A conversation around the future of the church in North America, hosted by Ashish Joy and Taylor Murray.

    15 // old issues new voices

    There's a lot going on. Whether it's the Israel-Palestine Conflict or the behavior of humans that is leading to anything but flourishing, the issues we're facing aren't new - they're old. We explore how we should think about these conflicts, and then the conversation shifts to talking about voices we grew up listening to. Preachers, leaders, writers - they shaped us. And while they may not be relevant to the younger generation, they still carry weight for us, because they were relevant in our formative years. Today, the younger generation is navigating what we had permission to navigate. We must give them the space to do what we did.

    14 // deconstructing the doge

    The DOGE has been on a wild ride this last year. And this last year, so has deconstruction. Depending on who you are and who's around you, this word can carry a negative weight, or it could be descriptive of where you find yourself. 
    We talk about good and bad deconstruction and how we can seek truth, confront the past and aim toward a compelling future. We reference several ideas and quotes from After Doubt: How To Question Your Faith Without Losing It, a book by A.J. Swoboda.

    We're back after a couple busy weeks with a brand new episode. Things are starting to open up - there are things we're excited for, but there are also things we're realizing about how we've been living. As we move forward, we might need to relearn how to live again.

    11 // sticker bushes & sacred spaces

    There's been a lot of talk this week about what is sacred and what is profane. Do "satan shoes" push the envelope too far? Why are people mad about it? And, what does the outrage (or lack of it) say about our culture today?

    10 // hope in the middle of pain

    EPISODE 10 - Joash Thomas returns to talk about the events of last week's mass shooting in Atlanta that left 8 dead, including 6 Asian women. How do events like these effect the church - and what conversations should it spark in how we approach concepts like sexuality and temptation? 

    DISCLAIMER: This episode was recorded early Monday morning, March 22nd, just hours before another mass shooting in Boulder, CO. While both are tragic, there is only mention of the events in Atlanta.
