    #013 - COVID-19 and the Church with Reagan Schrock

    A week ago, I sat down with Reagan Schrock and discussed what churches are doing, and can be doing, during a crisis like COVID-19. He's been working with Anabaptist COVID-19 Response in supplying families and healthcare workers in NYC with food and essential items they need. We also talk a bit about conspiracy theories and better ways to spend our time than watching Netflix or arguing on social media. Take a listen!Anabaptist COVID-19 Response Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/anabaptistcovidresponse/

    #012 - Why Conversations on Racism Matter (with Keeshon Washington)

    #012 - Why Conversations on Racism Matter (with Keeshon Washington)

    This week, I connected again with my friend Keeshon Washington to tackle the subject of racism. Well, we didn't really tackle it... there's so much to this conversation that we couldn't get to in just a couple of hours. But we addressed why we need to have conversations about racism, why we should talk with friends of color about their experiences, what racism even means, and how parents who adopt children of color should parent their kids.

    #010 - What is a Menno to do when there are no healthy Menno churches to attend?

    #010 - What is a Menno to do when there are no healthy Menno churches to attend?

    In this episode, I respond to three questions my patrons have submitted: (1) What is keeping you engaged in the conservative Menno vision/mission? (2) What is a Menno to do when there are no healthy Menno churches to attend? (3) Do all people who attend a church need to hold to the same doctrinal beliefs (outside credal beliefs)?

Keep it up

Hey Asher, I really enjoy listening to your podcast. You've been asking for honest reviews, and the hardest part was getting here. I personally use Android, and there's no way to review on itunes from Android. So I made a special trip here with a mac to give a thumbs up. :) I love your passion for the Church. It's evident in the people you seek out to interview, and the topics you discuss. Stay strong, and Press on!

Good content, but too long

I have enjoyed the unscripted discussions of real issues that we face. The problem is that these podcasts are typically over an hour, which is well past the length of my commute and attention span. I have started many of these podcasts, but since they took longer than my 30 minute drive, I never finished them.

Seriously, if you could keep these discussions <30-45 minutes and to the point, I (and I think many others) would be able to fit these podcasts into our schedules.

Five Stars

"Critics love it!" "It’s sensational!" "Riveting!"
"Compelling and thoughtful." "You will not regret listening to this podcast!"All these things have been said about the Unfeigned Christianity podcast. The host Asher Witmer is a master in the art of communication and will leave you with bated breath waiting for the next episode. His explorations of deep and sometimes controversial theology will leave you at the edge of your seat.

Seriously though,love the podcast! Would like to see a Joe Rogan style podcast that’s three hours or so in length. 😁
