UPDATE Jan. 6, 2022: the replay of my conversation with Victoria Moran has been posted here. The interview part goes from about 25:07 to 48:32 (starting with an introduction by Victoria).
I’ll be the guest speaker at the Compassion Consortium online service on Sunday, December 26. The service will be at 4 pm Eastern time (= 1 pm Pacific = 2 pm Mountain = 3 pm Central) via Zoom, and last 90 minutes; the conversation with me will be about 15 or 20 minutes.
Topics will likely include my research on early Christianity, why the historical Jesus was vegetarian, and why this matters today. If you want to hear me, you can register for the service here. (You have to order “tickets,” but they’re free.) If you miss the service, there is often a replay of past services on their web site.
The Compassion Consortium is a non-sectarian and interfaith religious center. They offer spiritual guidance, support, and fellowship to vegans, vegetarians, animal rights activists, animal lovers, and all humans who care about and advocate for animals and the planet, in a wide variety of faith traditions (in the past, Hindus, Catholics, and Muslims have appeared, among others). It is especially a home for those who feel excluded from their traditions because of their compassion (that’s me!). The leadership team is Reverend William Melton, Reverend Sarah Bowen, Victoria Moran, CHHC (AADP), RYT, and Reverend Erika Allison.
