This episode is very different from recent episodes! Guest Ryan Lennon joins me to talk about religious “deconstruction,” a term that has been bouncing around recently in evangelical circles. What is deconstruction? Is it a good thing? Why is it a scary term to some? We also briefly discuss the Amazon Prime docuseries “Shiny Happy People.”
Ryan Lennon grew up in Evangelicalism and obtained Master’s Degrees from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in New Testament Studies and Old Testament Studies. He currently works in sales selling cybersecurity software to businesses, and he and his wife Jenny live in Cary, NC with their two year old daughter, Cami, and their six year old Golden Retriever, Barney. They have been attending a local Episcopalian church for the past several months, and this is the faith tradition they feel most at home in. Follow him on Twitter @ryanjslennon.
