Spiritual AF Sundays #34 - The Dangers of Dogma
Have you ever been told that the unfairness in the world - especially around issues like race, gender, or sexual orientation - is simply "The way things are"? When trying to understand if something is true, do you rely on objective sources like science or look to authorities such as religious documents or leaders?
In this week's episode of Spiritual AF Sundays, We bring on Reverand Mary Martin, Author of "The Seamstress: A Dystopian Tale," to talk about the dangers of dogma. Think that dogma is limited to just religious institutions - think again! Reverand Mary Martin gives you a glimpse of dogma's impact on us all by sharing personal stories. We also delve into how you can break free from dogmatic thinking. We also touch upon the book she published, "The Seamstress: A Dystopian Tale," which uses fiction as a lens to examine this overall topic.
