkable.
