Tripp Fuller – Growing in Faith, Family, and Friendship as a Process Christian

In this episode of Conversations in Process, Jay interviews renowned podcaster and process theologian Tripp Fuller, digging into the more personal side of his faith and theology. Tripp is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theology & Science at the University of Edinburgh. He received his PhD in Philosophy, Religion, and Theology at Claremont Graduate University. For over 13 years Tripp has been doing the Homebrewed Christianity podcast where he interviews different scholars about their work. In 2020 he published Divine Self-Investment: An Open and Relational Constructive Christology.

In this conversation, Jay asks Tripp to trace his theological development from his formative years, asking what influenced his perspectives and how he grappled with issues such as the authority of sacred texts. Jay then asks of music, and what religious or spiritual role this played and continues to play in Tripp’s life—a topic which led to a number of insights about religious pluralism, the function of symbolism, and the logic of the one. In closing, Tripp talks about how he shares his faith with his children in light of their various phases of life, and the importance of the religious virtue of friendship which he sees as core to the message and life of Jesus.
