Choosing Covenant: On Being Counter-Cultural Heretics

Listen Here

I’m not talking about the Hallmark Card version of “covenant” with perfect words under dusty glass hung in an echo-chamber of an empty room. I’m preaching about the coffee-stained covenant with tear marks and crinkles and words scribbled in the margins. I will tell the story of ancestral counter-cultural heretics and the covenant that claims us. Rev. Tandi Rogers is the founding Director of the Spiritual Direction Formation & Certification program out of Meadville Lombard Theological School’s new Leadership Institute for Growth, Healing, and Transformation. She is also an affiliate faculty on MLTS’s academic side. Prior to that, Rev. Tandi served the UUA in many roles from 2002-2022. (See the President’s Corner on page 3 for more information on Rev. Tandi.)
