I am so excited to bring on David Hayward, the NakedPastor, to this episode. In 2010, after 30 years as a pastor, David left the ministry to focus on NakedPastor and the community that was emerging around it. It’s now his full time gig! He believes that questions are the answer to authentic growth. It’s why he uses words and images to challenge the status quo, deconstruct dogma, and offer hope for those who suffer under it.
With a Masters in Theological Studies, as well as Diplomas in Religious Studies and Ministry, and University Teaching, David is no stranger to belief systems. His art expresses the stories and struggles of spiritual refugees and those who question, doubt or reject the confines of religion. Each piece encourages important conversations and acts as a catalyst for critical thinking.
When David started NakedPastor, it was a novelty but has since grown into a diverse global community of independent thinkers who support each other on their journey to personal spiritual freedom. Committed to truth, authenticity and understanding, he supports LGBTQ+ people and groups, BIPOC and women artists, creatives, journalists (and more), and encourage you to do the same.
So, sit back and enjoy my conversation with David Hayward, the NakedPastor, on this episode of "Coffee with Keith."
