This podcast is designed around the reality that many of our churches are shrinking because we haven’t created a place where everyone can belong. So if you’re seeing that reality in your own church, or you’ve experienced that and left the church, this podcast is for you.

    Summary: The prophecy of Isaiah 61 is being fulfilled right now. We are in the midst of an apocalypse - a great unveiling of the way things really are. And we who once were blind can no longer live as if we do not see. Prophets are crying out in our streets daily, #letmelive #Icantbreathe #BlackLivesMatter and freedom is on the horizon. Will the church partner with God to usher in release for the captives? Will the church embody Good News for the oppressed? How will the history books tell the story of the church in this era?

    Summary: What does faith look like in the midst of chaos and loss? The book of Psalms is full of praise and lament, encouragement and conviction. In this episode, we turn to Psalm 46 for a word of encouragement. Be still and know that God is God, and we are not. This is part 1, and part 2 is coming..

    Summary: How do we fix the massive problems in our world? Spoiler alert: wars, wealth, and power are not the solution. But there is hope, and it’s simpler than we might think. Today we’re focusing on the second half of Psalm 46, with the war-God who destroys weapons and ends all wars.

    PreacHer: Claire Davidson Frederick
    Summary: Adapted from a previously preached homily on the Book of Ruth, this sermon takes listeners along the journey of two widows: Naomi (from Bethlehem in Judah) and Ruth (a foreigner from Moab). This tragic and ultimately hope-filled story gives Bible-believing people permission to both lament our misfortune and believe that God may yet have something more in store for us. The good news Frederick expounds is that God often works through the marginalized, the scandalized, and the traumatized to bring about God's ultimate redemptive purposes. God even works through an outsider like Ruth to facilitate the redemption of those inside the covenant community.
