    Ep. 116: The Spiritual Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Us with Pastor Dave Ripper

    Ep. 116: The Spiritual Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Us with Pastor Dave Ripper

    When you hear the phrase "spiritual disciplines," what comes to mind? Is it a list of unachievable practices? Another set of standards against which you fall short?

    We firmly believe God's heart is to give us new life through the spiritual disciplines, to refresh and renew us, to be the sustainer of these habits - not to force us into a place of striving.

    That's why we're launching our spiritual disciplines series, so together we can explore the nature, impact, and practical execution of the spiritual disciplines as detailed in the works of Dallas Willard. We're kicking off with a two part series with Pastor Dave Ripper of Crossway Christian Church in Nashua, NH. Join us as we press into God's heart for the spiritual disciplines in the context of our transformation!

    Ep. 113: Exploring the Enduring Allure of C.S. Lewis with Jahdiel Perez

    Ep. 113: Exploring the Enduring Allure of C.S. Lewis with Jahdiel Perez

    Few Christians haven't heard of C.S. Lewis and his masterful writing - but why? Why has Lewis - among many other talented Christian authors - impacted so many believers in comparison? And what kind of impact has he left behind?

    Today Jahdiel Perez walks us through some of the reasons why Lewis has proved so influential, even over his own life! Jahdiel is a professor at Villanova University, and is completing his Doctorate in Philosophy at Oxford, where he was president of the C.S. Lewis Society.

    Ep. 112: Best-Of Episode, The Role of Listening in Mental Health, with Rev. Liz Walker

    Happy New Year! As our team takes a break for the holidays, we're sharing a few of our best episodes of the past year, including this episode with Rev. Liz Walker!

    Mental health was already a crisis before the pandemic - but now, many churches and ministries find themselves inundated with church family members in desperate need of support for their mental health.

    In this episode we talk with Rev. Liz Walker, now retired senior pastor of Roxbury Presbyterian Church in Boston, MA, where she founded the Corey Johnson Program and Can We Talk. Rev. Liz has successfully instituted and sustained Can We Talk, a "community-designed and driven program that promotes healing from trauma" through conversation.

    Merry Christmas! As our team takes a break for the holidays, we're sharing a few of our best episodes of the past year, including this episode with Pastor Johana Perez!

    It’s an honor to disciple our own children, but that doesn’t mean training them up in the way they should go is stress-free.

    That’s why we’re thrilled to have Johana Perez! She's the pastor of Family Ministries at Harvest Ministries of New England, and Director of Leadership and Educational Programs of Copahni. She's an exemplary practitioner in family ministries and has incredible insight on humbly, patiently discipling your children.  Her wisdom and the scripture she shares bring grace and clarity to the process of growing your children into disciples.
