#15: The Babadook

This week we invite special guest Jessica Messman Griffith, cofounder of Sick Pilgrim and author of Love and Salt: A Spiritual Friendship in Shared Letters, to the studio to talk trauma, horror movies and The Babadook. 

Can we ever escape our trauma? Can we leave behind the memories that haunt us? Can we protect the ones we love most from the ghosts that follow us? This week we explore what The Babadook has to do with the lectionary week of Year C, Ordinary 14, July 3rd. 

Jessica leads us in a penetrating discussion about how Jennifer Kent's movie, The Babadook, helps us better understand our grief and our pastoral ministry. 

So, dim the lights, hide beneath your blanket and prepare to meet your ghosts, it's time for another episode of Technicolor Jesus.
