    When Narcissism Comes to Church (Chuck DeGroat)

    When Narcissism Comes to Church (Chuck DeGroat)

    We’ve seen the news stories and heard the rumors. Maybe we ourselves have been hurt by a narcissistic church leader. It’s easy to throw the term around and diagnose others from afar—but what is narcissism, really? And how does it infiltrate the church? That’s what we’ll talk about on today’s episode of the Unhurried Living podcast.

    A Framework for Change

    A Framework for Change

    Today we’re sharing a five part framework for change. We’ve been using this process in our own lives for years and it has kept us on track.

    Last Fall, our book What Does Your Soul Love? was published. It’s a book about necessary change--a book about how to cooperate with the transforming work of God in us and through us. What does it take to stay on this journey of change over our lifetime?

    We know that you’re the kind of person who is hungry to make good progress in your life and in your work. You aren’t willing to settle for the driven pace and frantic values of the culture around you. And we all know that the changes brought about by COVID-19 have added a whole new layer of challenges.

    Some of us have been able to lean into a more relaxed posture with the current guidance on staying at home and social distancing. Some of us are struggling with all this.

    We are here to help you live and work better with less hurry. So, this summer we are offering two group coaching opportunities that we believe are going to help you navigate this season in which we find ourselves.

    We share here the five-part framework we’ll use in these groups. It’s a framework that you can use in any situation needing change in your life.

    This Too Shall Last: Finding Grace When Suffering Lingers (KJ Ramsey)

    This Too Shall Last: Finding Grace When Suffering Lingers (KJ Ramsey)

    Many of us treat suffering like a problem to fix. Simply put, we’d rather not suffer at all, but if we do, we prefer it to be short. But what if our pain or suffering linger? What if it doesn’t go away quickly or at all? We may wonder if God sees us or if we’ve somehow failed God. We may question God’s very nature. If God loves us, why does he allow us to hurt?

    Today, Gem is talking with KJ Ramsey who has suffered with pain every day for the last 11 years. And she has much to say about the presence and love of God in the midst of that pain. Welcome to the Unhurried Living Podcast.

    Peace is a Who, Not a What

    Peace is a Who, Not a What

    The radical changes to our lives and our work continue as we stay home and distance ourselves to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We don’t know how this has impacted your emotions, but we’ve wrestled with anxious thoughts and feelings many times since our stay-at-home orders began in mid-March.

    On Sunday after Easter, Alan spoke for our online church service on the theme of peace. We needed it then, and we need it now. The good news of Jesus brings us peace in these uncertain times.

    Movies are Prayers (Josh Larsen)

    Movies are Prayers (Josh Larsen)

    According to our guest, Josh Larsen, “Films and faith have been intertwined in my head since childhood. As a practicing film critic, I hope to encourage other Christians in a nuanced, aesthetically focused, and theologically rooted exploration of the art of cinema.”

    Movies Are Prayers explores how modes of prayer—praise, confession, lament—are modeled by all types of films. In this fashion, Josh’s book illuminates the richness of both cinema and prayer.

    Welcome to the Unhurried Living Podcast, with guest, Josh Larsen.

Beautiful, timeless truths offered kindly.

I have grown to have a tremendous appreciation this podcast. Were this a movie, some might call it understated. Alan’s style of relating enables unhurried living to feel more like an accessible way of life rather than yet another To Do List. I’m grateful for the gentle strength of his presence and find it a welcome respite from the big intrusive egos that often dominate podcasts in this harried, hurried world gone mad of ours. Heartily recommend. Melodie A. ~ Indianapolis, IN
