From the heart of the least religious region of the United States, join us - Shawn and Camille Brace - as we explore what it's like to pursue a missional life in Maine. We will discuss and share stories about discipleship, evangelism, church, missional communities, and the gospel - offering practical tips on how to live out the gospel as a family and church in everyday life.
Episode 112 - A Portland Hike
After an eighteen month absence, Shawn gives an update on their lives and solicits prayers for their future endeavors (both personally and missionally).
Episode 111 - A New Day: From Texas to Maine, on Mission With God
Shawn has a conversation with one of his new church members, Lori Day, who, along with her husband, Weston, showed up to his church a year ago, after making an unlikely move from Texas to Maine to join up with God's mission. Listen in as Lori shares her journey from atheism to grace, and from Texas to Maine.
Episode 110 - From Cape Breton to Christ, with Jimmy Bungay
Shawn interviews a long-time friend he's known since childhood - a friend from the boonies of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, where Shawn's family has a vacation home. Jimmy tells his remarkable story of coming to Christ - going from a context where there are very few Christians, and mostly just Catholics if anyone is, to one that is learning what it means to follow Jesus.
Episode 109 - The Greatest Evangelistic Meeting Ever?
Shawn shares about an experience he had recently doing a sort of "public" evangelistic meeting, asking if it was, perhaps, the most successful one ever conducted. Of course, there is a twist to the whole experience, and he asks the question a little tongue-in-cheek.
Episode 108 - Disciple-Making as Love-Making
Don't be too scandalized by the title: Shawn unpacks some recent realizations he's had about how to look at the idea of disciple-making. When understood in this way, he proposes it has a chance to elevate its significance.
