Listen to the unedited conversation between Tsh Oxenreider and Jenn Giles Kemper, available now! On Thursdays following a newly-released interview episode, we’re releasing the long-form conversation. We hope it feels like you are sitting in a chair at the table with us.
As we were producing our latest episode, On Journeying: Travel, Traditions, and Turning to the Psalms with Tsh Oxenreider, we realized something: There’s SO much that falls on the cutting room floor. As you’ll hear in this conversation with Tsh, she and Jenn both dove much deeper into Tsh’s cross-cultural living experiences, her work as a guide on Literary London trips, and her discernment process as she has walked unexpected paths in her vocation.
You’ll hear more of what made Tsh feel lost at sea on her faith journey — and how the liturgical year brought her back to God in new ways. Jenn and Tsh talk about mental health, explore Advent and Christmastide in new and ancient ways, and Tsh reveals some personal insight into her decision to close her popular blog at the end of 2020.
For the shorter, produced version with narration from Jenn: Listen to On Journeying: Travel, Traditions, and Turning to the Psalms with Tsh Oxenreider. In that episode, we pull the threads of what it is to embrace the shadow and light of the advent season, and Jenn offers a prayer and a reflection question, too.

About Sacred Ordinary Days with Jenn Giles Kemper: Sacred Ordinary Days with Jenn Giles Kemper explores faith where it hits the pavement of work, relationships, creativity, and real life.

On Tuesdays, join us for a conversation with folks whose words, work, and witness have shaped our team’s understanding of God and practice of faith.
