Moving Forward - S2E10
That's a wrap for season two, as we reflect on what we've learned. We also hear from a church that is taking the next steps to create a hospitable environment in which all God's people thrive. It may sound like a tall order, but we know that God can provide us with abundant love and resources.
Doing the Work - S2E9
Gerard and Janine look at the ministry of a familiar congregation to highlight the importance of partnering with churches outside your neighborhood. We see that the benefits go both ways.
Adjusting the Paradigm - S2E8
We all have a unique way of viewing the world. In this episode, Janine and Gerard explore ways to adjust the paradigm and view the world as Christ does.
Pass the Ball - S2E7
In this episode, we look at the ways sports offer key insights into living as the Body of Christ. Teamwork is key. It's important we know our roles and share the goal. We also explore why it's important to center the experiences of minority groups.
Agree on the Problem, Part 2 - S2E6
Gerard and Janine continue to explore the reasons why people are unconcerned about partiality in the church and society. They share some of their own experiences and consider some potential solutions.
Agree on the Problem, Part 1 - S2E5
Some Christians don't feel that reconciliation work is urgent. Why is that? How can churches better reflect the multiethnic wisdom of our heavenly Father? Gerard and Janine start a two-part conversation about Barna's Beyond Diversity study.
The Lord is so good to me
Another gift of a Christ centred yet practical podcast to help us while getting along with our brothers and sisters.
I can’t even recall how I came across this podcast right now. But I’ve been listening to episodes constantly for the last week or so. I’m looking forward to Season 2 and hope Gerard and Janine will come to produce weekly podcasts. I know that’s a lot of work. But they have voices and experiences worth listening to.
Between their brother-sister relationship shaping a view of life lived with others, an accessible and intentional orthodox theology, and lives clearly affected by the gospel of Jesus Christ, these two make for great conversation-listening which will move anyone paying attention.
A very helpful program
This program has been very helpful to me (a white American) living in Asia for the past sixteen years. I thought I had these subjects figured out, but these episodes are helping me to rethink these issues and how they apply in my life. Thank you to LHM for sponsoring the production and offering for these programs.
