Episode 005: Abraham Allende
It's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy another episode of Coffee Break.
I love talking with people who have interesting stories to tell. And Abraham Allende -- former Cleveland sportscaster and current bishop of the Northeastern Ohio Synod of the ELCA -- has many.
Language has been a central part of Bishop Allende's career, from teaching high-school French to broadcasting Cleveland Indians games under the name Allen Davis. And he continues to speak, teach, and write professionally today -- though now it's from the pulpit.
Despite any misgivings you may have about organized religion, I think you'll enjoy our conversation about the power of language and the messages we choose to share.
We also talk about what it means to be called to a vocation. (You know, like writing. Or teaching. Or whatever it is you feel called to do.) Oh, and the importance of being authentic. All good stuff.
