    ETC S3E02: Catch up round up!

    Join Michael, Chad, and Doug as they catch up after a summer apart and dive into meaningful conversation.
    In this episode, they swap stories from their family adventures road tripping and camping across the U.S. and visiting national parks. The friends then reflect on their faith backgrounds in the Restoration Movement and discuss what it means to identify with this Christian tradition. How do we pray for unity? How do we navigate institutions and draw boundaries? What are our hopes for revival? The conversation wrestles with tensions but circles back to the desire for connection.

Great podcast!!

I absolutely love this podcast! I would love to hear you guys talk about Christian Nationalism. What is it? What should our response be to it? Thanks for putting out great content!

A Refreshing Perspective

Every Thought Captive presents a Biblically-based, Christian perspective on cultural issues, including politics, that is refreshingly distinct from the polarized mainstream rhetoric. The dialogue is loaded with both empathetic insight and principled truth while avoiding the unhelpful divisiveness of so many critics. This podcast is truly a rare gem among cultural commentaries.
