    S.3 Episode 37: What is the Loving Thing to Do?

    S.3 Episode 37: What is the Loving Thing to Do?

    I am not a normal or wise person and this caused me to cut open my hand with scissors. This got me thinking about the damage and pain we cause when we're not aware. Yet, it got me thinking about how much damage and pain our theological beliefs cause.

    S.3 Episode 36: Sea Glass as the Spiritual Life

    S.3 Episode 36: Sea Glass as the Spiritual Life

    I am mildly obsessed with sea glass. And by mildly, I mean wildly. It has shifted my entire understanding of the spiritual life. By far, it has become one of my favorite metaphors for the Christian faith and the spiritual life.

    S.3 Episode 35: Kicked in the Face with a Tap Shoe

    I once got kicked in the face with a tap shoe. I had a mustache at the time, so I probably deserved it. Thinking about that experience, I'm reminded how slowing down and being aware is the beginning of the spiritual life. And, you're less likely to get hurt.

    S.3 Episode 34: Rehab Relevance

    Some people seem to think the best way to be relevant is to strip away the stuff that actually is relevant. Sometimes, though, you need to restore it instead.

Love Nathan’s perspective

This is a very inspiring podcast. The perspective Nathan brings helps me to see the world in a more positive way. The world seems very negative right now and finding small positive nuggets is like finding gold. Keep up the great work Nathan.

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!
