    Living In Babylon -- Interview with Kimberly Deckel

    Living In Babylon -- Interview with Kimberly Deckel

    I am exploring the idea of "Living in Babylon" with an eye toward the thought, "How should we live? What should the inform the American church in this time of spiritual exile?" This episode is an interview with the Rev. Kimberly Deckel. She is soon to be rector of All Souls Church in Phoenix, AZ. She talks about spiritual rhythms in her life and we also pick up the conversation on racial justice.

    Living in Babylon: Finding Spiritual Rhythms

    Living in Babylon: Finding Spiritual Rhythms

    Last year I had a series called "Leaving Babylon." This is a series title still in flux as I try to grasp all that the Lord is doing with the American church. I am back to "Living in Babylon" and now want to focus on what it will take to live as the Body of Christ in a new mindsight. My goal is to walk with joy and prepare us as the Body of Christ for what is ahead. To do that we need to find those spiritual rhythms in our lives that become the "base note" of our living. That has been the liturgy for me, along with my learning from the historic black church and other ethnic churches. 

    Join me on this powerful journey.

    Author Interview with Traci Rhoades

    Author Interview with Traci Rhoades

    Traci Rhoades is author of the book Not All Who Wander (Spiritually) are Lost. The conversation centered around the topic of the book: learning more about the Church. In a time when we can easily grow bitter toward the Church, Traci has found a journey of joy. 

    You can find Traci at her website. Also on Twitter and Facebook.

    Another book she references is Putting Joy into Practice by Phoebe Mikhail. 

    You can find me at my blog. 

    This was a life-giving episode I hope you find as enriching as I felt when it was over.

    Leaving Babylon Part 5: The Time to Lament

    Leaving Babylon Part 5: The Time to Lament

    We have been bound up in "Christendom" or "culturalized Christianity." It is time to leave it. The Spirit is giving the invitation to move to a new place, NOT go back. In this time of disorientation, we need to learn to lament.

    Leaving Babylon Part 4: TO BABYLON YOU SHALL GO

    Leaving Babylon Part 4: TO BABYLON YOU SHALL GO

    We are going through another election season. "Living in Babylon" is a series that was birthed in the 2016 election cycle and I've had it stirring in my heart since that time. With the national election just under 40 days out, I need to say some things from Jeremiah 27-29. Buckle up.

    Leaving Babylon Part 3

    Leaving Babylon Part 3

    I am back exploring some thoughts on "leaving the Babylon of our own making." This episode looks at some of the things that have become idols in the American Church and how God is dealing with the Church to remove these idols.
