Cynthia Bourgealt may be a sign of the resurrection of Christian spirituality that I suggested in A Point of Balance. Her ten minute podcast, “The Wisdom Teachings of Jesus: Beyond Belief and Into Practice,“ found at Sounds True is refreshing. Ms. Bourgealt discusses aspects of religious doctrine and spiritual principles in a manner much like a Pagan, except that her focus is upon Jesus.
I am certain that Ms. Bourgealt’s ideas will not be well received by the pseudo-Christians because of their hateful proclivities, but it seems the time for separating the grain from the chaff is long overdue. Of course, I did not purchase any of Ms. Bourgealt’s work because I am not a “Christian” now, but the foundational principles provided in this short podcast sound promising. Personally,I would love to see the spirit of Christ resurrected within Christianity, despite having been directed down a different path.
This is a short post because I simply want to bring this to the attention of Christians with a true heart and wary Pagans. I do not know if the direct link to the podcast will work because I am a member of Sounds True. Otherwise, any interested person should be able to find it by clicking on the link to Sounds True and looking around. Here is a link to their Weekly Wisdom (see: Producer’s Pick) which might also help if the other links don’t work as I would expect.
