• #152 - A New Covenant Lens (Part 1)

    In this week's episode I am beginning a discussion series on the New Covenant. My goal is to create dialogue and maybe clear up some confusion about what it really means to live under the New Covenant. The New Covenant is better than the Law, like at literally everything, and yet I find that many in the body of Christ are reluctant to let go of their Old Covenant paradigms for fear that the New Covenant is not strong enough to keep them from sinning. The New Covenant did what the Old never could... it defeated sin once and for all. Join me in this discussion as we unpack the better promises of the New Covenant and discover perhaps in a greater way how perfect and complete the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ really is.

  • #150 - Josh Wypij: Loving People into God's Family (Also Donuts, Gambling, and More)

    Josh Wypij is a pastor and a recurring guest and friend of the podcast. In this episode we have a raw and real conversation about about cultural trends... more specifically, how God's people haven't done an epic job of responding to the brokenness of people IN LOVE. Josh asked an important question about midway through the discussion: HOW should we respond? This is a really important conversation to me personally because I believe that, as the people of God, we are here on the earth to represent Him well (re-present Him) to people. Every person on this planet... even the ones you don't like... is an image-bearer of God. Just like you. Of course the conversation kind of fell apart at the end and turned into a bunch of nonsense, but hopefully it's at least mildly entertaining. Thank you so much for showing your support for this podcast. Bless you as you listen.

  • #149 - Deconstruction with Brit Eaton

    Brit Eaton is back on the podcast to discuss Deconstruction and the modern deconstruction movement within the Christian Church. We believe that it is important to create a safe atmosphere within our churches and communities where people feel empowered to ask questions... especially the difficult ones. Our conversations centered around healthy ways to unpack and examine your beliefs and WHY you believe what you believe as well as destructive ways to deconstruct. As Brit pointed out, "Deconstruction without reconstruction is just destruction" and if you feel that you have a need to dig deeper into unpacking your beliefs, jump in... but keep your eyes fully fixed on Jesus in the process.

    Brit Eaton is an author, coach, content strategist, all-around pursuer of the Kingdom of God, advocate for women in ministry, and so much more. She shares from a place of vulnerability and intimacy with God. Check out www.briteaton.com for more of her resources.
