    Finding the Courage for Truth (#939)

    Finding the Courage for Truth (#939)

    At the start of their transcontinental trip to Virginia and back, Wayne and Sara pause in Austin, TX, to catch-up on Sara's journey and the continuing work of freedom Jesus is doing from her early childhood trauma. Recently, Sara's counselor affirmed the rare passion she demonstrates to discover the truth about herself and it has served her well in the process. Sara talks about the tools that have been built in her life to give her the courage to stay in that pursuit.

    Enjoy the Life God Gave You (#938)

    Enjoy the Life God Gave You (#938)

    If you aren't playing with God, you're probably not doing as much for him as you think. In this last podcast before Kyle takes a brief hiatus and Wayne and Sara head out for a trans-national trip, they revisit some of the important themes that have been on the podcast so far in 2024. Through listener emails, recounted conversations, and their own personal journeys, they talk about the destructiveness of dishonesty, active listening, praying for the bride, why religion love our imposter selves, the value of learning to play again, and the importance of not dividing between spiritual and secular in our daily lives.

    The Gethsemane Prayer (#937)

    The Gethsemane Prayer (#937)

    "Not my will, but yours be done."  We are familiar with the words and it's easy to tack them on to the end of our prayers as a token to submission. However, the power of these words come not as a tagline but when we let God melt our hearts enough in the whatever situation we find ourselves to choose his past, rather than making it about ourselves. Kyle and Wayne explore the journey of wholeheartedness that wanders through the ugly places where God makes his wonder known in life-transforming ways when we lay down what we think is best to choose what God knows to be.

    Praying for a Wayward Bride (#936)

    Praying for a Wayward Bride (#936)

    "Truth has been weaponized by the enemy to shift the focus from Jesus. The ‘truth’ as many believers see it has been removed from Him who is truth; it’s a talk about Him and His truth rather than with Him in love." Those words in an email from a listener's own journey came at a propitious time in Wayne's life, and processing it with Kyle takes them further into what it means to gaze with God at the events of the world. It has led Wayne to pray for the Bride of Christ and talk to her like he did to Sara in the days of there separation. Kindly and tenderly, is the way God reaches into our delusions to open the way for truth and love to find a home in her heart.

    Identity and the Connected Worldview (#935)

    Identity and the Connected Worldview (#935)

    "What are you most afraid of in your life right now, and who taught you that fear?" That is a key question to unmasking your false identity and help you discover who God has created you to be on the earth.  Wayne introduced Kyle to a podcast where Jamie Winship, the author of a book called, Living Fearless, was the guest. The podcast rocked Kyle's world and spilled out into two of his classrooms where he helped students process their personal identity and in his words, "Jesus showed up"—in a secular classroom.  They unpack some of Jamies thoughts about identity and worldviews that can help us all live freer and more connected to what ps going on around us.

    Seduced into Darkness (#934)

    Seduced into Darkness (#934)

    "What is the strange calculus of greed that causes it to catch up with even the most cautious, best-intentioned person?" This is one of four provocative questions one reviewer said are asked by the Academy-award nominated movie, Killers of the Flower Moon. The others are: Why does guilt drive some people to remorse, and others over the edge?  What is the power of a lie, that it can blind a person to a truth staring him in the face? How is it that what seems to be a blessing often turns out to be a curse? Wrestling with  those existential questions seemed to fit so well into the ongoing conversation Wayne and Kyle have been having this year about delusion and freedom and why even the best of us can be easily sidelined by darkness.  They also discuss whether or not every negative emotion is an invitation into transformation.

God Loves Me (period)

That’s what I FINALLY understood when all the performance based activities were allowed to fall away and let me just sit with a couple of brothers in the fellowship hall back when I was first introduced to you and Brad when the podcast was first started up. It has been a true gift to my daily walk with Father!
I have since launched my own podcast and your podcast was a big influence on how I wish to approach it from a stylistic/flow “ever expanding conversations” Thank you for all you do!

Good thoughts

Interesting, thought provoking, challenging… I love the emphasis on it being the God journey, not just about what I’m doing. I do find it somewhat offensive though that Wayne uses
the term “ Oh my gosh” so freely. Does he realize this is just another way of saying “ Oh my God”?

Loved the Thoughts from the Edge of Exploration Podcast with Jeff Andrechyn on June 28th 2019

Found myself inspired to reFire praying, thinking reaching for the places God’s leading me / us off the maps. This one pushed me - reminding: the person He intends is on the other side of the enemies, the Jordan, the opposition.

Orbiting conversations / men like this initiates a scan that looks into another realm of my heart... shows stuff that’s great, stuff that’s under-claimed, and stuff that needs to go.

These are the conversations- the bold hearts I need around me to keep accepting the invitations into MORE.
