This is it.

Wow. These conversations are what we need, especially right now. Thank you Matthew, Alison, and Jim for your openness and willingness to dive deep into these issues and to discuss what Jesus would actually be doing if He were walking among us today. He IS among us, through His people, and this series of conversations make that a much clearer reality for me.

We could use another series, now please ?

What would Jesus do? I feel only one answer: he’d be standing with our brothers. He’d be promoting justice, standing for peace.. he’d not be holding a Bible while tear gassing innocent peaceful protesters.. tell me I have it correct.. I follow the radical Jesus.. Jesus turns over the money tables, dines with sinners, forgives thieves on the cross.. am I wrong? My heart is broken.. Father have you forsaken us?

Faith, hope, and a muscular love

I accidentally found this podcast, I’m so glad I did. When I hear this, I think, “Yes. Finally. This is the kind of Christian I am.”

I haven’t felt that in a very, very long time.

Thank you to the hosts, guests, and crew behind this excellent project.
