A podcast about Living Freely in a World Given Back to Us.

    Lifelong Learning for Ministry

    Lifelong Learning for Ministry

    In episode TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-TWO, Mike, Jason, and Wade discuss the importance of lifelong learning, especially for clergy. Just as confirmation is the beginning of a life of learning, so also graduation from seminary is the same. All three of the guys admit they could do better, but it's important to use the tools we've been given to continue to grow professionally and personally. We hope you enjoy the episode!

    Religions and Denominations

    Religions and Denominations

    In episode TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-ONE, Mike and Wade (has anyone seen Jason anywhere lately?) discuss religions and denominations? What is a religion? What is a denomination? To what degree are these useful categories? How does Christianity fit? How does Lutheranism fit? Can all religions and denominations be lumped together and compared and contrasted? We hope you enjoy the episode!

    Image of God

    Image of God

    In episode TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-NINE, Mike, Wade, and Greg (should he just replace Jason longterm?) discuss the image of God. What is it? How do different Christian theologians and churches treat it? Do we still have it? If so, how? What role does it play in theology in general? We hope you enjoy the episode!

    The Presence of God

    The Presence of God

    In episode TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-EIGHT, Mike, Jason, and Wade build on our previous two episodes on travel, books and language and time and space. Where is God present? Is God present the same way in every place where he is present? Where should we look for God? Where shouldn't we look? We hope you enjoy the episode!

    Time and Space

    Time and Space

    In episode TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-SEVEN, Mike, Jason, and Wade discuss time and space, building on Episode 276 (Travel, Books, and Langauge). Is there such a thing as sacred time and space? If so, what makes it sacred? How do Christians relate to time and space? What fills the void if we don't fill time and space with the right things? We hope you enjoy the episode!

Free in Christ

I’m so blessed with this podcast. I can celebrate my freedom, be encouraged & enlightened. And you shall know the truth & the truth shall set you free. @BadgerSmith7

Finally a show for truckers!

Edifying!

I can listen to these guys all day! Their discussions on Biblical truths, philosophy, and culture are deep yet accessible. Mike and Wade are also engaging and entertaining. I learn every episode, and my faith grows as they mine the riches of Biblical theology.
