Here’s my interview with two founding editors of Firebrand, a brand new online magazine aimed at enlivening intellectual discourse in the Wesleyan tradition: managing editor Maggie Ulmer of “Plain Truth: A Holy Spirited Podcast” and lead editor David Watson, dean of United Theological Seminary.
Sometimes Methodists are accused of lacking a strong intellectual tradition. Often contemporary Methodism is accused of lacking identifiable theological parameters. Methodists are often missing or underrepresented in American Christian public conversation, theological, cultural and political.
Firebrand is hopefully the beginning of a new and momentous chapter in Methodist thought and spiritual life, in which the Wesleyan tradition speaks compellingly both to heart and mind.
Enjoy our conversation.
