Sabbathways the podcast brings you glimpses of historical religious writings from diverse traditions throughout the U.S. and beyond. It is one part religious story time, one part electric organ dreamscape with a dash of historical context.
Every episode offers a different religious tradition’s texts—texts that explore the meaning of life, the presence of God, our place in society and beyond. These texts speak to current day issues and are enlivened by reimagined pop songs on the organ.
