Krista Tippett is the Founder and CEO of The On Being Project and host of the Peabody Award winning conversation, On Being, which she began 15 years ago as a weekly national public radio show originally called Speaking of Faith. On Being explores the big questions of meaning - What does it mean to be human? How do we want to live? Who will we be to each other? - and pursues deep thinking and social courage, moral imagination and joy, to renew inner life, outer life, and life together. Krista is also the author of multiple books including Speaking of Faith, Einstein’s God, and, most recently, the 2016 New York Times best-selling Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living, which opens into the questions and challenges of this century. She is currently working on her next book, Letters to A Young Citizen. Through On Being, Krista has had over 450 conversation partners over the years and each week On Being goes out to over one million listeners. In this episode of RePlacing Church, Krista Tippett joins me to discuss:

  • Making space for solitude and rest
  • Her background in journalism and evolution into her present work
  • Her journey of faith and public theology
  • The lifegiving power of friendship and community
  • Lessons learned and future ambitions

Jonathan Brooks is the pastor of Canaan Community Church in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood and the author of the forthcoming book, Church Forsaken: Practicing Presence in Neglected Neighborhoods. He is a community developer, hip hop artist and Chicago city director for Mission Year. Jonathan grew up in Englewood on Chicago’s south side, moved away, and eventually returned to build community. Together with his wife Miche’al and community members, Jonathan created the 5 Loaves Food co-op, providing healthy food options for the neighborhood. In this episode of RePlacing Church, Jonathan joins me to discuss:

  • The history and challenges of his urban community
  • White flight, disinvestment, and neglected neighborhoods
  • The narrative of escaping forsaken places, and why he returned
  • How a 'bifocal' perspective helps us to see brokenness and beauty at the same time
  • Why there are no God-forsaken places, only church-forsaken ones
  • The power of ownership and collaboration in a place
