Life is hard some times!

People often long for safe places where they can express their grief, confusion or even anger. Whether you are deconstructing, questioning, or doubting, you are welcome and valued here.  When many of us venture out to find healing or relief or adventure, it can often feel like walking out into the Desert.

Welcome to our Sanctuary in the Desert. You are welcome to share your thoughts and what you are producing while you are processing. We will endeavor to lean toward the contemplative and shy away from politics.

Karl Is wonderful

Today we don’t need more people with all the answers, we need father-like figures just like Karl to walk with us, impart wisdom, be proud of us, to encourage us to go even further than his generation. And Karl delivers. I can’t say enough good things about the heart and message behind this podcast. Definitely worth your time and attention. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just a great guy!

Karl is a simple, unassuming man. But when he opens his heart, you will find a friend who understands what organized church can do to a person. Then he offers help to everyone who needs a gentle reminder that Jesus’ love is real and grace is available to all of us! This podcast, and its host, are legit.

Refreshing!

I love this podcast. Karl and Laura are wonderful human beings who live humbly and authentically and that really comes through on the podcast. These conversations are a cool, refreshing stream in a dry and thirsty land.
