Hosted by our very own Reverend Peggy Clarke and our neighbor Reverend Sarah Lenzi of the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, New Jersey, Hope & Heresy is a podcast for everyday people who want to live meaningfully and ask big questions about our complicated world without arbitrary doctrine or oppressive religious practice. Each episode examines a contemporary topic through the lens of liberal religion and ends with a moment of hope and a way to get involved in your community.
