Thinking Baptists is a weekly show hosted by The Rev. Merianna Neely Harrelson and The Rev. Sam Harrelson on the topic of baptist life, polity, meaning, and exploration.
Thinking Baptists 20: No One Gets Out Alive: Merianna and Sam talk about how communities of faith create a sense of belonging and what happens when the community encounters a crisis of faith. Do you stay? Do you leave?
Thinking Baptists 19: Embracing the Chaos: The Revs Merianna Neely Harrelson and Sam Harrelson describe the benefits and challenges of congregational polity, notes, the digital dark age, and recording what matters.
Thinking Baptists 18: All The Wands: The Rev. Merianna Neely Harrelson and The Rev. Sam Harrelson reboot Thinking Baptists with a new episode for the first time in four years. They do a recap of Merianna’s ministerial journey as well as follow up to the last episode of the show with a discussion about women in baptist ministry in 2016. They also cover the topic of pastor search committees, and why the economy isn’t doing young ministers any favors when it comes to finding pastor positions.
