A Wild and Laughing God
A Dialogue with Tessa Bielecki and New Dimensions Radio

Have you ever imagined Jesus laughing? Tessa Bielecki has. She reminds us that he was the one who made sure there was plenty of wine at that wedding party we’ve heard so much about. Tessa loves to share her vision of the wildness in Jesus, God, and spirituality in general, and will inspire you to bring a fresh, playful, spacious approach to your relationship with the divine. She points out that while modern Christianity has grown terribly dull, the truth is, "God is like a tsunami. We never know what we're going to experience. We've turned Christianity into a dull, dry system, as though we have God in our pocket and can pull him out any time we want, like our little pet. God isn’t like that. God is wild and untamed." With her own brand of joyful reverence, Tessa offers practical suggestions that will help you break out of the everydayness of your spiritual practice, bring laughter and play into your relationship with the sacred, and rediscover the wildness in your own life. This program is hosted by Justine Willis Toms and explores the following topics: how Christianity has been "frisked, spayed, and tamed;" why having a regular daily practice can get you into trouble; why God is like the lion in Chronicles of Narnia; how you can tell if you’re a natural mystic; how you can make play a part of your spiritual practice.
