    Confession (Episode 18)

    Confession (Episode 18)

    What is confession, and why is it such an important part of practicing the Christian faith? Ansen and Chaplain Justin discuss how confession is so much more than just admitting all the bad stuff you've done. It's "agreeing with God" and telling the whole truth... not just about our character, but about God's... including has faithfulness to forgive and cleanse.

    Sin (Episode 17)

    Sin (Episode 17)

    During the season of Lent, Christians around the world spend a few weeks in solemn observance of their own sinfulness and mortality. Sounds like a good time, right? But have you ever heard someone make the case that the Christian doctrine of sin is actually part of the good news of the gospel? Chaplain Justin and Ansen discuss what sin nature means for our lives and futures, and try to answer the question, "Is it really ok not to be ok?"

    Hagar & Ishmael (Episode 16)

    Hagar & Ishmael (Episode 16)

    What do we do with the rather curious story of an oppressed slave-woman named Hagar and her "not the chosen one" son, Ishmael that we find in the book of Genesis? What do we do with Biblical "heroes" like Abraham and Sarah whose actions seem anything but "heroic?" And what can this strange story teach us about God's desires for the oppressed and marginalized nations and people groups of the world?

    Praise & Worship (Episode 15)

    Praise & Worship (Episode 15)

    Across all types and denominations of churches, worship services have at least one thing in common: singing. If you grew up in Christian culture, you've probably never questioned this practice. If you didn't, the idea of corporate worship might be... odd, at the least. Where does this practice originate, and why is it so important? Chaplain Justin and Ansen take a second look at the Christian practice of praise & worship.

    Social Justice (Episode 14)

    Social Justice (Episode 14)

    The phrase "social justice" has become a flashpoint for controversy and conflict in American politics and culture. But while social justice has been given new meaning in modern times, the idea of helping and serving "the least of these" is far from new. What would a social justice look like with the gospel of Jesus as its foundation? And is there any potential for unity in the midst of such a fractious debate?

    The Woman at the Well (Episode 13)

    The Woman at the Well (Episode 13)

    The woman at the well, as she's known, often gets a bad rap. To some, it's the story of an adulterous woman living in unrepentant sin who is confronted by Jesus. Is this just another example of the Bible marginalizing women? Justin and Ansen take another look at this well-known passage, and find a woman who, far from being condemned, is chosen by the Messiah himself to play a remarkable role in God's rescue plan.
