Why Deconstruction Isn’t Enough + Candice Marie Benbow

Katelyn and Roxy talk with author and theologian Candice Marie Benbow who has some strong words of wisdom — and conviction — for anyone publicly critiquing the church.

Deconstructing. Dismantling. Decolonizing. The last several years have felt like all the Ds all the time. It’s, well, disorienting, destabilizing, dismaying … OK, you get the picture. The point is: we’re all feeling a little shaky as we try to navigate tough questions that often cut to the heart of what we thought we believed.

On this episode, Katelyn and Roxy talk with author and theologian Candice Marie Benbow who has some strong words of wisdom — and conviction — for anyone publicly critiquing the church. If you want to point out problems, she says, you bear some responsibility for guiding people to solutions.

Plus: we explore all the metaphors.
