    A rogue comment on a tweet about contentment led to this episode featuring Pastor Ronnie Martin. He and Noel talk about why it's so hard to be content, if  contentment is more difficult now than ever, and the role of so-called "holy discontentment" in the life of a follower of Jesus.

    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.

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!
