    Pilot Episode: Transcendent Beginnings with Cory & Colin

    Last year, co-hosts Rev. Cory Bradford-Watts and Colin Amato were inspired to create a webcast while in ministry training at the Center for Swedenborgian Studies. Motivated by a curiosity about the religious traditions and spiritual knowledge of others they crossed paths with at the Graduate Theological Union, they decided to turn on a camera and start talking! This interview also available as a video here:

    In this pilot episode of the Transcendiots webcast, filmed in spring 2018, Cory and Colin talk about what inspired the name of the show, what they hoped to achieve through the project when they started it, how spirituality, entertainment, and pop culture cross paths, and more!

    Rev. Junchol Lee on Being Buddhist, Taoist, and Swedenborgian

    In this episode of the Transcendiots webcast we talk with Swedenborgian pastor Junchol Lee about how the God-less philosophies of Buddhism and Taoism led him to the God-centered aspect of Christianity. Troubled by the ideas of karma and reincarnation that form the basis of Buddhism, he soon turned to Taoism, but quickly realized he was also missing a connection to the one Divine source found in Swedenborgianism. Watch and listen as Rev. Lee describes how mystical experiences affirmed his unique interfaith approach to life and brought him back to a life of ministry after a time of doubt.
