Show Notes

"Faith before doubt is about correct beliefs.  Faith after doubt is about revolutionary love.  Love is our ultimate goal."  (Faith After Doubt)
In this episode on the Deconstructing Mamas podcast, Brian McLaren, author of that quote, 
is a stalwart in the arena of faith and deconstructing.  Brian wisely and warmly guides us gently through the four stages of childhood/faith and how to work through them in ourselves and in our own parenting.

Plus, you'll find out his secret passion (hint: has something to do with sea wildlife...).

Plus plus, find out what's more important than being "cool."

You don't want to miss it!
