Making Spaces with Rev. Sarah Heath

Making Spaces with Rev. Sarah Heath

By Sarah Heath
We live in a social/political climate that thrives on making us divided. Changing that will require proximity and relationships, but the most inclusive spaces are often aesthetically uninviting and falling apart. This show wants to change that! Join Rev. Sarah Heath as she shares her dream of moving us from a D.I.Y to a D.I.T (do it together) culture. Each week she chats with an expert about making space- aesthetically, theologically, socially, politically etc. This is a show where no church/synagogue/community center closet is left unturned. Imagine Queer Eye/Marie Kondo/The Vicar of Dibley.

The One where Sarah talks to Designer Riley Hall
I am so excited to introduce to you Riley Hall a dear friend of mine, and an incredible designer. Riley "creates space" as a designer in the staging industry. He knows what it takes to make a space seem intentionally styled, but approachable. Our conversation went everywhere from how to lay out a room, to why everyone should have a signature candle.  This show will first air while we are all still experiencing social distancing and sheltering in place during the covid-19 outbreak, and so it may seem weird to talk about gathering spaces but everything we talk about pertains to your personal space- and maybe during this time you can reimagine the gathering spaces we are all going to return to.  Find out More about Riley on instagram @rileyhalldesign The podcast he mentioned is "Dear Alice- Interior Design" from LaunchPod Media  Our introduction music is “it can be done” by Airae via epidemic sound.

2. The One about the Pandemic
Nothing like launching a podcast about the need for proximity while a pandemic is causing us to have to have to distance ourselves, but during this time there are unique ways to continue to  “make space” for connection and community that could last longer than the outbreak itself. This week I talk to Rev. Jeremy Smith. Jeremy is a pastor of a church in Seattle near one of the areas that the CDC has deemed a "hot spot." He and his team had to figure out how to cultivate community during "social distancing" way before the rest of us knew what those two words meant together. Our conversation covers how to ensure you are creating circles of connection, and why that connection is so important even if you aren't a a "church" type human. To learn more about Jeremy, check out his longtime blog Hacking Christianity (HackingChristianity.net), which weaves together weird combinations of faith, technology, geek culture, and United Methodist commentary. I hope you are inspired to maintain social connection even from a distance!  Our introduction music is “it can be done” by Airae via epidemic sound.

1. The one where Sarah talks to Kevin Garcia about closets
Kevin Garcia is a spiritual director, intuitive soul coach, writer, speaker, and my dear friend. We talk about why cleaning out closets is so much more than just organizing, why being hospitable is more than just what can be seen, and why labels are actually important. Out of site and out of mind is not a real thing.  Disclaimer *I believe in authenticity, so I don’t sugar coat thoughts or language, but we bleep out the big cusses (I also think bleeping is funny.)

Trailer- "Making Spaces"
No church storage closet is left unturned as we restore, renew, and reconcile. We're talking Queer Eye meets Marie Kondo meets the Vicar of Dibley. (If Chip and Jo want to come too, I won't object.) We live in a social and political climate that thrives on making us more and more divided. We need proximity and relationships to break down this division, but our most inclusive spaces are often run down and uninviting.... and if we are honest smell a bit like a nursing home. This podcast will discuss how to transform the spaces where people gather — from churches, to synagogues, to coffee shops — into spaces that are inviting and make people encounter each other in meaningful ways. I bring my eclectic group of friends (think: experts on racial reconciliation and inclusion, musicians, artists, designers, athletes, comedians, actors, rabbis, pastors, drag queens, you know typical church folk) along for the ride to move us from a D.I.Y. culture to a D.I.T. culture -- Do It Together.  Join me, because when we make space nothing short of miracles are possible!  Our introduction music is “it can be done” by Airae via epidemic sound.
