Exploring the relentless grace of God toward jacked-up people who don’t deserve it one bit.

    Social Media Fast 2020

    Social Media Fast 2020

    July is a key month in my personal spiritual rhythms because it's the month I fast from social media and try to live a more analog life. But because of everything happening in the world, it almost seems wrong to disappear for a month. As I reflected on that, I realized that is exactly why I need to unplug for the month. In this episode, I explain why.

    The Intersection of Faith, Gender, and Sexuality (a conversation with Nate Collins)

    The Intersection of Faith, Gender, and Sexuality (a conversation with Nate Collins)

    In this episode, Noel talks to author Dr. Nate Collins (founder of Revoice). They discuss Collins’ book, All But Invisible: Exploring Identity Questions at the Intersection of Faith, Gender, and Sexuality.

    “For many years the intersection of gay identity and Christian identity in the United States was a virtual no-man’s land. In All But Invisible, author Nate Collins explores the cultural background of this claim and outlines a vision for Christian community in which straight and nonstraight people might be reconciled so they can flourish together in full awareness of their shared humanity.”

    Here are some links from their discussion.

You are absolutely incredible. The world needs more of you. Never stop making these podcasts. You bring me back to God when I feel myself fading away. Thank you!!

5 minute rule

I found this podcast through a Facebook share. Looking at it, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. I usually give things the 5 minute rule and this podcast had me wanting to hear more. :)

Love Recovering Hypocrite!

I’m a podcast lover so when I saw Noel had one I was so excited to listen. I love the format and the messages are great. It was a treat to hear the interview with his daughter, Emma. Keep up the good work, Noel!
