Religica Co-Founder Michael Reid Trice had an opportunity to speak with Dr. Patricia O’Connell Killen, who is Professor of Religious Studies and a Senior University Fellow at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. An historian and theologian, her scholarship focuses on Christianity in North America; especially on the Pacific Northwest. Killen is a primary editor of Religion and Public Life in the Pacific Northwest: The None Zone. On the 40th anniversary of the eruption of Mount St. Helens, Trice and Killen spoke about pathways to wisdom, how we carry it, when we practice it, how we encounter gratitude, and, of course, the “nones.” Take a listen!
