In this final episode of their series highlighting voices of faith from outside their individual particular faith traditions, pastors Sarah, Erica, and Steve look at the contemporary voice of the late Rachel Held Evans, who made a profound impact on many millennial and Gen-Z Christians even though she only had the chance to write a few books before a reaction to medication took her life.  As a former journalist who grew up in the town famous for the Scopes Monkey Trial, Rachel Held Evans brought a sharp and insightful mind that helped other Christians to look at why they believe what they believe, what things the Bible actually says, and what things people have just been told or assumed the Bible says.  Her approach to faith has made it safe for people to ask questions, to seek to become more loving, to live in the tension of the paradoxes and mystery of faith, and to rediscover what it means to be a "woman of valor" who lifts up others and amplifies the voices of others.  Hers is definitely a voice worth listening to, and if you're not familiar with her, we'd invite you to get an introduction here in this episode of Crazy Faith Talk!
