"Sacred Jazz" - Studio ASC #9

“Pronouns 101.” - Studio ASC #5

We focus on transgender awareness in this episode of Studio ASC. One commitment we make as Episcopalians is to “respect the dignity of every human being.” One way we live out that commitment is by respecting the right of every human being – no matter where they fall on the continuum of sexual orientation or gender identity – to name themselves ... including which pronouns they use. — Hannah Earnshaw shares “Pronouns 101.” Mike Kinman offers “Refusing to Erase.”

Quinn Cummings, "Coffee Ministry," "Religion as WMD," Remembering Zelda Kennedy - Studio ASC #3

Episode 3 of our Studio ASC Podcast In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, All Saints’ rector Mike Kinman offers a powerful challenge to Christianity’s misogynistic roots and author and actor Quinn Cummings addresses sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. Susan Russell reflects on what religious persecution is and what it isn’t -- and challenges the use of religion as a weapon of mass discrimination. Pasadena’s Dan Davidson shares the vision behind Rose City Church’s “coffee” ministry – a social enterprise providing both training for underserved youth and awesome coffee. Rick Bolton offers a backstage look at the annual Saint Francis Day Blessing of the Animals. Finally, we remember Zelda Kennedy … with an excerpt from one of her last sermons at All Saints: a powerful reminder of the transformative power of love to triumph even over death.

The Johnson Amendment - Studio ASC podcast segment

With the release of the GOP Budget Bill the Johnson Amendment is back in the news. For those who need a quick refresher, the Johnson Amendment (named for Lyndon Johnson back when he was a Senator) prohibits all 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations (including churches) from endorsing, opposing or fundraising for political candidates. It is what the IRS accused All Saints of violating back in 2005 and itis [a] what we successfully argued we had not violated and [b] we still support. So we're presenting this recent segment from our podcast "Studio ASC" with Mike Kinman andSusan Russell discussingthe nuances and ramifications of the Johnson amendment -- and why All Saints Churchcontinues to support it in the wake of these renewed efforts to eliminate it.
