In episode 104, we continue our two-part series with a lay and clergy person called in discernment to an Anglican religious order.

Today host Barbi Click speaks with the Rev. Maria Evans, MD. She’s currently the interim assistant priest at two parishes in the St. Louis
area for a few more months, before her ministry of interim takes her to her next destination.

Maria’s discernment to ordination as a priest was a winding path of many years, and she shares some of the stories from her journey.

101 Beginning Season Two with a focus on Baptism



Welcome to our second season of JesusHacked podcast.


We’ve a special focus on Baptism this season, and what better way to start out than a conversation with Bishop Wayne Smith and podcast host Dan Handschy. Dan’s also the bishop’s appointed lead on a task force looking at how we can strengthen the rite of baptism in this community.

Can you describe how the last gasps of Christendom affect us in the Diocese of Missouri?

How might we focus attention back on baptism?

What changed in your life at your baptism, from your perspective now looking back, what was the shift that happened there?

How would our diocese re-focused on baptism, how would the life of the congregations   feel different in April 2020 (the bishop’s retirement date) from now?

As you are looking at your retirement and doing that reflection, that continuous reflection on your own baptism, what do you think God is bringing to birth in you at this moment in your life?
