Where does it hurt? Will I ever feel whole? Where do I belong? If these questions resonate with you, you’re in the right place. In this podcast, we'll utilize personal narratives and powerful questions to investigate the truths that go unnoticed. This is not a podcast for the faint of heart. We are going to face darkness, pain, and fear because they alone can introduce us to our most authentic selves. Above all else, this podcast reminds you that you aren’t alone. Despite what our social media feeds tell us, pain is more prevalent than we’d like to believe. Together we can explore our own invisible truths and experience restoration as we live out the principles of Radical Self-Awareness™.

MVPittman ,

This is that work.

Ben and his guests deal with the hard work that religion has attempted to address for a long time. It’s tempting to write this off as a self-gratifying endeavor by a person trying to make it in the world. What is valuable, however, is that the struggle is relatable and real for every listener.

Do yourself a favor and subscribe. Be open to what is said and take what you need. It is offered freely, like grace, and might turn out to be healing, like living water.

Grateful for your voice in the Mennonite mix as a fellow MILLENNIAL, as a Black man, progressive, authentically weaving stories and scriptures and great insights! You’re up next. I’ll be watching.
