    Oil & Water?

    Oil & Water?

    On this episode of Good News/Good Brews, Jamie and Alex recap the winter storm that swept across Texas, and the role the Church has in disaster response. As we know, oil and water do not mix. But, maybe they do? Let's figure it out together.


     


    Finally, Jamie has some exciting breaking news, and offers some wisdom on how sometimes it is just best to get out of the way. Alex takes a risk on a new "essential" coffee order, and shares some heartfelt good news.

    The "E" Word

    The "E" Word

    The Already & the Not Yet

    The Already & the Not Yet

    On this episode of Good News/Good Brews, we sit down with the Senior Minister of University Christian Church, Fort Worth, Rev. Dr. Russ Peterman. We talked with Russ about how curiosity informs faith, and how faith is a moving, shifting thing rather than a static set of beliefs. 2020 shook things up for all of us, and Russ shares some thoughts on the matter. Our curiosity abounds, and leads us forward in our journey together.


    Jamie is drinking Pike's Place (not Pike's Peak) and still struggling through "Dry January," Alex gets fancy with an English Breakfast Tea, and Russ gets nostalgic about his home beer-brewing days. Also, we ventured into a special segment we're calling "Tiger Talk." All of this, and more!


    God loves us as we are, but God loves us way too much to let us stay this way. Cheers!
