The Empathy List is a free newsletter is for all those looking to grow in empathy & curiosity, written by progressive evangelical Christian author, Liz Charlotte Grant (or whatever we’re called now if we’re anti-Trump)…
*The Empathy List received a nomination for best independent email publication at the 2022 Webby Awards!*
On two Wednesdays a month, I send an essay to grow your empathy + every Friday, I send a list of Curious Reads (plus discussion for paid subscribers).
Read the Empathy List for…
+A Christian Left take on the headlines,
+Un-put-downable long-form stories,
+A chance to learn something new, and
+A kind + funny narrator, who reminds her readers (and herself) to take deep breaths.
Who is Liz Charlotte Grant?
I’m a religious writer with a big heart & insatiable curiosity.
I’m an award-winning writer with a creative writing degree from the Harvard of Christian schools (…or so the admissions office tells me SHRUG). My essays have appeared in the Huffington Post, Hippocampus Magazine, Christianity Today, and the Christian Century and many other places. I was an editor at the Curator Magazine.
I worked as a certified birth doula (CD(DONA)) for a couple of years, during which time I had the chance to witness 21 women become mothers to their squishy-faced newborns. The experience deepened my capacity for patience and empathy for my fellow humans, both like and unlike me, as well as encouraging my scientific curiosity.
I’m also progressive Christian who believes in the power of story. I see beauty in every corner of the universe, from the bottom of the Mariana trench to galaxies we cannot even see in our puny retinas to the faces of our next-door neighbors.
I’m a fanatic for midcentury furniture, heirloom tomatoes, and BBC mystery TV. I live near Denver, Colorado, USA, with my two elementary-schoolers and my artist husband.
