    The New Age & The Enneagram | Marcia Montenegro | Ep. 112

    The New Age & The Enneagram | Marcia Montenegro | Ep. 112

    Today I'm airing the second part of my conversation with Marcia Montenegro. We're diving headfirst into the New Age and tackling some big topics like naturopathy, mindfulness, the enneagram. 
    Marcia explains the origins of these ideas, concepts and the enneagram itself, which may surprise you. To be fair, I have long loved the enneagram and how it felt like it explained me so accurately, helped me understand more about myself and others, but as I've learned more about its origins, I've taken a more critical approach to it.
    But Marcia's biggest beef isn't that you identify as a "three" or an "achiever" but that the enneagram is teaching people to value experience over truth, a foundational teaching of the new age.
    While I think there's plenty of room for believers to disagree on whether the enneagram can be "redeemed" (which tends to be the point of argumentation), it's important for us to take a look at the origins of what we engage with so we can rightly understand how we interact with them today.

    Brenna and her family have lived in China for 18 months and just experienced the spread of COVID-19. While they are not in  Wuhan in Hubei province, where the main outbreak was, it has still greatly impacted their lives.

    Truth & Grace in Relationships | Sarah Guild | Ep. 109

    Truth & Grace in Relationships | Sarah Guild | Ep. 109

    The cultural moment we are in tells us grace and truth do not exist together. The narrative looks something like - grace means wholesale acceptance of all that someone chooses to do and the rejection of absolute truth - ie: they can do NO wrong. On the flip side, if you have the truth, you must preach it and take no prisoners.
    But an examination of scripture and God's heart for his children shows that is not how we are to understand these two. They are inextricably linked and meant to be applied together, not separately, in the life of believers. 
    Sarah and I discuss how a right understanding of grace and truth frees us to engage honestly and lovingly, even - and perhaps especially - in challenging relationships.

    Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment | Hannah Anderson | Ep. 108

    Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment | Hannah Anderson | Ep. 108

    It's a wild time to be alive. We have access to more ideas, more content, more leaders, more voices, more information than anyone in history has ever had access to. And that means that we’re going to have to have wisdom to know what to listen to, which direction to go, what to take in, what to leave behind, how to discern what is really influencing us when we post, how to just clarify our own motives and how to be led by the Holy Spirit and not just be swept along by this torrent of information. 
    That means we need to have discernment. But discernment is more than simply avoiding bad things; discernment actually frees you to navigate the world with confidence and joy by teaching you how to recognize and choose good things. When you learn discernment and develop a taste for all that’s good, you will encounter God in remarkable new ways.
    Join me and Hannah for this fascinating conversation.

    Seeking Approval | Donna Harris | Ep. 107

    Seeking Approval | Donna Harris | Ep. 107

    Approval is something we all long for. We long to be found as enough, as acceptable, as good. In fact, it's not whether we will seek approval or not but where we will seek it.
    When we look for it in the wrong place, the approval we find will never satiate our desire for acceptance. But when we realize nd truly believe that our drive to find approval is meant to be met and satisfied in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, our endless search for the approval of man can end. We can see that Jesus fulfills every desire we have for approval by doing what we were powerless to do. 
    Donna and I talk through some of the ways we wrongly seek approval and how we see in scripture that God is the only One who can offer sound and true approval of us.
