    S.3 Episode 30: Making Things Right

    I have always loved home repair shows, even though I am not very handy with home repairs. A couple of home repair shows have taught me a thing or two about the need for us to create spiritual homes where we can thrive.

    S.3 Episode 29: True Art and Spirituality is the Process

    S.3 Episode 29: True Art and Spirituality is the Process

    There is something about the process of creating art, as well as Netflix's Blown Away, that reminds me of the process of the spiritual life.

    S.3 Episode 28: You're Not a True Dancer Until You Fall

    S.3 Episode 28: You're Not a True Dancer Until You Fall

    As a Musical Theatre Performance major in college, I took a lot of dance classes. It was one in particular where I learned it wasn't perfection that made you a dancer, but falling did. Maybe the spiritual life is similar.

    S.3 Episode 27: The Tree Envelops the Fence

    Remember Instagram before it was Instagram? One of my favorite posts was of a tree enveloping a fence. That picture made me think there might be a connection with God.

    S.3 Episode 26: See No Stranger

    S.3 Episode 26: See No Stranger

    I read Valarie Kaur's book, See No Stranger, last year and it really impacted me. Seeing someone as a stranger can actually do much harm. And, maybe seeing strangers as humans can be a healing balm to our world.

An absolute Keeper!

If hearing an exciting, passionate and emotional story-teller is one of your pursuits, without a doubt, this is your type of podcast! Real and exciting. Nathan is a natural. Sept 29th: ...great convo with Ray McKinnon re: racial unrest in Charlotte. Real and emotive. Let's stop the dehumanizing! He’s back...and opening up a brand new direction. Get ready for Healthy deconstruction and Humbling revelations.

Short and Meaningful all in ONE

I absolutely love listening to Nathan. He is intentional, intelligent, and inclusive. I love how short, sweet, and to the point he is with his episodes! Recommending to all my friends!

A shift and an opening

I first came across Nathan on twitter and I liked a comment and had a quick retort, but something made me come back and check out his podcast and I have been pleasantly surprised. I started with the latest episode and then had to google the term : Contemplative. In realized growing up in the Black Baptist experience you’re encouraged to be loud and obvious with your praise but I’ve always been a quiet and introverted person, so that didn’t resonate. But in each episode I am learning forms of praise and connecting that weren’t shared with me before. I am intrigued, I am reconnecting and I’m learning, just because I’m not shouting, yelling and waving my arms doesn’t mean I am not connected. God is personal and that intimacy is sacred and I appreciate the gentle way Nathan shares and explains various ways to live, breathe and have my being in God. I am excited to find a way or ways that work for me. Thank you Nathan for this beautiful work.
