Grass Boss ,

Battle Ready is my JAM!!!

So….I am gonna try and keep this short. First off I love this Podcast! One of my Favs. I have read majority of Erwin’s books, seen him speak at Catalyst 2004 (GA), and love listening to all things You Guys 👊🏼

Aaron, for sure love your way of being honest and in that, your heart is seen. You are a true warrior! Also, the way your Dad allows space for others and admires his children’s thoughts….that is an Art. I can go on and on, however; I will leave it here. Keep doing what you are doing 👏 Criticize by Creating 🎨

Fantastic Content and Discussions

I’ve always admired Mosaic’s pursuit of excellence in creative expression— ultimately imitating our Creator in a way that draws people to Him. However, for some reason the audio sounds like a Skype call in terms of audio quality. It’s distracting me to sometimes, which is probably the only negative thing I have to say about the pod. It would just make it that much better if it didn’t sound like a zoom meeting and had more of a studio-quality sound setup. Nonetheless I will always tune in for each episode because it really is that good! All love

Highest wisdom per cubic second content, Best life changing podcast!

Thank you Aaron for sharing your dad’s wisdom and what would have been your private conversations with the world. I remember pastor Erwin’s cancer scare, I freaked out that the world would lose such a guiding light and revolutionary figure. Starting my journey with Jesus at Mosaic in Santa Monica and being pretty much religiously confused all my life, I’ve listened to mosaic online since 2008 after we left LA. I love Battle Ready even more, for its ability to share messages to even atheists and nonbelievers, for Aaron’s genuine emotions, his courage to challenge culturally accepted norms, and those intimate and deep conversations. Aaron is slowly finding his calling in comedy and he always makes me laugh out loud! Thank you, thank you, thank you for starting BR, you’ve changed my life!
