    Who's Going To Hell? (Episode 14)

    Who's Going To Hell? (Episode 14)

    Brian Zahnd joins us to discuss hell, hades, sheol, and the eternal fires that burn hot... for them? for you?
    Maybe. 
    Maybe not.
    Listen as Brian talks about how the early church preached salvation, how his new book "Sinners In The Hands Of A Loving God" is stirring up this conversation and what (he thinks) Jesus meant when He talks about hell.
    Listen to understand.
    Listen to engage.
    Don't listen to judge.

    Can We Talk About It Now? (Episode 13)

    Can We Talk About It Now? (Episode 13)

    A powerful interview with Anna Jane Joyner. She gives us scientific, political and theological reasons to at least talk about climate change. Then, we chat about her desire to share a different narrative than that of her father, evangelical/charismatic leader, Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministries. A few tips on staying in relationship even when you seem to be in total contradiction to those you love most.
    Listen to understand. Listen to learn. Turn it off when you judge.

    Deport Them All? (Episode 12)

    Deport Them All? (Episode 12)

    A father who is facing deportation. A mother who is having to cover for two. A DACA recipient who fears for his future. And two sons who feel the pain. This is the story of the Chicas family. And it is a necessary reminder of how a political conversation can affect actual human lives. Listen to this interview which was recorded inside the sanctuary where the father lives in.

    Will Richard Rohr Pick Up The Phone? (Episode 11)

    Will Richard Rohr Pick Up The Phone? (Episode 11)

    So yeah. I got Richard Rohr's number through a friend and I called him. We talked about non-dualism, staying sane in the midst of insanity and how to not be so angry (and partisan, and selective).

    We also talked about millennials, shared some charismatic testimonies (pentecostal style) and decided to stay in touch. Because you know... Richard Rohr is cool like that.

    Sorry for the terrible audio. Hope you enjoy.

    What's Your Name? (Episode 10)

    This week we interviewed pastor and award winning peace activist, Jarrod McKenna. We talked about learning non-violence, transforming hospitality,  and then we went on a "know-yourself-know-your-story" rant that helped me massively. Hope it helps you too.
