Mandy Smith - Unfettered: Imagining a Childlike Faith beyond the Baggage of Western Culture

Mandy Smith, author of the newly released Unfettered: Imagining a Childlike Faith beyond the Baggage of Western Culture, joins Casey to talk  about the theological necessity of rest, play and a childlike approach to our spiritual lives. We go into not only how the practice of sabbath can take us deeper into the life of God, but how it can inform our commitment to social justice, activism and truly being a change in the world. 

Also mentioned in this episode are amazing quotes from G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, John Steinbeck, Thomas Merton and Jurgen Moltmann!
