So many significant issues are found at the intersection of theology and missions, yet people often speak about one to the neglect of the other. We ask questions about contextualization, honor and shame, biblical interpretation, and the church's mission in the world. Hosted by Jackson Wu, Werner Mischke, and Carrie Vaughn, discussions and interviews seek answers that are biblically faithful and culturally meaningful.

    Distinguishing Shame and Guilt (S1, E 16)

    Distinguishing Shame and Guilt (S1, E 16)

    In this season finale, we distinguish shame from guilt. The two concepts are often misunderstood. People in the church tend to assume the Bible emphasizes guilt over shame. Along the way, we miss their significance in Scripture and the ways they impact our lives.

    Dr. Jamie Sanchez studied how various cultural markers are both shunned and engaged by the church. Is this an American or a Christian identity marker? This question should be central to us before we come up with any intercultural strategy.

Meets a need, engaging, relevant

I am one of the hosts of this podcast. So, of course, I am giving it five stars. Here’s why I am enthused about “Doing Theology, Thinking Mission”: 1) It meets a huge need. You will hear compelling explorations of how Christian theology and the church’s mission relate to each other; that’s pretty special in the world of podcasts. We cover contextualization, honor and shame, biblical interpretation, and the church's mission in the world. 2) It’s engaging. Jackson Wu, Carrie Vaughn and I genuinely enjoy conversing together about the issues we cover and the stories we tell. I’m pretty sure our joy and passion leaks through. 3) It’s relevant. It is no small challenge to make the Bible’s story and truths, centered in the life of Jesus Christ, relevant to our broken world. It is an endless quest with lots of discoveries along the way. I hope that this podcast will be a help for many on that same quest.
