    Gospel Identity (Part 2)

    Gospel Identity (Part 2)

    Picking up where we left off last week, Bryce and Brad continue to explore the way a gospel identity differs from both the modern and traditional approaches to identity formation. In Part 1 we talked about what a gospel identity is, and began exploring what makes it unique. In this episode we continue with 2 more reasons it's unique, and then talk about how a gospel identity grows.

    Gospel Identity (Part 1)

    Gospel Identity (Part 1)

    This season on Everything Just Changed we're exploring the issue of identity and asking "how do we received rather than achieve our identity?" Last we we looked at the 2 common ways humans throughout history have through about identity--the traditional and modern approaches--in which our dignity, value and worth must be achieved through what we do. Today we'll look at he biblical alternative--receiving our identity from God himself.

    Deconstruction Roundtable

    Deconstruction Roundtable

    After an unexpectedly lively (some might even say “spicy”) twitter discussion on the topic of ‘Deconstruction,’ Brad invited a few of the most irenic and pastoral participants to a roundtable discussion exploring the roots, diversity, and common denominators among what feels like an evolution or revival connected to the ‘Skepticism’ of yesteryear. Listen in as they explore the different expressions of deconstruction, validate frustration with evangelicalism, the (ironic) Western/Individualist roots, and most importantly: ways to respond pastorally with truth and love.



    Guests on this special bonus episode include Ian Harber, Michael Agapito, and Brookes Jones.

    How Did We Get Here?

    How Did We Get Here?

    As we ask the question "How do we receive, rather than achieve, our identity?" in this season, we're digging into the roots of identity formation. What does it mean to be a self? Where do we source our security and significance? Modern people instinctively look within themselves to answer these questions...but is this the only way to do it? Is it the best way?

    Hate Pandemic Life? Guess What, It's Our Future...

    We're back with season 3 of Everything Just Changed! As we help you navigate faithfulness to Jesus in a post-Christian and post-pandemic world, we are dedicating season 3 to answering the question "how do we receive, rather than achieve, our identity?" In episode 1 of this season, Brad and Bryce give some context to this question by exploring what has, and more importantly going forward, what hasn't changed, since the Covid 19 pandemic interrupted our lives a year ago.

    Replay: Chris Bruno on Emotional Health for Tired Leaders

    As we get ready to release season 3 of Everything Just Changed, we're bringing you a couple of our earliest and most popular episodes. On this episode of Everything Just Changed, we sit down with Christian counselor Chris Bruno to discuss the way the global pandemic is affecting our mental and emotional health. How can those of us in leadership roles be attentive to our own well-being in this time when everything has shifted? How do we help those we lead and interact with to grow in their awareness of the stresses their bearing up under as well? And why is this pandemic making us all so tired? Chris is a Licensed Professional Counselor, the founder of Restoration Counseling, and you can connect with him at careduringcorona.com. His book The Man Maker Project is available on Amazon.com and he’s also the host of The Walking With Podcast. If you'd like to check out the underground city in Cappadocia that Chris mentioned, you can see it here.

Thoughtful AND Relevant

Bryce and Brad give thoughtful commentary on our current cultural situation — about how we got here and what we can do about it. They tell stories well, give excellent background information, play host to some terrific guests, and help put words to the general feeling that “something’s not right here” that I know many of us share right now. Fortunately they don’t leave us just with a deeper understanding of what’s wrong though, they point to the hope for resolution.

Striking the right tone!

Biblically guided, intellectually measured, emotionally attached and culturally contextualized. Well done gentleman!
