Welcome to Second Cup with Keith.


In this podcast, our host, author, theologian, and podcaster Keith Giles, will provide new insights and perspectives on a variety of questions and topics related to the Christian faith.


As a formerly licensed and ordained pastor, Keith Giles has spent over a decade behind the pulpit serving in several churches over the years. After leaving all of that behind to start a house church in Southern California that gave away 100% of the offerings to help the poor in their community, he and his wife, Wendy, moved back to El Paso, TX [where they originally met in College]. Today, they work with Peace Catalyst International, an organization devoted to developing reconciliation between Muslims and Christians. Keith also leads a 12-week online course and community called Square 1 devoted to helping people navigate their journey from Deconstruction to Reconstruction.


So, pull up a chair, pour yourself a hot mug of your favorite coffee or tea, and let's learn something new together.

    30: Unity Without Agreement

    30: Unity Without Agreement

    Most of us grew up in Christian circles where agreement was a requirement for unity and community. But, once we changed our minds about what we believed we realized that this "community" was an illusion and our "unity" wasn't real. So, is there another way to experience community and unity outside of agreement? Yes! Listen as we explore new and better ways to experience unity and community without agreement.

Excellent Podcast

This is an excellent Podcast, a must-listen for our christian times. No mumbo jumbo or confusing Latin or Greek theology. Like Jesus Christ, Keith has a simple message so that a child or a fisherman can understand what he is saying. It’s easy podcast listening with no guilt trips or running to the dictionary to find a difficult word. Importantly the topics ate fresh and relevant, especially to anyone who is deconstructing/reconstructing their religion. Thanks, Keith.

Mt.6:24 ,

Happy to find this gem...

Really diggin this podcast!!!

Hope to eventually hear more about Jesus’ answer(s) to capitalism when he talks about forsaking private property/wealth to share in common with other followers as well as his God or money ultimatum & how this vision reflects God’s ultimate intention for mankind where LOVE, not money, is the ONLY currency.

Definitely some difficult talking points but I think ppl are ready & spiritually hungry enough to chow down!
