This week I’m talking with Josiah Neufeld, a Vancouver-based writer whose journalism, essays and short fiction have appeared in The Walrus, Hazlitt, The Globe and Mail, Prairie Fire, The Vancouver Sun, Geez Magazine, The Winnipeg Free Press, Rhubarb and elsewhere. Josiah grew up in West Africa, the son of Mennonite missionaries. In this episode, Josiah shares his story and what he values most about the cultures that shaped his spiritual path.
This conversation leads us gently into usually rather barbed territory – colonialism, evangelism, and such – but I think you’ll enjoy Josiah’s thoughtful nature and the warm-hearted way he is integrating many cultures, practices and patterns into his own personal spirituality.
