CrossLeft Presents: The Rev. Tripp Hudgins and the Rev. Tripp Hudgins

Welcome to the show for the third week of December, 2005, the last show for 2005. Surely you didn’t think we could get through the entirety of Advent without an Advent sermon. Well, this week, just in time, in fact, we have one. And we also have something of a one-man show this week as the Rev. Tripp Hudgins delivers our music and is our featured speaker. Otherwise known in the blogosphere as the AngloBaptist, Tripp is the pastor at Church of Jesus Christ, Reconciler (http://christreconciler.blogspot.com), an ecumenical congregation in Chicago, Illinois. Tripp is a Baptist minister and musician who lives with his wife and their three cats and you can find him online at www.anglobaptist.org and you can find his some of his music at http://www.oneofthegirls.net. Long story on the name, but if you get a chance, do check out the band’s website and if you find yourself in Chicago, try to make one of their shows. And for that matter, try and catch up with Tripp at the Church of Jesus Christ, Reconciler. You won’t be sorry you did. And so this week, CrossLeft proudly presents, the Rev. Tripp Hudgins and the Rev. Tripp Hudgins.

Many thanks again to Tripp for his words and his music. Remember, you can find links to Tripp’s blog and music in the shownotes on our podcast host page at http://blogspot.crossleft.com. Well, that concludes the 2005 podcast year for CrossLeft. We’ll be taking a short holiday break and will be back in the second week of January of 2006. We trust that in the interim, you will join us in our prayer that 2006 will be filled with the love and justice of our Christ and a new season of peace on earth and in the hearts of humankind. From all of us here at CrossLeft, blessings for the remainder of this Advent season, Merry Christmas and may you each have a very joyous New Year!

CrossLeft Presents: Cheri DiNovo and Tapestry

Welcome to the show for the second week of December, 2005. I’ve got a large file for you today, mainly because our featured speaker this week, the Rev. Dr. Cheri DiNovo, has graciously provided us with a wonderful interview that runs close to a half hour and I just didn’t have the heart to cut it into two parts. I think you’ll see what I mean. So, I’m going to put our regular musical feature on hold this week so you can hear the interview uninterrupted. Dr. DiNovo serves as the senior minister to the Emanuel Howard Park Church in Toronto and performed North America's first legalized same sex marriage in 2001. She’s just released her first book, "Qu(e)erying Evangelism" published by The Pilgrim Press out of Berkeley looking at Derrida, theology and the lived experience of her Church. Dr. DiNovo also hosts a nationally acclaimed radio show called The Radical Reverend available on the web at www.ciut.fm, Mondays EST between 4-5PM. You can find Dr. DiNovo on the web in several spots, but the best place to start is perhaps her personal website: http://www.cheridinovo.com. We also hope this podcast will serve as your introduction to Tapestry, an incredibly interesting CBC Radio one program. You can find tapestry at http://www.cbc.ca/tapestry. And so, this week, CrossLeft proudly presents, The Rev. Dr. Cheri DiNovo and Tapestry.

CrossLeft presents: Joe G. and Yikes McGee

Welcome to the show for the first week of December, 2005. Our musician this week is Yikes McGee, a folk singer/songwriter from Baltimore, Maryland. Yikes describes his music this way on his website: Quote: I am waging war on right-wing propaganda, by using left-wing propaganda. I am driven to seek an end to the national nightmare, and a trend toward more liberal and progressive policies for peace and justice in the world. Do check out Yikes and his “protest songs for the new millennium” at http://www.yikesmcgee.com. Our featured speaker this week is Joe G. Host of the Beppe blog and the Beppe podcast. Joe describes himself as a forty-six year old in his fifth year of studies for a PhD in Social Welfare and his blog and podcast offer observations about religion and spirituality, social issues and pop culture from a Quaker and queer perspective. You can find Joe and the Beppeblog at http://beppeblog.blogspot.com and http://beppe.libsyn.com/. And so, CrossLeft proudly presents, Joe G. and Yikes McGee.

Many thanks to Yikes McGee for today’s music. Again, you can find out more about Yikes McGee and information about his music at http://www.yikesmcgee.com.
