From host Matt Conner:
If you've hung around The Rabbit Room over the years, then you'll likely recognize the name and wonderful work of writer and speaker Helena Sorensen. She's a frequent contributor to The Rabbit Room site as well as a presenter at Hutchmoot. She's often featured with our friends at the Story Warren as well. As the author of the Shiloh series as well as The Door on Half-Bald Hill, perhaps her meaningful prose has found a home on your shelves, too.
After charting a theological course with Thomas McKenzie (which you shouldn't miss in our first episode), I wanted to continue the conversation with Helena because I had been privileged enough to see her creative journey up close. I knew that she'd become a fountain of wisdom about this whole process.
When I first met Helena, she was a disciplined writer who was obedient to her craft and devoted to excellence. But she was also completely in the closet. Over the years, it's been so heartening to watch the ways in which she's grown to find an audience, and then to serve that audience with encouragement, coaching, and the authentic sharing of her own story. I've watched Helena walk through this very process of partnering with the Spirit to bring something to the world. And I've watched her offer it with open hands.
On this episode, I asked Helena about her journey to date and what she thinks about the idea of chasing excellence, finding her worth in what matters, and this whole idea of calling it good in the first place."
