Peace Talks is pleased to welcome Katelyn Beaty to the show! Our wide-ranging conversation with Katelyn began with Christian celebrity and continued to find its way to spiritual formation—particularly how the American church values the fast growth of membership over the quiet, slow growth of becoming like Christ. She reflects on the transactional, consumer-oriented nature of American spiritual formation and laments that we are not shaped to believe that pursuing justice is a part of Christian discipleship.
Katelyn Beaty is author of Celebrities for Jesus: How Personas, Platforms and Profits Are Hurting the Church and the editorial director of Brazos Press. She has written on faith and culture for several mainstream and Christian media outlets and co-hosts the podcast Saved by the City. A native of Ohio and graduate of Calvin University, she lives in Brooklyn, NY.

About the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace:
Justice and peace come from the inside out—from the overflow of a transformed heart. This belief led our founder, Bishop Todd Hunter, to start the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace in 2021. The Center brings together a diverse, interdenominational community of people who want to be formed in love to heal a broken world. Because “religion” is often part of the problem, we’ve created a brave, Jesus-centered space for dialogue, questioning, creating and exploration. PEACE TALKS introduces you to women and men who are working to undo oppression, leading to lives of deeper peace for all.
