A synaxis is a liturgical gathering. It can also refer to an unveiling. The synaxis podcast is a weekly gathering hosted by Scott Jones for the purpose of finding the life giving, healing word of the Gospel in the words of the weekly lectionary passages. Join Scott Jones and his guests each week as they explore the lectionary texts together. This is the place for a Gospel rich, grace saturated and properly worldly lens on the week's lectionary passages, all in 25 minutes or less!
