    Women in Ministry

    Women in Ministry

    We're closing out Season 1 of We Digress with Joi and Jess with a bang! It's time to talk about women in ministry. The struggles, challenges, and joys of over 20 years of being in the trenches. And, because it's Joi and Jess, there's a few detours along the way.

    We want to apologize for the audio quality in this week's episode. There was an issue with microphones that we've done our best to correct, but Jess' audio is a little blown out despite our best efforts.

    Sex, Love, Relationships, and Other Stuff

    Sex, Love, Relationships, and Other Stuff

    What do situationships, James the Gemologist, rejection, body image issues, and 3,000 giggling 12-year-old girls have in common? They're all on this week's episode. Joi and Jess discuss singleness, marriage, dating, sex outside of marriage, the hierarchy of Christian dating apps, and that awful macaroni and cheese "recipe" that's going around on the internet, so brace yourselves: we digress.

    Influence and Other Stuff

    What's that line from Spider-Man? "With great power comes great responsibility?" In this week's episode, Joi and Jess talk about the dangers of putting our leaders on pedestals, what happens when they fall, and how to create a culture that keeps spiritual influencers on the Safe and Narrow. Also, Jess busts out her News Anchor voice and Joi sings one of the most well-known theme songs in television history.

    Faith Over Fear and Other Stuff

    Oooo....this one gets spicy, guys.
