Rusty Gates and I had some of the most meaningful experiences of our lives years ago in a small community in Denver, Colorado. In episode 31 we reflect on that season of our lives, what it taught us about community, and what we’ve learned since.

Our social interactions have been pared down to the bare minimum…  But we are social creatures.  We crave community.  But Community?….  What does that even look like in our circumstances?  I’m at a loss.  But there is something special stirring in all of us – a deep longing to be together again.

Episode 29 is the primer to a full blown “Season 1” of the podcast, bearing the series title Craving Communit...

Suddenly we've become a culture in Quarantine! The way we interact has changed…. rapidly!

Amy Powell and I sat down to chat about it. We talk about everything from the interesting choices in movies that are trending right now, to what we’ve learned by observing a variety of reactions to the news of this pandemic. It’s a light hearted observational conversation in the middle of these crazy times we find ourselves in. Enjoy.

Kent Dobson, my guest on episode 25, has a love/hate relationship with the Christian Bible. He was raised in the evangelical tradition, studied and became a biblical scholar, and even held the role of teaching pastor at a mega-church in Michigan. He ventured away from ----more----the tradition but has never been able to shake it completely. In his personal life he keeps returning to the stories of the Bible in some shape or...

Join me on episode 24 and together we'll explore what it means to be "unshackled." Immature religion usually offers one answer to this question.... and if my past experience is any indicator that answer is: 'being unshackled' is being close enough to God that you're essentially removed from the human condition. But what if it's simpler and much more primal than that? What if it's merely a matter of being FULLY present to the...
