Too often people struggle with real battles of the mind and get turned away with a prayer and good "God Bless."

Last week 9 people died in a tragic helicopter crash. The world lost one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Kobe Bryant was known for many things, especially his “Black Mamba” alter ego. Mamba Mentality says “kill everything.” How can this be applied in faith?
Going to church can be an amazing experience! You leave feeling so charged and changed for the better. And then, Monday happens. You head home on a Monday evening after work to unwind from a long day. Where’s that inspirational message? Where does Jesus fit in among the “real life” stuff that goes on? Is Jesus just for Sunday’s? Is Worship just a slow song at church?
My name is Christal Luster and I’m the host of living room worship! This podcast was born out of a need to find an intersection between real life and real relationship with Christ. The living room is often the room that sees us in raw form. We laugh, we cry, we argue, we eat, we Netflix and chill in the living room. What would it look like if we invited Christ to be involved in our real lives outside of the church walls?
Join me on Mondays at 5pm to discuss different facets of life and where Jesus fits in with it all. Whether Jesus is your homeboy or someone you used to know, we’re gonna take it back to the basics on an approachable and non-religious way and figure out what Worship looks like after Sunday service.
Season 2 has some special guests coming to bring their thoughts on entrepreneurship, dating, politics and more and how we prioritize faith in the midst of it. Grab your spot on the couch and let’s talk about it! See you soon.
For a lot of people, the holiday season is usually synonymous with intense and increased stress. But why? Isn’t it supposed to be a time of celebration and reflection? Could we be adding this stress to ourselves unnecessarily? Let’s talk about practical ways to eliminate holiday stress. This season finale features my good friend Sam Hamstra, pastor of CLC Hammond.
Holidays can be a real pain when people are dying and having hardships. What do you do when the cheerful music and twinkling lights make you want to just punch someone in the face? Let’s talk about it in this brief (bonus) episode.
Tithing is usually a sore spot for most believers and unbelievers, especially around the holidays (sure would be easier if Santa did magically make gifts appear, huh? Lol). So where does this whole tithing thing fit in with our pursuit of Jesus in everyday life? Does God really want our money? What does tithing have to do with worship and relationship? Let’s talk about it.
Conflict is not an easy thing to deal with. It’s exhausting being offended all the time, and it’s embarrassing being the constant offender. Why should we resolve conflict? How can we pursue Jesus in the middle of conflict? Let’s talk it out.
I'm joined by the host of "I've Got Something To Say" Serena Boyd! We are wrapping up the the "Righteous & Ratchet" talk, discussing how the meaning of ratchetness has changed over time, the balance of the two concepts and the beauty of the wildness in being ratchet.
Many people struggle with living in a posture of worship and not feeling like they can't be themselves....human and sometimes (or all the time ratchet). Is it possible to love Jesus and listen to hip hop? If you live in worship, are you allowed to have a busy lifestyle or are you expected to lay on the floor praying day and night? Join me and Pastor, entrepreneur, husband and father Dezimon Alicea for part one of the discussion on Righteous & Ratchet.

What in the world are we doing worshipping in the living room? It's all about understanding what worship is and being in a completely comfortable, vulnerable, and real place where we can encounter God's presence in the midst of everything going on in our lives. Join me in my living room and let's talk it out.
