    Joy Brooks & Justin Marsh - Surviving Spiritual Abuse

    Joy Brooks & Justin Marsh - Surviving Spiritual Abuse

    Therapists Justin and Joy get together for a conversation about spiritual abuse and how it can present in a church environment. Reflecting on their personal experiences, they explore the impact of spiritual abuse, describing how they learnt to recognise it and what it was like to walk away from congregations they cared about deeply. They also share some of the healing and growth that has taken place as their lives changed and they began to recover and rebuild in different areas of their lives.

    Elizabeth Oldfield - Making Friends Across Boundaries

    Elizabeth Oldfield - Making Friends Across Boundaries

    In this episode we speak with the director of Theos Think Tank and host of The Sacred podcast, Elizabeth Oldfield.
    Elizabeth is passionate about exploring how we can build healthy friendships and societies in an age characterised by seemingly ever deepening differences, and what role faith can play in this.
    So we ask Elizabeth why we find it so hard to relate to people who are culturally, politically and religiously different from ourselves, and how we can begin to overcome this.

    Peter Rollins - Radical Theology

    Peter Rollins - Radical Theology

    In this episode we discuss radical theology with author, philosopher and storyteller Peter Rollins. Peter explores the freedom that comes when we accept and embrace the lack within us and the struggle within life. He believes that letting go of the frenetic pursuit of that which will make us whole and complete opens the way to accepting the lack within and finding enjoyment within the struggles of life. From this place of freedom we find God in the act of love, the depth dimension of our experiences, and in a continual transformative conversation.
    It’s a mind bending and inspiring conversation.

Prayer

This podcast has been a welcome lifeline for me. I love the variety of guests, both in beliefs and geographic homes. The Karris interview in prayer was a perfect example of how you all encourage me and help me to grow. Love all the hosts too. Thank you, brothers and sisters.

Great!

It’s great even in this side of the pond. Imagine hanging out with a couple of blokes at the pub talking about life, God, and religion. That’s this podcast except they just happen to have people like Tom Wright and Alexander Shaia drop by for a bit.

Engaging
