    CareIQ: It's (Not) About You

    CareIQ: It's (Not) About You

    We are all care-givers and care-receivers.  It makes sense that CareIQ would be about the person being cared for, but the truth is, either way, CareIQ starts with you. You don’t need all your $#!+ figured out, but you become more available and useful as you discover more of your tendencies and capacities.  Thanks to Chris Lillehei of Fabric and chaplain at Minneapolis Children’s Hospital for leading this conversation.

    CareIQ: What's It About?

    CareIQ: What's It About?

    Ever cheer up a friend, coworker or family member, walk them through a challenging situation? Sure, but when the typical ups & downs of life become crises we often have no idea what to do. It’s time to raise your CareIQ. This is an area of growth we revisit and practice often and will be exploring again this month with a special eye towards mental health.
    In this episode, Greg Meyer and Melissa Lock start sharing the tools we've got to engage those tough moments.

    Not One Stone: When the Last Stone Falls

    Not One Stone: When the Last Stone Falls

    As human beings we can’t live off ideas. We need food to eat, houses for shelter, hands to hold and something tangible to believe in and belong to. It seems we have to build some sort of church, but just rebuilding a little better than what didn’t work before isn’t the answer. What can we do to meet our needs for something, but not lose the precious thing living within?

    Not One Stone: Knocking Over the Behavior Stone

    Not One Stone: Knocking Over the Behavior Stone

    The many fortresses that religion builds to keep people in line always separate us from God, but when they enforce ‘right behavior’ they actively harm people at the same time. Creating codes of behavior that say who is worthy of God’s love and who isn’t breeds shame and self-denial in the hearts of people. This is a time to talk straight about a stone that cannot be left standing.

    Not One Stone: Wrestle With God...Until You Lose

    Not One Stone: Wrestle With God...Until You Lose

    Victories come in all sorts of forms. Sometimes they come in defeat. There are, in fact, some wrestling matches you need to have, and you need to lose. A wrestling match we all have with life is our attempt to whip it into the shape that is best for us. When we do that, we get a version of ourselves, relationships, and even our churches that is no longer worthy of our devotion.
