All Things … Episcopal: A great and challenging beauty of interpreting Scripture

In this episode … we hear a sermon that was delivered by Clare Stern-Burbano and Dani Valencia Montoya on May 7th for Youth Sunday. They addressed the challenges and healing spaces that studying scripture offers us as followers of Christ.

Additionally, they also have a conversation about what the sermon writing process was like, what types of prayer and research processes they went through, and what they felt the Spirit was moving them to say to the congregation, but especially young people, as they discern who, what God is to them in their lives.

Our hosts

The Rev. David Kendrick — St John’s Episcopal Church, Springfield, the Rev. Collin Larimore — Grace Episcopal Church, Carthage, and Clare Stern-Burbano — Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City host sessions that include conversations, interviews, and even an occasional sermon.

Our podcasts

We want to introduce the Episcopal Church from multiple perspectives and with different voices, utilizing social media to find out what questions students may have about who we are and what we do. Guest speakers, including college students from around our diocese, are already being scheduled for future sessions.

We do not currently have a physical presence on college campuses in our diocese, but we think podcasting offers a great opportunity to meet young adults where they are and share our faith in a way that is personal, comfortable, and always accessible. We hope that these sessions will be a bridge to connect college students with local parishes and with other young adults.
