Today on the program we are diving into a subject that we’re often told not to talk about. It can be a difficult subject to discuss, even with friends, for fear of being misunderstood, judged or pigeon-holed, or not being as informed or educated as others.
Sometimes this topic is something people don’t even want others to know about them, and in other cases it is the first thing they want people to know.
We’re talking about RELIGION. This episode is called DEVIL’S ADVOCATE and I am looking forward to discussing some of the most compelling questions about religion today with Rev. Sheldon Steen, pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church and doctoral candidate in Religion of Western Antiquity at Florida State University.
Rev. Steen has been working in ministry for fifteen years, earning a Master of Divinity and Master of Theology from Columbia Theological Seminary. He began his professional work in youth ministry in Florida and Georgia, and then as the Pastor of Jasper First Presbyterian Church in Jasper, Florida.
After serving as a Parish Associate at Faith Presbyterian Church in Tallahassee, Sheldon directed the campus ministry at UKirk Tallahassee, serving Florida State University and Florida A&M University. He joined Christ Presbyterian Church in June, 2020, leading the northeast Tallahassee congregation through the COVID-19 pandemic and at a time when almost every element of our lives, including our spirituality, is politicized.
