A place to connect with Jesus beyond the doors of the church....
Sometimes in life we are called to let go of structures and forms that have been part of our lives up until this point. Like a lobster that leaves a shell that has become too constrictive. It's risky and vulnerable to take this journey, but you know you must. Maybe the church, as you have experienced it, is one of those forms or structures that you have had to leave. You have questions that are not safe to ask. You have found the community too conforming and unable to cope with differences of opinion or identity. Maybe you have had to hide your true self. Or struggled with how church related to the outside world. It might be that you have been wounded or violated by those in leadership. At Dchurched we want to provide a safe context to keep doing life with Jesus outside the church walls.

    Don't Be a Religious Jerk!

    Don't Be a Religious Jerk!

    We are called to love others as we love ourselves. This requires an increasing apprehension of God's love for us. So many religious types end up being shrill and causing many to walk away from faith because of this failure to communicate love.  Christians can behave like jerks.  Why?  For a number or reasons.
    In this episode, Jools explores ways to overcome the tendency to force our will on others.  Instead he offers ways to overcome the self defeating scripts in all our heads.

    I have a problem with Christians: Their Certainty!

    I have a problem with Christians: Their Certainty!

    Being certain of your faith is surely a given, isn't it?  But what happens when our certainty creates a way of faith that is anything but loving?
    In this episode Jools discusses the concept that our certainty is actually very often distorted even without us noticing.  And the results are not pretty.
