What might the Biblical story of Jacob's relationship with Esau look like if we examined it through the lens of generational trauma dating all the way back to Isaac on the altar?

Or how might the story of Joseph resonate if we thought about it in context to Jacob's relationship with his mom? 

These are but a few of the stories Shannon T.L. Kearns examines in his book: "In the Margins: A Transgender Man's Journey with Scripture." In this book Shannon takes the reader through his life story to this point and compares key moments with classic bible stories you may be familiar with. Listeners, this episode was a treat for me. Having double majored in both Theology and Theatre I was thrilled to read these classic stories with a fresh perspective and I know you'll be eager to hear Shannon's perspectives!

Enjoy!

About 'In the Margins'

Father Shannon Kearns is familiar with liminal spaces. He’s lived in them his whole life. And while his experience as a transgender man has often made it difficult for him to fit in—especially in the context of Christianity—it has also shaped his perspective in important ways on complicated, gender-transgressing aspects of theology and Scripture. 

In the Margins weaves stories from Shannon’s life into reflections on well-known biblical narratives—such as Jacob wrestling with the divine, Rahab and the Israelite spies, Ezekiel and the dry bones, and the transfiguration of Jesus. In each chapter, Shannon shows how stories have helped him make sense of his own identity, and how those same stories can unlock the transformative power of faith for those willing to listen with an open mind and stand alongside him in the in-between.

Wow, get ready for a powerful episode which could fundamentally change the way you think about your body and it's energy!

That enough of a tease? Seriously though, in this episode Joe recorded his first in-person episode since before the pandemic! And what better person to interview in-person than Dr. Tyler Lewis at Self Unbound in Dallas, TX

We think you're going to be intrigued by this episode, you are likely to be curious about this episode, and we encourage you to explore what could happen when you allow yourself to be unbound!

Enjoy!

About Dr. Tyler Lewis

Dr. Tyler Lewis received his Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Hendrix College, and Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker College of Chiropractic. His initial focus of study was on brain-based rehabilitation through functional neurology, which later evolved into NetworkSpinal, a chiropractic specialty that focuses on creating neural efficiency and coherence between the various levels of the nervous system and the environment. Dr. Tyler now serves the community as a NetworkSpinal practitioner at Self Unbound in North Dallas, helping nervous systems evolve toward their most inspired, optimal alignment!

About Self-Unbound

NetworkSpinal Care is an advanced, holistic approach to healing and optimizing nervous system efficiency in order to improve your overall health and quality of life. Through care, your body will be guided in creating sustainable, efficient strategies within your nervous system to release tension and adapt to stress. NetworkSpinal Care utilizes light touches to specific areas along your spine where it’s the most receptive to input. These touches cue your brain to connect with and unwind tension along your spinal cord that is impacting your entire nervous system. This is vital to your health because your nervous system is the gateway to your experience and expression of life. It receives and interprets information from your body and your environment, then regulates how you respond and adapt to it. It is the facilitator of all healing, perception, movement, emotion, and thought.
