    Bartcast 54: Ched reflects on the theology and ecology of rivers

    30/04/2021 Duration: 36min

    In 2020 Ched gave this devotional for the Nomad Podcast in the UK (www.nomadpodcast.co.uk). In this devotion, Ched takes us on a journey down the Ventura river, where he lives in California, and goes on to open up the radical political imagination of the many biblical visions of rivers, in a world where colonization and empire habitually steal water and turn fertile places into deserts. Thanks to NOMAD for the recording and production - original version at https://www.nomadpodcast.co.uk/ched-myers-roll-like-a-river-n245/

    Bartcast 49: Mark Pestak - Jeremiah Ch. 19 and 21

    17/08/2020 Duration: 18min

    Occasionally we feature guest voices on our Bartcast. We are pleased to introduce you to Mark Pestak from Cleveland. Mark is a longtime participant in Bible study at the Catholic Worker there, which along with the Los Angeles house, is exemplary in the Catholic Worker movement for its devotion to scripture study. This is a community Ched has visited many times, and co-founder Mike Fiala has been very supportive of our Bartimaeus Institute since its beginnings, often sponsoring his community members to attend. Mark Pestak, a physicist, delivered this fine homily on Jeremiah Ch. 19 and 21 on Father’s Day 2020. His Community of St Peter is a Roman Catholic church excommunicated for its refusal to disband during massive closings of Roman Catholic churches in Cleveland by the Bishop over ten years ago. Ched had the pleasure of staying with Mark and his family during a visit to Cleveland in October 2000 to work with the Interreligious Task Force on Central America. Thanks to Mark for his permission to share this r

    On the Thursday morning of the BKI2020, Ched looked 'haunting' as it relates secrecy, lies and 'myths of innocence' plaguing our settler histories, and compares this to Jesus' diagnosis of, and unmasking of 'unclean spirits', both political (Mark 5) and personal (Mark 9). He looks further at Luke 11 (v24-26) and the twin healing stories in Mark (8:22-25 and 10:46-52) which speak to the complex healing and 'strong medicine' required in the journey of decolonization .

    On the Wednesday morning of the 2020 Bartimaeus Kinsler Institute: Unsettling Histories | Decolonizing Discipleship | hukišunuškuy, Elaine again set the scene for the day's work by looking at the place where her ancestors came to and their complicity in the impacts on people of the not-vacant land, but a land under siege by government programs to drive the indigenous inhabitants (Cree) off the land. Ched contrasts this with the story of the settlement of the area around the Ventura River Watershed.
