Ep 10 – “How We Learn to Be Brave” with Bishop Mariann Budde
Bishop Mariann Budde is the bishop and spiritual leader of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C., and the Washington National Cathedral. Prior to her election in 2011, she was a parish priest in Minneapolis for eighteen years. She has appeared on PBS NewsHour, Meet the Press, Good Morning America, and the Today show, among others. Bishop Budde earned her master’s in divinity and doctor of ministry from Virginia Theological Seminary.
Bishop Budde believes that Jesus calls all who follow him to strive for justice and peace, and to respect the dignity of every human being. To that end, Bishop Budde is an advocate and organizer in support of justice concerns, including racial equity, gun violence prevention, immigration reform, the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons, and the care of creation.
Her sermons have been published in several books and journals and she is the author of three books:
- How We Learn to Be Brave: Decisive Moments in Life and Faith (2023)
- Receiving Jesus: The Way of Love (2019)
- Gathering Up the Fragments: Preaching as Spiritual Practice (2007)
- Bishop Mariann’s Writings (Episcopal Diocese of Washington)
