Kevin Wright is the pastor of First Covenant Church in Peoria Illinois and is also author of The Danse trilogy, a series of horror/mystery novels. If you are thinking that is a strange combination you'd be right, but it is also makes Kevin the perfect conversation partner surrounding the issue of what Christians are supposed to do with the holiday of Halloween. Get ready for a complex and "nuanced" (to use a word that came up a few times) discussion on All Hallow's Eve, All Saints Day, Harvest Festival, and Samhain. You can purchase Wright's books or find out more info at:

Nathan is a singer-songwriter from Peoria, Illinois who recently got a vinyl release of his new EP So Am I funded on Kickstarter. This part of our interview features a fascinating story about how he lost his voice (which is his livelihood!) and what he chose to do about it. You can find out more of his story, listen to his music, and purchase his book of the same name as the EP here:

Fr. Greg Lynn is the vicar of Epiphany Church in Peoria, Illinois. He also happens to be my pastor and my friend. On Sunday, August 20 he preached a message that had been weighing on his heart and mind, "What Does the Bible Say About Race?", and I wanted to offer a place for people to hear it. If you go to the PostConsumer Reports website for episode 54 you will find the slides that go along with the sermon.

The Mosley's are Stephen and Rachel Mosley, a husband and wife sing-songwriter duo from Florida. Their music is earthy and reflective and indicative of the Americana folk of the South. Their first full length album Ordinary Time was produced by Phil Madeira and co-produced by Jimmy Abegg. I got to sit down with them for an interview at UTR Media's Escape to the Lake festival. You can read more about The Mosleys and purchase their music at their website: http://www.themosleysmusic.com/
