This is a show where we want to make deep theology easily understood and applied to our real lives. Here we discuss the importance of story, kingdom theology of mission, the table of Jesus, becoming fully human, and more.
We’re Joyce and Jess. And we’re friends, pastors, and speakers. We thought perhaps we could work on this project together and have a little fun. Our goal is to talk about things we have passion for, connect with others about what matters to them, and together impact our world and honour God.

    S2E11 - Demons and Power

    S2E11 - Demons and Power

    In our exploration of power this season we knew we’d have to weigh into the area of spiritual power.  Our biblical mandate is to exercise authority over demonic power, but often we avoid this, dismiss it, or tip into weirdness because of an inordinate emphasis on demons. This episode explores what Jesus said and did in response to demons and how we can best respond in obedience to Christ.

    S2E10 Healing

    S2E10 Healing

    There is no healing without experiencing the power of God. But there’s also no guarantee of healing whenever we ask for it. On this episode we explore healing from a biblical perspective and how “silver bullet” thinking can be challenged theologically. We hope you’re encouraged to keep reaching for healing, while learning to live with the “not yet” realities we all face.

    S2E9 Power and Poverty

    S2E9 Power and Poverty

    Socio economic diversity was to be a signpost of the Kingdom of God at work among God’s people. But in reality we know there are always power dynamics at play when people are experiencing poverty. In this episode we tackle the question of how we upend this power imbalance both inside and outside the Church.

    S2E8 Pandemic Special

    S2E8 Pandemic Special

    As the world is suffering through the Covid-19 pandemic we are realizing we’re in it together, more than the global village has ever experienced before. For many, this suffering is raising profound theological questions about God’s goodness, what faith in a crisis ought to look like, how to best love our neighbour, and much more. Jess and Joyce have a candid conversation you’ll want to listen in on and share with your friends.

    S2E7 Racism & Power

    S2E7 Racism & Power

    Racism is a power issue we avoid talking about if we hold majority status. However, if we are going to address inequity and marginalization we must confront our own biases and systemic issues related to race and power. 

    S2E6 Women in the Church

    S2E6 Women in the Church

    This episode gets into the fray of women in the Church. We explore the theology of male/female  relationships as well as the hotly debated New Testament passages used to preclude women from full participation in the life of the Church.
