    Silver Linings of Quarantine

    Silver Linings of Quarantine

    We all need a silver lining in the midst of a dark time.  I'm talking about some of my favorites from this COVID-19 pandemic, including: trends in podcasting, prayer, and spiritual awakening... the rise of my own anxiety and what I've learned about my faith...  the increased compassion for the homebound, imprisoned, and minorites. 


    Also, my favorite blooper from the office was talked about on John Krasinski's new YouTube show.  It's time stamped in the link below.

    Sources of Anxiety w/ Steve Cuss

    Sources of Anxiety w/ Steve Cuss

    Steve Cuss joins us with an extremely helpful perspective and practical insights into identifying some of the sources of our anxiety.  Because they often come in similar patterns, it gives us the power to recognize them and work through them, especially in light of the Gospel.  Steve is a pastor of a church near Denver Colorado, and has a book on leadership I highly recommend.

    Signs of Anxiety w/ Dr. Greg Mitchell

    Signs of Anxiety w/ Dr. Greg Mitchell

    Anxiety has very obvious and predictable patterns.  Once you understand them, you'll be able to more easily recognize when anxiety is driving your life or the culture around you.  Dr. Greg Mitchell is one of my closest friends and mentors and now you get to benefit from his amazing wisdom.  Of all the episodes on my channel... THIS IS A MUST LISTEN.

    An Anxious World Part 2

    An Anxious World Part 2

    Have you ever wondered where anxiety begins?  I take a look through the lens of biblical theology and psychology to trace the idea of anxiety into something we can all relate to.

    An Anxious World

    An Anxious World

    The term anxiety is one that is used so widely and broadly it can almost become a place holder for just about any negative emotion or experience.  It makes an important topic very convoluted and confusing.  I have found incredible insight and wisdom from Family Systems Theory, otherwise known as Bowen Theory, which offers a great perspective on the idea of anxiety and its role in our lives.  Although this is a secular psychological theory, I have found that it articulates some things really well that align with my Christian theology.

A Podcast Worth Your Time

Legend has it that as a college student, college football standout Seth Trimmer once slam dunked on a 4th grade student, just because he could. Also, he might be the only pastor that can give you a hot take on Kendrick Lamar's latest album, immediately followed by his in-depth analysis of the book of Mark. Now, imagine giving this man a microphone, a plethora of interesting guests, and an RSS feed - you now have "Church In The Wild". It may not feature Kanye West, but it's a pretty good time.
