My name is Dustin Kensrue and I’ve always been fascinated by the REALLY BIG questions. I’ve spent my life as a songwriter (in Thrice and on my own) wrestling through those big questions, but now I’m starting a new phase of that exploration. I’d love for you to join me on the Carry The Fire podcast, where we dig deep into those big questions through the lens of the good, the true, and the beautiful as we speak with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, beliefs, and professions; together we will all glimpse the world anew through their unique perspectives. Carry the fire with us today!

    Today on the pod we are joined by Andy Siara. Andy is a screenwriter whose first movie Palm Springs just came out this year on HULU. It stars Andy Samberg and it is fantastic.

    In our conversation we discuss the relationship of meaning to mortality, we talk about the leaps of faith that are life and love, and Andy shares how Jurassic Park changed his life as a child and why there are dinosaurs in his new movie. Let’s dive in, but first SPOILER ALERT, before listening to this conversation you really have to stop and go watch the movie on HULU. Ok, fair warning, now let’s dive in.

The Good, the True, and the Beautiful

You’re the best Dustin! Thanks for opening us up to more wonder in the world.

Mt.6:24 ,

Good interview choices!

More people & podcasts are talking these days about the things Jesus taught (in the 4 gospels), but there are a few of his teachings that almost never get serious coverage. Several references (EXCLUDING the “rich young ruler”) are made in Luke about selling all of one’s possessions & giving to the poor and then this teaching is shown to be taken seriously by the time we get to the book of Acts (end of chapters 2 & 4).

Another powerful & often neglected paradigm-changing (IF taken at face value) teaching of Jesus is found in Mt. 6:24; Lk. 16:13-14). This has been called the “Two Masters teaching”, one being God/Love and the other/opposite one being money.

What would Christianity look like, both inside its confines and to the world at large, if these teachings were given much more serious consideration and application?

Take a leap of faith and dive deep into these teachings! ✌🏼
