New podcast launch Sept. 15! “Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived”
“Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived” a new podcast featuring the faculty of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will debut Friday, Sept. 15. The podcast aims to encourage and challenge listeners to deepen their theology and live out their faith in Christ.
New 30-minute episodes will be released on the 15th and 30th of each month. Each episode will feature a conversation with various Seminary faculty exploring the ways in which theology permeates all aspects of life. Jessica Bordeleau, coordinator of digital publishing, serves as producer and host; facilitating topical discussions with one to three faculty members.
“The faculty at Concordia Seminary are renowned for their contributions to religious studies and to the church at large. ‘Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived’ puts that knowledge in the hands of listeners,” Bordeleau said. “This podcast is for anyone who wants to explore theology and the ways it applies to everyday life.”
In the podcast’s first episode, “Where is Jesus Right Now?,” Seminary President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer discusses the symbolism in the new stained glass windows in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on campus. He asks: “Where is Jesus now? If we don’t emphasize what Christ is doing now — that the crucified One is risen, ascended and in the control room … you create a vacuum, and a number of things happen in the vacuum.” To hear more, listen to the episode!
In the second episode, “When a Preacher Can’t Speak,” Professor of Historical Theology Dr. Joel Elowsky shares some personal insights into his own vocal cord disfunction, which left him unable to speak for four years. “It was truly one of those dark tunnels,” he said. “I was totally reliant on God with this one.” Tune in Friday for a candid discussion about theology and life.
Beginning on September 15th, 2023 “Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived” will be available on Scholar, most podcast platforms including Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. It will also be found right here on the Concordia Theology website!
