Hey friends! Welcome!
Theology Upstream is a virtual book study that incorporates podcasts (audio recordings) as well as blog and email conversations. It's a way for us to connect with one another even though our lives and schedules can be a little unruly at times.
Right now we're reading Liberation Theology for Armchair Theologians, by Miguel De La Torre (who will be live at MPBC in October 2017. Click here for more information about that). You can purchase the book at Amazon, Cokesbury, or Barnes & Noble. Copies are also available for purchase at Myers Park Baptist, email Anne for info about that.
Starting this week (July 2-8) we will post an audio recording on this blog for you to listen to as you read along with us. Scroll down to the previous blog entry for a sample on what those posts will look like. The example below is a podcast episode from the Just Mercy study we did early this spring. I used it so you could see what the audio recordings will look like and begin to play around with how to listen, etc.
For this study of Liberation Theology... we'll try to stick to one chapter at a time, but can't promise we'll be rigid about that. As we work through the book, we encourage everyone to post comments and questions here so everyone can benefit from a large group conversation. Comments on the blog might also make it into future podcasts!
Stay tuned for the first podcast coming in just a few days. Until then, happy reading!
