Aaron Niequist hosts a podcast through his book--The Eternal Current--one episode per chapter. Each episode will 1) Reflect on the key idea of that chapter, 2) Have a conversation with someone who is living it out in the world, and 3) Learn a concrete practice that helps us flesh this theme into our hearts, bodies, and relationships. Not merely about ideas...but learning how to swim.
The Lord's Prayer Ep 10: An Embodied Hope (with Glenn Packiam)
How can we have hope when the world feels this messed up? Glenn Packiam brings his doctoral research plus years of pastoral ministry to help us move beyond simplistic optimism and into a deep, grounded, Christian Hope. Both theologically rigorous and surprisingly practical, this episode helps us cultivate an embodied hope that propels us into the work of building for God’s Kingdom right now, on earth as it is in Heaven.
The Construct of Race, the Evangelical Church, and the Mind of Christ (with Daniel Hill)
