Anna and Jesse discuss two passages today, Genesis 11:1-9 and Acts 2:1-21, that they explore as being in conversation with each other. Jesse describes how these texts have often been viewed as in conflict with each other but he has a bit of a different way of seeing them. Anna relates a story about how her kids helped her view the Tower of Babel story in a new light. Jesse talks about the danger of conformity and wanting everyone to believe, look, and speak the same way. Anna finds good news in the beauty of chaos.
