As a Boomer I love to talk. Turns out, so does my chatty Millennial co-host. And our favorite way to connect with one another, and hopefully help others connect with each other, is by building conversational bridges. No matter what end of the generational bridge you currently land on, we hope you will join us as we converse with some of our finest “skyscraper” friends who are making inspirational verbal and written differences in our ever-expanding, and ever-connected world.
This is Bridges with Patsy Clairmont and Andrew Greer … Spiritual Connections Through Generational Conversations.
Leigh Cappillino | Fear Not! Permission to Lower Expectations For The Holidays
Whether we are striving to please our families, or make December perfect for everyone on our list, unrealistic expectations can reign supreme during the holidays. Our dear friend, Leigh Cappillino of the platinum-selling group Point of Grace, joins us to continue our conversations about creating space during the Christmas season through the beautiful and rewarding exercise of simplifying. If you don't already, you will love Leigh and the warmth in which she approaches these sometimes tough subjects.
Tasha Layton | Owning All The Feelings at Christmastime
Musical artist Tasha Layton went from contemplating suicide to recording the number one song in the country. But her journey from being on the brink to discovering a calling of purpose and passion wasn't as easy as "1-2-3." Here to encourage us in the long but fruitful path to spiritual and mental wholeness, especially when maneuvering life during the holidays, Tasha gives us insight into her own courage to move forward in life –– and inspiration for those of us who are also struggling this Christmas.
Christmas 2021: Creating Space for the Holidays
We thought 2020 was a hum-dinger, but it turns out 2021 has been just as full of dynamic surprises and scenarios to work with and through! So this holiday season we are taking a few minutes to talk about how to simplify our lives so that we can create the proper space within our homes and hearts for the people and things that truly matter this Christmas.
The Gray Havens | The Ache For Home
The Gray Havens have been making music for the thinking person for nearly a decade, but it wasn't until burn-out from touring plunged them into a deep dive of all-things-C.S. Lewis that the married musical duo of David and Licia Radford began to really mine what it means to search for God –– to grow in faith and express more doubts –– while longing to be home. Conversation with these two is as beautiful as the songs they pen, so take a breather and relax into this conversation with The Gray Havens.
Life With Luci | Remembering Luci Swindoll
As one of the founding members of Women of Faith's groundbreaking "Porch Pals," Luci Swindoll was known to thousands as a gifted storyteller, thoughtful author, and dynamic speaker –– often imbuing the platform with her larger-than-life spirit, adventuresome storytelling and mischievous humor. Creating space to remember a life fully lived, Patsy guides us in celebrating Luci as she shares some of the lessons she learned from her very special friend in this very special episode of Bridges.
Andrew Peterson | Trees! All Things New!
This tender episode of Bridges is about the the nature of us, and the nature of God, and how the nature of Creation bridges us to each other and to God. We love a paced space of conversation with Andrew Peterson. It sets our minds and steadies our hearts on the assuredness of the redemption that is at work in all of us. More of Andrew's musings on God, the earth, and humankind can be found in his book, The God of the Garden: Thoughts on Creation, Culture, and the Kingdom.
Patsy has been a part of my life since Focus on the Family introduced me to her many years ago. I purchased the cassette tape of “God uses Cracked Pots” and I remember listening to that tape throughout my high school and college days. Since then, I have purchase the electronic version and listen often via iTunes. It just doesn’t matter, how old you are or how much you think you know, there’s always something new to learn from the lessons Patsy shares as she journeys through life with our Lord.
I am grateful that Andrew and Patsy joined together in this terrific podcast that uses their gifts of humor and insight to reach a new audience to remind us that our Lord is constant, concerned, and has placed each of us here for a purpose. We may think that we are too different to ever come together, but look again. Everyone has a lesson to teach. We just have to listen.
simple, honest, encouraging … essential
Patsy’s twitter account feeds the visual me - helping me reframe how to beautifully begin or end my day. I hesitated on the podcast for some reason. But now that I’m IN DEEP I’ve found her conversations with Andrew and their guests are encouraging me to Taste and See that the Lord is good. The tweets and the podcast are both nourishing and delicious. Thank you.
Always encouraging and relevant
Each time I listen to this podcast, I walk away encouraged. Patsy and Andrew both demonstrate deep insight each episode. I’m alway sad when it’s over!
