Are you wrestling with your faith practice? Do you wish you felt at peace everytime you went to a place of worship? Are you a member of the LGBTQ+ community AND a practicing Christian who is seeking their own unique place in this world? 

Have we got the episode for you!

In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes Rolf R. Nolasco Jr. on the show to discuss his book 'Hearts Ablaze: Parables for the Queer Soul'. Joe and Rolf get into a great discussion on the origins of the book, how the contents can resonate with so many different people, and why Rolf still practices his religion even in the face of opposition.

Enjoy!

About Rolf R. Nolasco Jr.

Hearts Ablaze: Parables for the Queer Soul | An Interview with Dr. Rolf Nolasco, Jr. - Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary

Dr. Rolf R. Nolasco, Jr. is Rueben P. Job Professor of Spiritual Formation and Pastoral Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Il USA. As a queer person of color whose country of origin is the Philippines, Rolf works at the intersection of critical and liberative psychology, theology, spirituality, and affective neuroscience to address the complexity of the human condition and the potential for human flourishing. He is the author of The Contemplative Counselor: A Way of Being, Compassionate Presence: A Radical Response to Human Sufferings, and God’s Beloved Queer.

About Hears Ablaze

A new look at ten selected parables of Jesus, that expands the scope of interpretation of each story to highlight God's extravagant welcome of all people. The perspective in the reflections is deeply personal and written to be used by both individuals and groups. Queer affirming churches, seminaries, and retreat centers will benefit from this resource as they continue to champion the flourishing of their queer siblings in Christ.

Are you ready to Rise and Shine!? 

This week's guest sure knows how to exactly that as we welcome 2010 USMNT World Cup Veteran Jay DeMerit to the podcast to discuss his career!

There was a documentary made about Jay's career called 'Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story'. It chronicles his life and career showing how, through hard work and effort, Jay was able to work his way up the English Football pyramid to captain Watford in the English Premier League AND become one of the starting centerbacks for the United States in the 2010 World Cup!

It's an incredible story and Jay was an absolute delight to have on the podcast, enjoy!

About Jay DeMerit

Jay DeMerit (@D6MERIT) / Twitter

Jay DeMerit’s story reads like those of many American players who tried to launch a professional career between the end of the North American Soccer League and the beginning of Major League Soccer. DeMerit took his game to England. After several tryouts and time spent playing park and pub soccer, DeMerit got his shot and ended up playing in the Premier League. Just one difference, DeMerit’s story starts in 2003.

A successful college player, DeMerit couldn’t catch on with any MLS club, spending a year with the Chicago Fire reserves. Holding a European passport, he decided to move to England and try there. As decisions go…. A 2004 training game against Watford got him a contract and the next season he was crucial to the squad that won promotion to the Premier League. By 2007, he was on the USMNT and made the 2010 World Cup squad.

DeMerit left Watford at the end of the 2010 season, signing with 2011 MLS expansion club Vancouver.

In the Fall of 2011, a movie about DeMerit’s move to England and eventual rise to prominence as a Premier League player was released. Titled Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story, the movie was partially funded by fans through a Kickstarter campaign.

Jay DeMerit announced his retirement on July 24, 2014. He finished his Vancouver Whitecaps tenure with 70 appearances and one goal.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

We hope everyone had a fantastic end to 2022 and a brilliant start to 2023! What a way to kick off an exciting *SEVENTH* season of the podcast with a fabulous conversation ft. Mother Gopi Gita!

If you're looking for a new approach to parenting heading into the new year we've got you covered because in this episode Joe and Mother Gopi dive into her "leadership parenting" style (where she literally wrote the book on it!). They discuss how to empower your kids with the tools and skills they will need for now and later in life. Remember, we're not merely raising good students, we're raising great leaders!

Enjoy!

About Mother Gopi Gita

Mother Gopi Gita coaches parents and educators internationally, and has served children directly in the classroom for over 20 years. Her clients grown children lead teams. She practices bhakti yoga with family.

About 'Leadership Parenting'

As a parent in leadership, you are compelled to ensure that your child can navigate their social environments. Whether you manage teams at work, serve constituents at a local or national level, or actively volunteer in your community, leadership is at your core. When you receive feedback that your child struggles with friendships at school, and when you see them angry, lonely, or sad, it breaks your heart.

As a parent coach and educational consultant for the International Society ISKCON Ministry of Education, Mother Gopi Gita mentors thousands of parents, teachers, and children with classic bhakti principles from the East. With her expert guidance in her book Leadership Parenting, you will learn to:

  • Boost your child’s ability to connect with others
  • Meet your child’s three basic needs
  • Fortify your child’s work and purpose
  • Discover your child’s innate leadership skills
  • Empower your child to lead any group they’re a part of
  • Help them make and keep happy, productive friendships
