This week, I am excited to welcome Matt Tebbe and Ben Sterke to the table. Matt and Ben are the cofounders of Gravity Leadership, an organization focused on transformational leadership and discipleship. We chat about how in order to evolve we need more than a change in practice: we need a change in paradigm.
Through eight transformative axioms found in their book Having the Mind of Christ: Eight Axioms to Cultivate a Robust Faith, Matt and Ben lay out a guide to connect with Christ that helps us be open more fully to God, ourselves, and others. By putting on new glasses so to speak, we can embrace the healing and change God wants for our lives.
Matt, Ben and I dive into the important stuff: letting go to accept God’s love, practicing self-honesty to invite healing, recovering (in many different ways) while walking a path of faith, and accepting ourselves and others for who they are – fully.
Here’s what we connect on:
How to achieve connectedness, and not correctness, with God
The healing power found in rigorous self-honesty
Waking up to God, who is already here and present
Learning that God shows up with unconditional love and acceptance in our messy reality, even when we aren’t able to show up for ourselves.
Looking past shame, fear and doubt to see the truth about ourselves by trusting in God.
How compassionate awareness, creative alignment and cooperative action are essential tools on our faith journey
