Each episode includes conversations about a current project or passion, some random current events and a few surprises. This is basically an excuse for me to talk with interesting people about interesting things. Thanks for tuning in and please tweet along with me at @breyeschow and hashtag #brcandfriends !

Not sure if folks have seen the #TakeDownJulienBlanc  tweets, but, I am encouraging folks to act, if for no other reason to have this kind of "coaching" exposed for the abusive world that it truly is.

Introduction

A native Northern Californian and 3rd generation Chinese/Filipino, Bruce has lived in San Francisco since 1998. An ordained Presbyterian he was the founding pastor of Mission Bay Community Church and in 2008, he was elected the Moderator of the 218th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). He now earns his keep as a writer, speaker and consultant/coach with the Center for Progressive Renewal.

In his writing, speaking and living, Bruce is committed to expressing a Christian faith that is beautifully complex, unimaginably just and excruciatingly gracious. He also believes society and the church are strengthend by talking about such issues as: denominationalism and the future church; faith and technology; race and politics, parenting, urban living, etc.

Bruce earned his BA in Asian American Studies, Philosophy and Sociology from San Francisco State Univeristy (1991), his MA from San Francisco Theological Seminary (1995) and an honorary Doctor of Divinity from Austin College (2011).

Bruce is the author of the eBook, The Definitive-ish Guide for Using Social Media in the Church (Shook Foil Books) and Words Matter: Curating health space for helpful conversations on race (2013) his writings can be found on PatheosThe Huffington PostRed Letter Christians and others.

In his spare time you may find Bruce riding his motorycle, cheering on the Oakland A's, playing Settlers of Catan, tinkering with his fantasy sports teams or chauffeuring his three daughters around The City.
