    Ep. 94: Preston Sprinkle on a Biblical Approach to American Politics

    Ep. 94: Preston Sprinkle on a Biblical Approach to American Politics

    You may be in the tribe that tells you that Christianity and the Republican Party are one in the same. Or perhaps you are in the tribe that is a reaction to that approach, proclaiming that the policies of the Democrat Party are actually where Jesus would land. What if the Bible offers a very different approach to politics than the one most Christians today take? Preston Sprinkle explores this approach, comparing the United States to biblical Babylon, where God's people lived in exile, and to biblical Rome, where Jesus walked and the first century church got its start.
     
    New York Times bestselling author Dr. Preston M. Sprinkle has written more than a dozen books. He serves as the president of the Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender and as the host of the Theology in the Raw podcast.
     
    His new book is Exiles: Church in the Shadow of Empire.

    Ep. 93: Revoice Executive Director Michelle Sanchez on Caring for LGBTQ+/SSA People Well and on Division in the Church

    Ep. 93: Revoice Executive Director Michelle Sanchez on Caring for LGBTQ+/SSA People Well and on Division in the Church

    Noah has a conversation with Michelle Sanchez on the divisions (and attacks) that exist within the Church around doctrines relating to human sexuality and LGBTQ+/Same Sex Attracted people. We hope that after listening you are equipped with some great tools and are drawn to be more humble and Jesus-like in the way you treat all people. 
     
    Michelle T. Sanchez (M.Div., Th.M.) has served in various discipleship and evangelism leadership roles for more than a decade, including campus ministry, local church ministry, and national denominational leadership. She currently serves as Executive Director of Revoice. Founded in 2018, Revoice is a growing movement that supports and encourages gay, lesbian, bisexual, and other same-sex-attracted Christians—as well as those who love them—so that all in the Church might be empowered to live in gospel unity while observing the historic Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality in their local faith communities. Prior to this, Michelle served as Executive Minister of Make and Deepen Disciples for the Evangelical Covenant Church. She has worked as an investment banker with Goldman Sachs and has served in various capacities with the Institute for Bible Reading, Cru, and the Lausanne Movement. Michelle earned an M.Div. and Th.M. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, completed spiritual direction training at Boston College, and studied the life and times of Jesus at Jerusalem University College. She is the author of Color-Courageous Discipleship, Color-Courageous Discipleship Student Edition, and the picture book, God’s Beloved Community. Michelle is a frequent conference speaker whose writings have also appeared in Outreach Magazine, Faith & Leadership, Missio Alliance, The Priscilla Papers, The Message Women’s Devotional Bible (2025), and beyond. Find her at MichelleTSanchez.com.

    Ep. 92: Ken Wytsma on Chronic Pain, Compassion Fatigue, and a Theology of Suffering

    Ep. 92: Ken Wytsma on Chronic Pain, Compassion Fatigue, and a Theology of Suffering

    Ken Wytsma discusses his journey from being a high-achieving leader to one slowed down by chronic illness and how this has made him relook at his identity. Throughout this conversation, Ken shares a lot of wisdom gained from doing pastoral and justice work for decades, including how to go at a sustainable pace.
    Ken is a pastor, entrepreneur, and thought-leader. He is the founder of The Justice Conference, which has reached over thirty thousand people across eleven countries with a message on a theology of justice and God’s call to give our lives away.
    Ken is also the author of Pursuing Justice, The Grand Paradox, Create vs. Copy, Redeeming How We Talk, The Myth of Equality, which was named as one of the Top-Five Religion Books of 2017 by Publishers Weekly.

Grit and Glory

This is one of the few podcasts (and relatively few pastors with any kind of social media outlet, for that matter, in relation to the general throng of attention-seekers) that think, believe, teach, and speak vulnerably, thoughtfully, candidly, transparently, and humbly about the fact that the gospel is GRITTY. It isn’t there to build megachurches or validate celebrity pastors with cool shoes and big egos. It’s for -everyone-. It’s hope for the hopeless, justice for the oppressed, peace for the lonely, the marginalized, the hurting, and the poor, and it’s life for everyone who is able or willing to consider that being safe, secure, comfortable, and wealthy does -not- mean that God’s “blessing” is upon us. Noah asks hard questions and approaches things thoughtfully and humbly, and I ask and encourage you to listen to this podcast with palms open and not in fists, ready to grip or defend what you came in with.
