Looking at everything from politics, art and entertainment to issues such as racial reconciliation and the sanctity of human life, we discuss what it looks like to live faithfully on mission—in the world but not of the world.

    Beautiful People Don’t Just Happen

    Beautiful People Don’t Just Happen

    Everyone deals with regret, hurt, and fear, but how do we find the beauty in those experiences? The most compelling gospel teachers have learned to live with such transparency about their hurts and fears which encourages others and honors God through every season of life.  This is the question that Scott Sauls explores in his new book, Beautiful People Don’t Just Happen.

    Work and Worship with Dr. Walter Strickland

    Work and Worship with Dr. Walter Strickland

    In this episode, we chat with Dr. Walter Strickland about his book Every Waking Hour, which addresses the question: When we think of faith and work, how can I use my place of work to glorify God? And how is what I do on a day-to-day basis matter to God as part of his creation? Strickland argues there is even a way to tie our work into an argument for God's better design.

    Cultural Roundup: (Dis)Order in the Court

    Cultural Roundup: (Dis)Order in the Court

    This week we want to address a more timely topic, which is, the recent court-related headlines. Specifically the Roe v. Wade, Depp v. Heard, and Melissa Lucio cases. We ended up asking the broader question: How do we filter through the mess and assess whose voice are we listening to most — the world’s or God’s?

Great Resource from a Great Church

My wife and I have loved listening to this podcast in the morning before work and especially church to set our hearts right before the Lord. Thank you for this. It is encouraging us to try something like this for our own church. God bless. Keep going.
