On a Mission, Episode 11: Cameron Bellm

Today I’m talking with Cameron Bellm. About a year ago, she started publishing her writing on Instagram- and, y’all, it blew up!

She started publishing prayers during the Pandemic of 2020… they resonated… and they were shared and repurposed all over the world. She collected those pandemic prayers in an ebook. And now she’s writing a hardcover book. It’s about paying attention as a spiritual practice and being a contemplative in action. It will be out in hard copy in March 2022. 

She’s a writer, scholar, and mother who lives in the Seattle area. We talk about Russian literature, not needing to be God’s lawyer, and discerning what is ours to do. I think you’re going to love a sneak peek into the spirituality of such a sincere and thoughtful human being. 

Episode 18: Episode 18: A Radical, Eucharistic Life with Jamie L. Manson On a Mission

Jamie L. Manson wrote the column entitled Grace on the Margins for the paper for 12 years. She recently left that post to become the President of Catholics for Choice. We talk about her journey as an out-lesbian Catholic journalist. We talk about reproductive health as a human right. We talk about her deep sacramental spirituality. We talk about Pope Francis…who, by the way… does he read Jamie’s columns? Take a listen and see what you think. Find notes and links about this episode at http://www.molleendupreedominguez.com
