Ben and Laurence unpack their experience at the Formed to Proclaim 2019 Forma Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. We discuss the conference and then we hear from conference goers of their impressions. Over the next several weeks we'll be releasing our Forma interviews and live episode.
Episode two of season four is here! Ben and Colin are joined by the Rev. Jeremy Smith of Hacking Christianity. Rev. Jeremy Smith is a United Methodist Elder serving as Senior Pastor at First United Methodist Church in Seattle, Washington (USA). He blogs about faith, young clergy issues, technology, internet theory, and geeky topics at HackingChristianity.net. Jeremy discusses with us the current state of the United Methodist Church and much more. Ben and Colin learn about the current divisions in the UMC, and realize how ignorant they are of Methodism.
