The Christie Gee Podcast - Jay Bakker on 'The Eyes of Tammy Faye' movie

In late September of 2021 Jay had a great talk with good pal and podcaster Christie Gee to talk about The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Christie was nice enough to share the interview with us so we could post this special cross-over episode! Enjoy and please be sure to listen, follow and subscribe to Christie too, because she's the best!!

The Christie Gee Podcast:

"In this Episode I welcome back my friend Jay Bakker for the third time!

We talk about the movie made about his family called 'The Eyes Of Tammy Faye' starring Jessica Chastain (who also produces the film) and Andrew Garfield! How wild would that be to have a major motion picture made about YOUR family?! I can't even imagine! Well...we dig into what that’s like for Jay, his thoughts on the film, personal stories about his momma, the influence his mother had on him in, how she felt when he made the decision to become a gay affirming pastor, how therapy has helped him during this time with the movie out in the world and more! I had a lot of fun talking to Jay as always! This movie gave me so many feels and I highly suggest y'all check it out! In theaters nation wide! " - Christie Gee

We're Not IBM

“I guess today what I wanted to do is come to you and say: ‘These are the things I’m thinking about.’” – Today’s talk is a bit different from Jay’s other talks in many ways, more abstract, but as always it is filled with grace and love and honesty. Jay approaches this talk acknowledging that we are all working with different traumas in our lives that lead us each to learning different lessons, so there is an amount of absurdity in the thought that we should all be on the same page. We don’t have to agree with the other perspective, but the idea is that we get a fuller picture of reality when we come together and learn, even in our disagreements. Jay shares some raw and heartfelt thoughts with us, and lays his own sufferings on the table because there is no hierarchy of pain and suffering – we’re all in this together. And being honest and finding ways to help ourselves also helps others. Helping others is what makes us a church/gathering. Jay reminds us that Revolution Gathering does not take place in the hour that he is giving his talk, but in the 6 days and 23 hours in-between talks. Suffering and hardships make us into people we never thought we could be – but if you’re listening to this talk and reading this description then you’ve already survived everything so far! Keep going. There isn’t always a magical Bible verse to help get us through – but that is why we have each other.This talk was given on December 12, 2021 in Seattle,
