    What You Need This Summer

    What You Need This Summer

    Summer is the ideal time for evening walks, family vacations, barbecues, and a slower pace of life. But when we forget to ask God what our souls need most, our desire for joy and rest can turn to disappointment and exhaustion. In the first half of this series, John, Stasi, Stacey, and Allen share how to take the pressure off, play the long game, and leave margin for the unexpected this summer.

    Gimme Shelter

    Gimme Shelter

    In the series conclusion, John, Alex, and Allen reveal how God alone is our refuge. We're meant to live within the safety of God, drawing our nourishment from our union with him. Not only believing in God, but living within him. Yet the world constantly pulls us out of this habitat while conditioning us to stay lost. So how do we find our way home? The life of the ordinary mystic will help us get back.
    Show Notes: In this podcast, John references the books Every Moment Holy (Douglas Kaine McKelvey) and Waiting on God (Andrew Murray) as well as author Evelyn Underhill.

    Ordinary Mystics

    Ordinary Mystics

    Being a Christian mystic was never meant to be something exceptional or rare. In Part 4 of the series, John, Alex, and Allen swap stories about what it looks like to live as ordinary, everyday mystics and how we're all meant to know God and the beauty of his kingdom in deep, profound ways. In this light, the Apostle John, St. Paul, and David were all mystics; certainly Adam and Eve were as well. Once we understand Christian mysticism as the daily experience of God as revealed in Jesus Christ, we can experience the normal life of an ordinary mystic.
    The book John referenced is A Wind in the House of Islam by David Garrison.
    The Prayer of Descent Podcast that John referenced can be found here.

    What Children & Mystics Know

    What Children & Mystics Know

    In Part 3 of the series, John, Alex, and Allen reveal how Jesus wants to rescue us from the barriers to fully experiencing God and his kingdom. Returning to the life we were created for isn't a complicated process. But it does require us to exchange our cynicism, skepticism, and pragmatism for the simple trust of a child.

    Weary, Skeptical Pragmatists

    Weary, Skeptical Pragmatists

    As the series continues, John, Alex, and Allen look at how our culture clings to the belief that practical information is the way to salvation. Yet as this information on the Internet is continually contradicted and undermined, we grow more fragile, vulnerable, and cynical. It has made weary skeptics of us all. Even in the area of faith, we try to make God and his kingdom 'practical' by stripping it of all wonder, mystery, and power. Thankfully, there is a way out of the madness.

There is one path to walk in the fullness of life. John and the team do extraordinary work every week to point you to the abundant life of Jesus. I am thankful for being formed by this work since 2001. And only feel like a beginner. Listen and be renewed.
