Rob Bell & Mike Morrell Interviewed on Day1!

…but not on the same episode, alas. ūüôā

[Note: This was originally posted on my previous blog on May 4, 2011.]

A few weeks ago, Rob was in Atlanta as part of a short tour for his uber-controversial book Love Wins. He stopped by the nationally-syndicated Day1 studio to do this in-depth interview with show host Peter Wallace:

(Note: This interview is WAY better than Martin Bashir’s!)

Then last week,¬†I was in Atlanta: ¬†Seeing family and friends for Easter, and sharing about the¬†Wild Goose Festival¬†with a wide variety of people in the area –¬†Punk Torah,¬†Metro Atlanta Emergence¬†(with whom I had entirely too much fun at Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium¬†and La Fonda), and¬†KSU¬†professor Derek Spalla.

While in the ATL, it worked out for me to¬†sit in the studio with the good Mr. Wallace and share why the Goose is so important to me, and why it just might be important to – dahn dahn dahn! – the future shape of North American spirituality. No really. Why? You’ll just have to watch & see! But seriously – I’d love your feedback on what we’re discussing here.

Finally, you see that t-shirt I’m wearing? It’s from the local Raleigh-based Guru Guitar, a kickin’ guitar shop that serves the Triangle area and beyond. I do mean ‘beyond.’ My buddy, Guru co-owner Eugene Reinert, crafts his custom-made Rhino Guitars for musicians the world over. So if you’re in the market for peerless sound, come on by. Then you & I could have coffee next-door at¬†Cup-A-Joe afterward.

Update: As I mentioned here yesterday,¬†Maybe you‚Äôve been reading my blog for a few days now, or maybe you‚Äôve been a reader for years. Either way,¬†I‚Äôd like to meet you at the Goose this June 21st-24th!¬†If you enjoy (or are infuriated by) what I post here, I‚Äôd like you to take advantage of a special ticket offer that my friends at the Goose have granted me permission to extend:¬†Purchase your festival passes¬†by next Thursday, February 16th, and¬†receive 15% off your total purchase (not including camping) by entering ‚ÄúFriendOfMike‚ÄĚ at the checkout!¬†¬†Purchase your passes¬†here, enter ‚ÄúFriendOfMike‚ÄĚ where prompted, and save. For one week six more days only. And then we can camp together.¬†:)¬†¬†

    OKay, reading your reference to the guitar shop, I had to put this out there:
    I wrote a song about a visit to a vintage guitar shop, and aging, and respect for the creative traditions (guitar building AND music making). If you’re curious, hop on over here:
