Season 1: Hope & Heresy

On the inaugural episode of Hope & Heresy: Life on the Religious Left, our hosts Peggy and Sarah introduce the season by discussing a liberal-religious approach to contemporary life.

What is heresy and why is it necessary in today's conflicted and complicated world? The word "heresy" is challenging for many people, but the heretics in history have been critical to moving religious thought forward. On the inaugural episode of Hope & Heresy: Life on the Religious Left, Reverend Sarah Lenzi and Reverend Peggy Clarke discuss their choice to reclaim the word "heresy" as they embark on a project to examine contemporary topics through a liberal religious lens. Join us for this opening discussion of spirituality, religion, and community in the 21st century.
