In my writing about faith, I’m always trying to keep my footing on the highwire. I hope that struggle speaks to people.
Thanks to Sister Julia Walsh for inviting me to be her guest on Messy Jesus Business. We talked about the arts, the usual suspects (Greene and O’Connor), and the Roman Catholic Church as both muse and provocateur.
Walsh is a writer and a Catholic sister living in community in Chicago, where she resists “comfortable Christianity” and has a hand in all kinds of good work, like the Kolbe House Jail Ministry. Her writing about faith is as challenging as it is inspiring. Follow her on Twitter @juliafspa
