Pray Away: A Reflection - With Chad & Steve

Pray Away: A Reflection - With Chad & Steve

October 6, 2021

This week my friends Chad & Steve join me to discuss and reflect on the Netflix film "Pray Away". This is a film by Ryan Murphy that engages Ex-leaders and a survivor of the so-called "conversion therapy" movement as they speak out about its harm to the LGBTQ+ community and its devastating persistence.

The episode was the idea of my friend Chad, a survivor of "conversion therapy". Chad offered us new insights and perspectives into the film and the lives of those directly affected by "conversion therapy". Enjoy.

Radical Wholeness and the Ordinary Grace of Being - With Philip Shepherd

Radical Wholeness and the Ordinary Grace of Being - With Philip Shepherd

September 22, 2021

There are qualities we all yearn to experience in our lives - peace, simplicity, grace, connection, clarity. Yet these qualities evade us, because each of them arises from an experience of wholeness, and we live in a culture that enforces divisions within each of us.

This week, Philip Shepherd joins me in conversation to discuss the countless ways in which we are persuaded to separate from the body and live in the head. Disconnected from the body's intelligence, we also disconnect from the wholeness of the present. This schism within us is the primary source of stress not just in our personal lives, but for the systems of the planet.

I really enjoyed this conversation and am excited to share it with you all. Enjoy!

A More Christlike Word - With Brad Jersak

A More Christlike Word - With Brad Jersak

August 18, 2021

The Scriptures are an essential aspect of the Christian faith. But often they are equated with the living Word Himself (Jesus), even elevating them above the One to whom they point. This has distorted their central message—and fractured our view of God. Tragically, this has caused multitudes of people unnecessary doubt, confusion, and pain in their encounters with the Scriptures. 

Many of us understand God as being truly loving and good. But what do we do with depictions of God in Scripture as wrathful, violent, and genocidal. These “toxic texts” have caused some to set aside their Bibles and have led others to completely reject their faith.

Author and theologian Bradley Jersak has wrestled deeply with such passages over many years. He has experienced the same questions, doubt, and pain. In A More Christlike Word, he offers a clarifying and freeing path forward. Brad calls this path the “Emmaus Way” because it demonstrates how Jesus regarded all Scripture as fulfilled in himself, the final Word of God who reveals the true nature of the Father. Enjou!

This week, Dr. Thomas Jay Oord returns to the podcast for the fourth time. We had an awesome conversation focused around Tom's latest book "Open and Relational Theology: An Introduction to Life-Changing Ideas".

Open and Relational Theology has been a steady theme on the show, however, we never did a proper episode just on Open and Relational Theology. So this week, Tom and I sat down for an introductory, and sometimes nerdy, conversation that we hope you find helpful. Enjoy!
