Contending for a better world
Whether it’s Corey just sharing from his own knowledge and experiences or him inviting in other amazing BIPOC to share their journeys and knowledge ... each episode has something to learn, something to chew on, and something to build that next step forward in contending for a better world. Grateful to be able to learn from him and them!
Deep and full of heart
Such great guests, always taking away new insights. Love the relaxed interview style, always letting there be room for the guests to flesh out their thoughts. Can tell the host cares about people. Give it a try!
I cannot get enough of this podcast. I really enjoy listening to Corey’s thoughts and perspectives. I would give it 5 stars, but I believe Corey could continue developing his thoughts further and providing supporting research or doctrine to his beliefs, which is why I enjoy the podcasts with guests a little more. I disagree with most of the conclusions Corey lands on, but this podcast helps me strengthen my convictions.
If I could summarize how I feel when I listen to this podcast, it would be as if I’m reading Psalm 73 out loud. Chronologically, this is the beginning of King David’s rule over Israel and the injusticies were everywhere. Yet those who believed in God don’t turn silent or a blind eye to injustices, they cling to the truth that they know which is God’s law and live it out despite how difficult that may be, teaching it to others, to their children, and future generations because it is eternal. It is not merely human existence first, then everything else. Existence is because of God, therefore a human first construct leads us to believe remaining pure at heart nothing more than vanity.
