Our new season kicks off with an honest and courageous conversation with the Rt. Rev. Mariann Budde, ninth bishop of the Diocese of Washington (D.C.). The author of several books, among them the 2023 release How We Learn to Be Brave: Decisive Moments in Life and Faith, Bishop Mariann occupies a unique role in our church as a spiritual leader in our nation’s capital. She is refreshingly visionary and humble in her writing and leadership, reflecting with a welcome vulnerability on her own experiences of disappointment and discernment, as well as the gifts and costs that come with following Jesus. In this season of anticipation and new beginnings, as we draw nearer to the joy of Christmas and move toward welcoming our bishop-elect, her words are an encouragement to be braver in speech and action alike. Don’t miss this compelling Advent offering!
