Meet Brother Oran - Producer & Host of Find the Good News podcast!

"I have been on a twenty-five-year spiritual expedition inside myself..."

-Brother Oran Parker, producer & host of Find the Good News podcast

Brother Oran Parker is the producer and host of the podcast Find the Good News, a show focused on good people doing good works wherever he can find them. Oran visits with artists, educators, authors, civic and spiritual leaders, and everyday citizens that use their time, resources, and talents to bring hope and happiness to their corners of the world.
Oran has worked in the creative communications field for over two decades. During that time, he has insisted creativity is an actual divine force—not dissimilar from love—that can clearly be seen in the processes around us. He feels that these forces beckon us to consciously partake in the excellent work of bringing even more life, goodwill, mercy, and compassion into the world.

Taking his own advice, Brother Oran decided to put his natural creative energy to work in the form of the Find the Good News podcast. Find the Good News is a creative work he hopes will encourage others to refine the signals they invite into their lives. Through the podcast, he aspires to help others connect with new allies, heal painful wounds, fertilize latent spiritual gifts, increase wisdom, understanding, and compassion, as well as encourage others to allow their inborn, natural human good to flourish.


Brother Oran meets with his podcast guests around the "right-round table" inside the Good News studio.

The Find the Good News podcast is produced by Parker Brand Creative Services in Sulphur, Louisiana.


"On August 1st, 1995, a sudden awakening experience changed the course of my life," says Brother Oran. "I had quickly fallen into a type of darkness that was consuming my young mind. It felt like death and nihilism—today I would call it depression. This flash of understanding illuminated everything in an instant—the grim reaper wasn't extinguished—it was my perspective on the nature of life and death that had suddenly changed."

"I have been on a twenty-five-year spiritual expedition inside myself in an attempt to understand what happened that August day," Oran explains. "As a seeker, I enthusiastically consumed religious teachings and assimilated many practices into my own life. I have drenched myself in the works of philosophers, poets, scientists, sages, and aboriginal peoples—this continues today. Like many, I have experienced loss, grace, hardship, and blessings, and on the other side of these I have come to believe awakening and union to divinity is the end state of all beings. I accept this fully. It binds us to each other and to the rest of the created universe, which can be most readily experienced right here on this planet. This is why I adopted the moniker 'Brother.' I am a child of Creation—we all have that lineage—and by my logic that makes me a sibling, a brother to other beings."

"Sometimes, all we need is a friend that is willing to be with us,

to listen, and perhaps offer gentle, experiential guidance while we find our way." 

-Brother Oran Parker, producer & host of Find the Good News podcast

As a licensed ecumenical minister, Oran practices universal spiritual accompaniment—offering a brother's ear to fellow seekers—as well as baptism, blessing, and union ceremonies. He also officiates weddings and funerals. "Sometimes, all we need is a friend that is willing to be with us, to listen, and perhaps offer gentle, experiential guidance while we find our way," says Oran. "I've offered that kind of spiritual friendship in an unofficial capacity for a very long time. As a licensed minister, I feel I can elevate the intention and the intensity of my relationships with others. I want to share the same gifts that were given to me on that August day."

"I want to share the same gifts that were given to me...

-Brother Oran Parker, producer & host of Find the Good News podcast

In his role as the owner and creative director of Parker Brand Creative Services—a boutique creative studio he operates with his wife in Southwest Louisiana—he continues to seek a healthy, sacred fusion between his professional skillset and spiritual gifts. The Find the Good News podcast is one of those marriages between the two, and it is Brother Oran's attempt at doing a good work. “There’s a lot of news in the world,” says Oran. “I’m going to find the good."

    I would love to sit down with you to talk about teaching In our system now. Maybe we can talk Bethany into it also. �
