Between ourselves and others, there is a space. Sometimes that space is too small for certain topics. The space can be stretched and even be broken. But sometimes you meet another person with a shared spirit. And the space between is big enough for almost anything.

Friends. Brothers. Fellow Jesus Followers. Doug and Nick choose topics that are of interest regarding various areas, but especially around spirituality, and simply dialogue about them. They think differently and have differing opinions - which makes the conversation fantastic.

    A Time To Catch Up

    A Time To Catch Up

    Synopsis: The Space Between is trying something a little different for season two - release, with great regularity rather than complete spontaneity, our episodes each month (on the 15th) which means pre-recording episodes.

    This episode was recorded exactly 4 months ago. Which means that we were catching up before the 2nd COVID lock down, after the 1st presidential debate, prior to the election .... and we're talking about all that stuff and more. Fascinating to listen to our predictions about these things and see how they aged.

    We hope you enjoy catching up with us and once again we look forward to further dialogue here on our Facebook Page. Lets lean in as a community rather than away.

    Welcome to the Space Between.

    Please look for us on Facebook ("The Space Between Podcast") as a way to continue dialogue regarding episode topics.

    Pilgrims

    Synopsis: The Underground Bunker was alive with conversation regarding where we are in our spiritual lives. On a previous episode Nick mentioned that he was not a Universalist and Doug mentioned that perhaps he was a Buddhist. And although this particular episode was on our upcoming roster we felt that this may one the appropriate time to jump in. We encourage you to consider where you might be in your own Spiritual Journey ... how would you describe your influences and your particular theological understandings?

It’s a love/hate kinda thing

So I have been holding off on dropping a review for quite a while. I know Dougie personally(and love him and his family), but did not just want to drop five stars unless he earned it. I wanted time to actually listen, to hear and understand what was being shared. Well, I’ve had that time and opportunity....and my verdict is complicated. I love this podcast, but I hate some of what they say. This is not because I am offended or find what they say to be blasphemous, but because it challenges me....challenges MY picture of God. I have been forced to reevaluate beliefs that I have (blindly) held onto since early childhood, to dig a little deeper while also loosening my grip. It has not been easy and has even shaken me to the core at times....but it has sparked growth. I believe these gentlemen love Christ, they love their listeners, and they want to be a part of healing a broken world...because of this I encourage you to give them a listen. You may agree with them, you may not, but I think everyone can appreciate where they are coming from. In a world that is so black and white, so polarized, I find that truth and understanding usually lies in the space between. Thanks guys, keep pressing, God bless.
