Alan Bean is a writer, spiritual counselor, and the founder of Friends of Justice. Alan has spent much of his life as a Baptist pastor, but after moving to Tulia, Texas for a potential ministry position, he learned that forty-six people (thirty-nine of which were African American) had been indicted on the uncorroborated word of a corrupt undercover officer. His unexpected and dramatic transition from Baptist pastor to criminal justice reform advocate led to the founding of Friends of Justice in 2000. Since then, Alan’s work has led to the formation of advocacy organizations and pro bono attorneys who have exposed a corrupt sting, freed dozens of people from Texas prisons, changed Texas evidentiary laws and led to the disbanding of over fifty mismanaged narcotics task forces throughout Texas. These victories laid a solid foundation for 15 years of bipartisan criminal justice reform in Texas. In this episode, Alan Bean discusses his experience as a progressive Baptist, his experience at seminary, pastoral ministry, as well as his work in criminal justice reform. ---GUEST LINKS---Friends of JusticeBook: Taking Out The Trash in Tulia, Texas Articles Twitter: @alanbean5——HOW TO SUPPORT THE SHOW—— Donate to our patreon account. Rate and Review us on iTunes Share the podcast with your friends—— REACH OUT—— Email us : Contact pageHost: @HaydenTheBruce@PragmaticChristPragmaticChristian.com

Tim Keefe joins us again for part 3 of our ongoing series in American Pragmatism, where we talk about the life and pragmatism of William James.William James is known as the “Father of American psychology," as well as one of the most influential philosophers to ever come out of the United States. After citing Charles Peirce’s pragmatic maxim in a lecture on religion, James became the leader of a movement in philosophy known as Pragmatism."Pragmatism asks its usual question. "Grant an idea or belief to be true," it says, "what concrete difference will its being true make in anyone's actual life? How will the truth be realized? What experiences will be different from those which would obtain if the belief were false? What, in short, is the truth's cash-val;ue in experiential terms”-William James, Pragmatism: A New Name For Some Old Ways Of Thinking—— MORE FROM TIM——“What Is Philosophy”(Mindgasms - Youtube)“Postmodernity”(James And The Giant Podcast)—— JOIN THE CONVERSATION——Give us your feedback in the comment section at the bottom of the episode page: History of Pragmatism with Tim Keefe Part 3 - William James——HOW TO SUPPORT THE SHOW——Donate to our patreonaccount.Rate and Review us on iTunesShare the podcast with your friends—— REACH OUT——Host: @HaydenTheBruce@PragmaticChristPragmaticChristian.com
American Pragmatism was born out of the conversations of a small group of men who called themselves “the Metaphysical Club”. It was a group made of lawyers, scientists, and philosophers, who shared an interest in Darwin, as well as a common conviction that beliefs have consequences.It was in this club where William James first heard Charles Peirce read his “pragmatic maxim”: “Consider what effects, which might conceivably have practical bearings, we conceive the object of our conception to have. Then, our conception of these effects is the whole of our conception of the object”.In this episode, Tim Keefe joins the show to talk about the most influential ideas of the Metaphysical Club, as well as Charles Peirce’s “pragmatic maxim”.—— MORE FROM TIM—— “What Is Philosophy” (Mindgasms - Youtube)“Postmodernity” (James And The Giant Podcast)—— JOIN THE CONVERSATION—— Give us your feedback in the comment section at the bottom of the episode page: A History of Pragmatism with Tim Keefe Part 2 - The Metaphysical Club——HOW TO SUPPORT THE SHOW——Donate to our patreon account.

Mason Mennenga is a writer, Master of Divinity student, and the host of Religionless Church, a podcast where he interviews theologians and innovative Christian thinkers, while featuring new bands and musicians. The concept “Religionless Church” is an expansion on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s concept of religionless Christianity, a concept that envisions a faith outside the constraints of institutionalized religion. In this episode I talk to Mason about his faith background, religionless christianity, as well as his thoughts on process theology, pyrotheology, and his involvement as a youth worker at Solomon’s Porch church, in Minneapolis. @HaydenTheBruce@PragmaticChristPragmaticChristian.com
