There are a growing number of people who have given up on church, hit a wall in their faith, or been left with lingering question regarding the Christian tradition which was passed down to them. But they're not ready to entirely walk away from God, spirituality, or faith — if anything, they believe faith is what grounds us and helps us to make a difference in our shared world.
Maybe this is your story.
We started this podcast to elevate voices who are re-imagining faith.

23: Spiritual Direction w/ Lacy Clark Ellman of A Sacred Journey
In episode 23, we sit down with Lacy Clark Ellman of A Sacred Journey to talk about the practice of spiritual direction. Spiritual direction is an ancient practice which helps us explore the spiritual aspect of being human. A spiritual director helps us pay attention and notice the movement of God in our lives. Lacy shares her story with us while talking about the history of spiritual direction and the resurgence of this ancient practice today. We even do a mini spiritual direction session at the end of the episode to give you a taste! Lacy is a spiritual director, pilgrimage guide, artist and lives in Seattle, WA.

22: Parenting through Deconstruction w/ Kevin Neuner of Spark Church
In episode 22, we talk with our returning guest, Kevin Neuner from Spark Church, about parenting through deconstruction. It can be hard to talk about God, spirituality, and church as you’re reimagining or reconstructing your faith. We talk about being a sojourner alongside your kids rather than prescribing “right beliefs” and how children can be a valuable sage in our journey. Kevin draws on decades of studying the Rabbinic traditions and way of Jesus to invite us to a new posture for parenting.

In episode 21, we continue with part 2 of our conversation with Ryan Meeks of Eastlake Church in Seattle, WA. We pick up where we left off and continue talking about an interfaith posture, not having the exclusive truth and Ryan's motto — life is a gift and love is the point. This episode is bound to provoke you, introduce you to new ways of thinking and ultimately open you up to a more loving and inclusive posture. Learn more about Ryan at: www.eastlakecc.com
