We constantly, can't help it it seems, point fingers at everyone else...latching onto what we can use to throw stones at one another. David E. Fitch and I discuss what the church could look like if we didn't.
Few things, very few, are more important than raising the next generation. I sat down with Cindy to discuss how to approach this.
The Bible is something special, isn't it? I mean what other text have stood the tests of time as it has? But how do we know what we are reading is the correct way to be read? How can we trust translations and what the heck is a "Biblical Narrative"? Professor Robert Alter and I discuss...
Last we we only just started. This week we begin to wrap this thought up. Though, as with any large topic, there really isn't ever a proper ending.
t's time we talk about Hell...
I'm honored Brandon would trust me with his words with these next two posts.
What in the world does it even mean to wonder what God's will, God's purpose or even our purpose is in our life. Let's discuss
The Enneagram is a monster topic but I don't think it has to be. Ultimately, it boils down to better knowing yourself and then taking that further to how to better love one another. Clare Loughrige and I discuss how finding Harmony can do just that with a tool like the Enneagram
Politics and religion are inescapable in the circles we all run in but how do we discuss it? How do we make space for it? I welcome Brad back on the show to discuss. It has been too long!
Brandon and I sit down to discuss what it looks like to be honest with our doubts. If we can come to terms what does that mean for changing the way that we do church?
Jared and I discuss truth, the Eagles, Old Testament and how we often make an idol of so many things that fall short of anything worthy of worship.
Adam and I discuss the Bible through a lens of overarching narrative. How does stripping away the "format" we so often think of Scripture change the way we read it?
This world, if we let it, will strip us of grace. It will distort things that are holy and this is wrong. Join Darren and I as we discuss reclaiming grace and love.
Karl and I sit down to discuss how fatherhood changes the way we view and think about God.
Few faiths and practices call to me more than that of Buddhism. I think you'll find this conversation between myself and Paul entirely engaging.
I sit down and chat about immigration in our country and how possibly our "Biblical" view of "other" may need to shift; with Karen Gonzalez.
I sit down for Part 2 of our Patron conversations. Jim and I discuss so much here. Cultural bias, the future of the church and faith. How can we make room for others and a willingness to let go of certainty.
Race. Inclusion. Fear. Grace. Why do we struggle to talk about any and/or all of these? Could it be that we just don't know how? This week I sit down with Rev. Dr. Serene Jones in a deeply personal conversation about all of the above and the beautiful idea that Original Grace is entirely more important that Original Sin.
It's been too long, but it is time to talk about what happens when we die, again. It's time to wonder what are all the options for the afterlife, heaven and hell.
This week I sit down with Rafael Polendo to discuss what it looks like to live and do things in life differently as a Christian; and what happens when we step out of comfort zones and love and engage with our family and community differently. Ultimately, what happens when we unmuzzle our faith?
I sit down with the gracious Barbara Brown Taylor to char about her latest book, Holy Envy. This convo centers around faith, honesty, and a willingness to see the best in others.
I sit down with Steve, via the internet, to discuss what honesty in faith looks like. How do we make room for doubts and fears? How do we see this mirrored in Scripture and in the life of Jesus?
I get it, I do, we live in a world that is geared for some to start halfway down the track in the race to finish this mile. I'm a guy, happily born down the track, but this doesn't mean it is the correct view does it? So what do we do?
We have a gun problem here in America; but more importantly we have a heart problem. What could it look like for us if we possibly dealt with the trauma and pain they caused? When we realize we've idolized them and begin again, telling a new story of Jesus.
We all are longing and, if we are honest, looking for true touch. Not a sexual one, not a "compassionate one", but one that holds us at the core of who we were created to always be. How do we embrace this though? Luigi Gioia and I discuss.
James and I sat down to discuss what happens when truth is used as a weapon and how we can possibly better deal with truth. Is it absolute? Is it not? Does it matter?
Do you ever find yourself reading the Bible and coming away going..."wait! what does this mean?"? Me too; which is why I'm so happy to release this weeks conversation with Pete Enns on How The Bible Actually Works*...
