On episode 5, Reverend Dan and Rabbi Matt host the first guest to the podcast: Imam Islam Mossaad. Imam Islam has been serving the Islamic Community of Bryan-College Station Mosque since January 2017.
After Rabbi Matt and Reverend Dan talk about the significance of bedazzling Ash Wednesday and the connections between shaking the Jewish lulav and waving the Christian palm fronds, the interfaith duo discusses the importance of lamentation in our respective faith traditions. If lament is such a large part of our Judeo-Christian life, shouldn't we embrace and practice it more in the face of so much brokenness and chaos? How might our faith and communal life benefit from intentional lamentation in our present context?
In Episode 3 of the Reverend Dan and Rabbi Matt podcast, the Lone Star clergy discuss recent activism in College Station and Austin, as well as transgender bathroom bills and the Transfiguration of Jesus. Just what were Moses, Elijah, and the radical rabbi from Nazareth collaborating about up there, and what does that have to do with our need to form coalitions for social justice across our differences today?
In this week's episode, Rabbi Matt and Rev. Dan talk about empathy from their respective faith traditions. In the face of rampant pride and territorialism these days, Henri Nouwen's "poverty of heart" and Abraham Joshua Heschel's "praying with his feet" are helpful, hopeful articulations of today's Christianity and Judaism. Somehow the rabbi and the pastor throw a Moses and a Jesus action figure into the mix, too.
In this first episode of The Rev. Dan and Rabbi Matt Podcast, the rabbi and the reverend talk about the paths that led them to College Station, Texas, and the interfaith justice work that brought their paths together.
