“We are a community of young adults from Flatirons Church who want to create a space to talk about real things, with real people. We want to ask the hard questions we THINK we can’t ask in church world. Christians (including us) suck at engaging in these hard conversations, but Jesus never ignores them. He meets our questions with hard truth, and big grace. Like him, we want to engage in these hard conversations with leaders who offer challenging truths paired with authenticity and vulnerability. We don’t need another platform for us to talk AT you. Instead, we want to hear FROM you! We hope that you will tune in as we carve out space to ask hard questions, hear challenging truths, learn from wise voices, and listen to your stories; all while keeping it real and not taking ourselves too seriously.”

How to Approach Dating in 2023
Dating as young adult who is trying to follow Jesus can be frustrating and confusing. There are so many questions we are all asking as it pertains to HOW to date and WHY we should pursue dating in the first place. What is a man's role in dating? Does the Bible say anything geared towards women in the dating scene? What is even the purpose of dating? While there is no dating section of the Bible, the Bible does have a lot to offer us towards how we can approach dating. While there is so much to unpack around this topic, if we don't have our approach and our direction towards dating figured out, we run the risk of having our dating lives drift to a place that we never wanted it to go. We hope you find this episode insightful and impactful as we unpack what the Bible gives us around how we can build an approach towards dating that holds up and takes us closer to where God wants us to go.
How does God help us make decisions?
Decision making can often seem challenging and confusing. From figuring out where to work, where to live, and who to date, there are a number of decisions that young adults face on a frequent basis. With no playbook to follow, it can become frustrating when it feels like God isn't answering our prayers for direction or remaining silent towards these big decisions in our lives. With that being said, the question becomes, what is God's role in helping us make decisions? Does He always tell us what to do? Does He leave some of that up to us? What do we do when we feel like we aren't getting anything from Him? On this episode, we unpack those questions and unpack how we have seen God influence our lives as it pertains to decision making and what we've learned around this topic as a whole. We also give some practical steps on how to go about making a decision as a follower of Jesus in modern times.

For men, it can be difficult to know what we are supposed to be striving towards and as young women, it can be difficult to know what to look for in a man. Dan sits down with us to share a little bit of his story, to discuss the foundation laid for us in the Bible as it pertains to what it means to be a man, how Jesus modeled what masculinity looks like through yielding and loving, and how young men can start discovering what it means to be a man.
