People want black-and-white answers from the Bible, but as author Sarah Bessey puts it, scripture is a rainbow arch painted across a stormy sky.
We are two best friends who shed light on topics in the Church today through history, science, theology, & our love for Jesus.

purity rings, myths, and shame - oh my! with Dr. Camden Morgante | episode 10
This week, we explore the world of purity culture with our own personal guide, Dr. Camden Morgante!
With her expertise, we discuss the different kinds of myths that are created within the American Church as well as dissect questions that we have personally encountered regarding marriage, sex, and the fairytales that come with them. *
Due to the long-distance nature of this call, the audio recording reflects some connectivity & sound difficulties. Thanks for bearing with us and we pray that this is as much an encouragement to you as it was to us! For more information on Dr. Camden: https://drcamden.com/

The Lost Apostle | episode 8
This is the story of a woman who was part of the early Church. The story of a woman who may have listened at the feet of Jesus himself. A story that was nearly wiped from history.
This woman was revered as a symbol of faith for centuries, and in one stroke of a brush, her identity was tainted and her status questioned. Her name and gender were changed and taught as correct by men of great power in the church.
This history is rarely acknowledged, let alone taught. The average member of the Church today will most likely not know who she was.
Her name was Junia, and she was outstanding among the apostles.
