    The Power of Non-Judgmental Presence

    The Power of Non-Judgmental Presence

    Welcome to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, Episode 63.
    Today we’re discussing the power of non-judgmental presence. How can co-suffering with hurting people change everything? These notes are the bits and pieces that didn’t make it into my upcoming book with Fortress Press, but because I’m so passionate about this topic, I just couldn’t scrap them. So, I’m sharing them with you today.

Big dose of hope

Steve's been there and done that. He's lived some of the tough stuff. Despite reasons to be cynical, he delivers healthy doses of hope each episode. This podcast is a practical pick-me-up.

Suffering recycled

I wept the first time I listened to Steve’s podcast. If there has ever been an example of suffering recycled, it can surely be found in Steve’s own journey. When something is recycled, the substance is still there, but it has been put to a different and better use. Listen and let the healing balm - the compassion - of Steve’s own experience flow into your wounds. These aren’t pious platitudes, folks. Steve’s words are born from personal anguish, from someone who walked, and continues to walk the walk of the suffering Christian. And I would say that makes him just like Jesus.

Beautiful and raw

Steve has a great balance of truth, rawness, and laughter. It is a pleasure to listen to his podcast. It is one of the highlights of my week. I love his willingness to dig deeper into these hard questions. It is my pleasure to join him on this ride.
