My name is Michael Scott Evans. I am a Texan by way of California... which basically means I value the avocado AND the smoked meats, and if you are able to combine both of those into a taco of some sort, you've basically found your way to my soul!
No I don't know how to surf, but "y'all" is firmly entrenched in my vocabulary.
As a student at Baylor University I studied Psychology and Communication, earning degrees in both. I furthered my education by completing a Master's of Divinity in Theology from George W. Truett Seminary.
Over the last 20 years I have held a variety of ministry jobs and volunteer positions. I have taught youth and college students, been a Spiritual Formation Director, and a Worship and Arts Pastor.
These days I find myself reading a lot of books on neuroscience, spirituality, and connection. If you spend any time listening to the podcast or reading my work you will find that I am heavily influenced by folks like Rob Bell, Brené Brown, Richard Rohr, and Pema Chodron.
If you were to force me to characterize my spiritual path right now I guess I'd call myself an Agnostic Buddhist that really loves Jesus....but check in tomorrow, I might be an Episcopalian!

In this episode I talk to Michael Evans about empathy, what it is and how it works. We also talk about our feelings, why dads are the MOST emotional, and develop our new brand… the Baptist Buddha!
