Episode 3: God’s Foolishness
1 Corinthians 1:18
Guest: Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza
In this episode, Alex Patchin McNeill and Dr. Robyn Henderson Espinoza, Director of Public Theology Initiatives at Faith Matters Network, and activist theologian, reflect on a part of Paul’s letter to Corinthians naming “God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom” through the theme of wisdom. They explore resistance to empire as a willingness to sit with the difficult texts, and see possibilities for liberation through the act of proclaiming what others deem foolish to expose the ridiculousness of the empire.
