207 - What is the "gospel" anyway?
Sometimes it is really hard to not jump into the outrage of the week. Every once in a while I am actually able to hold back and let it marinate a bit. After the release of the John MacArthur "gospel" statement last week and letting it sit for a minute, I realized some things about the nature of the gospel. So, take a few minutes and give it a listen.

205 - Hospitality
Jesus talks about loving your neighbor as yourself. So how do we actually do it? I think, at the heart, it's all about hospitality.

203 - Bored to Death
We as a society get bored. We might not call it that, but the reality is that we do. Why? What is with the endless scrolling of social media and the endless watching of Netflix?

202 - Control Freak
The world within which we live is chaotic. It's crazy. We try really hard to control it and everything around us. Yet, doing so is like nailing jello to the wall. Are you a control freak? I am. But there is another way.

103 - Where is God?
Over the last two years there has been child after child dying. They been in accidents and they have taken their own lives. Our community is experiencing a weight of sorrow and grief that is almost overwhelming. In the midst of tragedy where is God? The answers that "I know" aren't helpful. They are trite. So, I am working out my own stuff in the moment. Maybe this will be helpful. Maybe it won't be. Either way, it's all I got.

102 - Church In The Living Room
When people find out I'm a pastor they always ask about "my" church. I always start by saying, "It's a little weird..." When you start out that way, the following conversation is always fun. We are a little different in what we're doing with the Antioch Movement. So, this podcast is a bit about that. Leave a comment, rating, and share this episode with folks. Thanks for listening!
