    Our Values - Participation

    Our Values - Participation

    We are in a series right now where we are talking about our core values as a church. In our last episode we talked about the value of Spirit sensitivity. If you haven’t listened to it, we encourage you to check it out. Brené Brown says we can’t live into values we can’t name. So that’s what we are doing in this series; we are naming our values as a church so that we can live into them.
    Today we’re talking about another one of our core values as a church which is participation. We want to be a church that steps beyond weekend attendance into active participation knowing that the church is the sum total of everyone’s efforts. In this episode we talk about what gets in the way of participation, why participation is essential to our formation and we highlight some of the primary ways people can participate in our church community.

    Our Values - Spirit-Sensitivity

    Our Values - Spirit-Sensitivity

    We are in a series right now where we are talking about our core values as a church. In our last episode we talked about the value of discipleship. If you haven’t listened to it, we encourage you to check it out. Brené Brown says we can’t live into values we can’t name. So that’s what we are doing in this series; we are naming our values as a church so that we can live into them.
    Today we’re talking about another one of our core values as a church which is Spirit-sensitivity. We want to be a community that is sensitive to the movement and the leadership of the Spirit of God. Being responsive to the Holy Spirit is an idea that’s easy to agree with in theory, but it’s a whole separate thing to actually practice it. In this episode, we unpack what Spirit-sensitivity means, we look at what it looks like to embody this value, and how this challenges or critiques some of our default ways of operating as a church.

    Our Values - Discipleship

    Our Values - Discipleship

    Today we’re talking about one of our most important core values as a church which is a discipleship.
    Multiplying disciples of Jesus is the primary reason we exist as a church. And yet, pretty much every church would say this. The words “disciple” and “discipleship” are used in lots of churches but they are often used in very different ways.
    So in this episode, we not only want to define what we mean when we talk about discipleship, but we also get into the discipleship crisis that is currently plaguing the church in the US and what that means for us as a church community.

    Mentioned in this episode:
    Church as Movement by Dan White Jr. & JR Woodward
    The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer

    Why Values Matter

    Why Values Matter

    This is the first episode in our series on values and today we hope to provide a basic introduction to the topic of values. What are values? Why do they matter? How do values help us as a church community?
    Naming and living into values shapes the people that we become and, as followers of Jesus, we want to become more like Jesus.
    We all have values, whether we realize it or not, and we’ll look at how we can begin to identify what our values are and how we can begin to live into them.

    Mentioned in this episode:
    Brené Brown - List of Values
    Let My People Go Surfing - Yvon Chouinard
    The Leader’s Journey

Finally a safe place!

So glad to listen to someone WHO GETS IT! Who answers the hard questions with no judgement. My husband was just saying how he started listening to a video that questioned "is Christianity real" from an ex evangelical. He said he turned it off right away because he didn't want to be convinced. I asked him "why"? If you question something, shoving it down and pretending it doesn't exist doesn't help. I pointed him to this podcast right away and hope to hear more about this!
