Alternating between expert ideas and everyday peoples’ experience, the Re: Podcast tackles topics that need deeper nuance for deeper understanding. The Re: Podcast is brought to you by New Heights Church. A church located in Mission BC focused on being church with Mission in Mind.
On this episode we press into what comes to mind when we, or others, hear words like Gospel, Salvation, or Jesus. And it raises the question: what do we actually believe is "good news?" Our two guests: one, an academic and Pastor, and the other, a songwriter, reflect on how this question has evolved in their own praxis and understanding.
It's funny how the holiday season can seem like both a time that is rich with joy and celebration on one hand, and yet, on the other hand, be a source for real mental unrest. In this episode of the Re: Podcast, our friends Tim and Donna share about their experiences of living life in spaces of challenging mental health, and what they have learned along the way in seeking wellbeing.

Re:calling Pt. 2
On this episode of the Re: Podcast we have two guests from the New Heights Church Community; Jordana Hood and Mike Abercrombie. One a mom of three in the middle of discerning what God might be asking of her life, the other a dad of grown children and nearing retirement; both with unique perspectives and experiences of the different ways that vocation takes form.
Amidst shifting circumstances, reoriented ambitions, and sometimes unexpected changes in direction, many of us notice the majority of our time going towards tasks that seem ordinary or mundane. Even if we are lucky enough to find ourselves working our dream job, there are still dishes to be done, floors to be swept, emails to be sent, and for some, diapers to be changed. Today we're exploring the breadth of what a vocation can speak to. We turn to Gareth Brandt, a professor specializing in spiritual development who has taught and written on the subject of calling, vocation and identity.
Re:engage Pt. 2
On this episode of the Re: Podcast, we have two guests from the New Heights Community; Jordan Coquelle and Marion Larson continue with us in our discussion on the theme of sexuality and the church. As we've opened discussion that is sometimes treated as a taboo topic, we've watched the reaction between people that come from different perspectives, different histories, and different generations, listen and learn together. Our guests share on ways they have shifted how they respond and have given new nuance to some of their foundational beliefs in the area of sexuality.
