After years of being a square peg trying to fit in round holes it became obvious that the effort just wasn’t worth it. God said “Stop doing that!” But here’s the thing: I know lots and lots of other people who’ve tried to fit in with the church without much success but to varying degrees pain, shame and apathy. This show is for them. It’s an effort to let people who might not otherwise have the opportunity hear (or overhear) good news.

Each week listeners will get a bit of prayer, a bit of scripture reflection, some music, maybe a few other things if I get creative. Most weeks—God willing and schedules allowing—there will also be an interview. I have no idea what it will be about.

@dcrescitelli ,

Just what this seeker needed...

Loved the wonderful, eclectic music and the choice for scripture reader (Kaya is great!). I know that Jesus is found in the margins... and I love that Pastor Dan goes there with Him.
