Touchy Subject: Deconstruction Part 1

This episode was recorded on July 5, 2021.
On this episode, we discussed our panel's journey through faith deconstruction. 
What is faith deconstruction? It is the taking apart of an idea, practice, tradition, belief, or system into smaller components in order to examine their foundation, truthfulness, usefulness, and impact.
Introducing our Deconstruction Panel:
Zachary Gureasko is an attorney in Nashville. He has a husband who is his favorite human in the world, and together they enjoy lifting weights, rescuing animals, and eating all of the food. They have four dogs and four cats of their own, and they regularly foster animals (right now we are a revolving door for cats). They are in the process of trying to adopt a two-legger!
Cayla was raised in the evangelical church and started deconstructing about 5 years ago. Born and raised Tennessean, currently living in the DFW, TX area. She lives with her husband of 7 years + two kids. She is going back to school for Criminal Justice and just recently started as a court appointed special advocate for children in foster care.
Jed Foster is a grant writer and staff member at the St. Francis Xavier Lay Missionary Society. A graduate from Lee University, Jed later attended two years of language study in Beijing, China. He was received into the Roman Catholic Church in October 2020 after a six-year spiritual journey out of Protestantism.

About the Podcast

Touchy Subjects Podcast
The Touchy Subjects Podcast has been designed to unpack the proverbial elephants in the Church- i.e. the topics no one wants to talk about! We want to create space for an open dialogue on issues like social justice, mental health, women in leadership, homosexuality, legalism, and more. 

The panelists that are speaking on this podcast have been intentionally chosen to tell their story from their perspective without censorship. Some panelists are pastors or church leaders, some panelists are deconstructing their faith, and some panelists are subject matter experts on a topic whose guidance can help this audience.

Our mission is not to expose the Church, but to have conversations that will open eyes, open ears and open hearts toward growth, healing, and unity.
