Misfits, Refugees, and All Saints: Chatting with Michael Spurlock
By Nancy Carmichael
So what do you get when you cross an Episcopal Pastor, a church on the verge of closing its doors, and a bunch of refugees from halfway around the world?
You get the just-about-to-be-released movie All Saints, based on the true story referenced above, that’s what.
I had a chance to talk about the movie as well as a number of other fascinating topics, including how many life forms exist in the NY subway system, and the price of a hot dog cart in Central Park, with Reverend Michael Spurlock (but you can call him Michael… he said so). He’s the central character in the story, (played by John Corbett, of Big Fat Greek Wedding fame, I’m just sayin) although he would probably argue that the real Central Character is a little Higher up the chain of command than he… but nonetheless, he’s got a compelling story that you will want to hear, and watch!

And did I mention there’s a book, too? Find out about that here:
Oh, and in case you didn’t know it, you have officially found your way to a special little place I like to call The Isle of Misfits. It’s actually the same place it’s been all along, but now we have an official name for this podcast! And it’s a fitting name, because when you think about it, there’s a little bit of weirdo in all of us. Ok, maybe not you, but the rest of us, trust me. We’re all struggling in one way or another to find our place in this world that all too often demands conformity, and that leaves a lot of us feeling like, well, misfits. Here on the Island, however, we ALL fit in, because we all have a little somethin somethin to share, in spite of, or maybe even because of our weirdness. Something that only you can offer, that someone else needs.
So welcome, welcome to the Isle, my Logospost friend. Bring your Misfit friends along. They are most welcome, too!
