Zoweh's Exploring More Podcast is an invitation to conversations committed to sharing our discoveries of the wild and wonderful Kingdom of God… how it works, who we are in it, and the Love and Life that is constantly pursuing us. The Kingdom of God isn’t easy nor is everything in our story good—there are predators and parasites in the spiritual realm, another kingdom, the kingdom of darkness that exists and violently opposes our discovering and becoming more.

Exploring More is hosted by Michael Thompson, produced by Zoweh, and recorded in Durham, NC.

    Debunking Prayer - Part 1

    Debunking Prayer - Part 1

    Michael Thompson, SJ Jennings, and Greg Sailors delve into debunking prayer. Many words have been associated with prayer - obligation, formality, repetitive, holy... We remember simplistic prayers from our childhood such as "Now I lay me down to sleep." What is the right way to pray anyway? Is it a formula? In this discuss the team suggests, "Our perception of God determines our conversation with Him."

    The Elder Sage Initiative - Part 3

    Michael Thompson, SJ Jennings, Jim Chenet, and Gary Barkalow
    What is it to walk in one's glory in the Sage Stage?
    Our calling is the weightiness, beauty, splendor of God. It increases as one gets older. When the exterior world and assignments change, it feels like a loss of freedom and purpose, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Join the team as they discuss examples of a man's transition from running while wielding a sword in the Warrior/King Stage to walking with a staff in the Elder Sage Stage.

    The Elder Sage Initiative - Part 2

    Michael Thompson, SJ Jennings, Jim Chenet, and Gary Barkalow continue the discussion about the Elder Sage Initiative. They reveal the potential woundings that happen in this stage; one of the most notable being retirement. Retirement can lead to a feeling of not being wanted or needed and perhaps even isolation. The men discuss that the glory of God in one’s life is not associated with roles such as work or assignments. They suggest that the Elder Sage stage is an amazing time to experience a greater freedom in exploring one’s calling and the glory of God in one’s life.

Must Listen

This is a podcast that all Christians (especially men) should listen to and keep up with once you have caught up. The teaching, or I should say, the conversation is biblically solid. And if you go back through the years, there is so much talked about on so many different subjects.
I love that they don’t force it into one hour long podcasts, but take several, if several are required.
