Ravel Podcast is a Christian theology round-table discussion show, hosted by Josh Lieuallen, Stephen Henning, and Emily Rettinghouse. We each grew up in different parts of American Christianity, and we still keep thinking about how to take it seriously, even as we leave some beliefs behind. Join us as we ravel out our faith in a complex world, pulling on one thread at a time, seeking Meaning at the end of it all.
