    Episode 19 "Peace in a Mad, Mad World"

    Episode 19 "Peace in a Mad, Mad World"

    Episode 19 is Here! Four pastors discussing and debating faith, relationships, pop culture, politics, ministry, food, entertainment, theology and much more!
    Welcome to Post Christian Pastors! This episode was recorded just a day after the tragic shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and over 500 people injured, some of those barely clinging to life. The guys spend the first part of the podcast talking about the shooting and looking for answers to the senseless violence in Vegas. They then turn their attention to our divided culture which is filled with OUTRAGE and DIVISION. From political divisions, racial divisions, to battles over players kneeling during the national anthem and more, all mixed together has left many feeling hopeless about our future as a people. Unity and dialogue in our differences seems impossible. How can we build bridges to each other and hear each other? Those are just some of the questions pursued during our discussion. It is an impactful discussion and will be useful to you as you pursue PEACE in your context.
    Joining the guys for the discussion is guest Jon Huckins
    Jon is a pastor, author, and leadership coach. He is the Co-Founding Director of The Global Immersion Project, a peacemaking training organization that is activating the North American Church as an instrument of peace. He is also on staff with Thresholds as a missional church leadership coach and co-leads a neighborhood faith community.
    Jon spends his life coaching organizations and people on how to be peace makers here at home and internationally. Our focus with Jon is unpacking his latest book Mending The Divides: Creative Love in a Conflicted World with Jer Swigart. It is a great read which we highly recommend during these divisive days.
    He has a Master’s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and writes for numerous publications including, TheOOZE, Red Letter Christians, Sojourners, RELEVANT and Burnside Writer’s Collective. He has written a few books Teaching Through the Art of Storytelling, Thin Places: Six Postures for Creating and Practicing Missional Community.
    He lives in San Diego with his wife Jan and four kids.

Fun, Informative, & Challenging for Christians or Non-Christians

This was very good. The format was engaging and made me want to keep listening from segment to segment. They had a lot of fun while also covering a lot of ground, not afraid to talk about controversial issues in a really calm and matter-of-fact way. The pastors (and guest) seemed knowledgeable and intelligent with great senses of humor, so it made the discussions really enjoyable to listen to. I felt like I was in the room with them. They addressed all sides of the issues and were able to speak plainly and apply everything they were talking about to their life experiences, with a little bit of jargon thrown in that showed they know their subject well.
