Retailing God. Podcast: Live At Hales Segment 1 of 3

f_crown_05_h There is no question that retailing God is becoming big business. But what is the thoughtful, spiritual creative to make of it? Does the T-shirting of faith trivialize God? Do the "bobble-head Jesus figures," diminish the divine or accentuate God's humanness in Jesus? Is making money off of retailing God an abomination like moneychangers in the Temple or a wonderful way to blend faith and making a living? Does a high-end, artful fashion statement represent a more appropriate direction for integrating faith and fashion? In this episode of The Kindlings Muse we explore the high and low art of the "Retailing of God" enterprise. We start with a special feature from our own Bill Hogg, "Mr. Hogg goes shopping," followed by our guests: Shawn McNally from Vox Sacra, internationally awarded stylist Annie Willhoite from the Bocz salon and David Wahl from novelty retailer Archie McPhee.
