Wander Profile


English, Christianity, 1 seasons, 14 episodes, 5 hours 23 minutes
Wander is a podcast by two young mothers in the church seeking to explore the ways we voluntarily and involuntarily cover up our inherent personhood given to us by God. We will discuss what it means to strip away our false identities to rediscover Christ in ourselves. The various paths Orthodoxy provides toward this awareness will be shared alongside our own personal narratives on this topic.
