ForgettingWalls

ForgettingWalls

By Keith Wilson
We recognize that there are growing separations and conflicts between the "church" and the secular world. We exist to be a bridge between both groups. No matter where you come from, we are here to mend relationships between people on both sides of the church's walls. But we can't do it alone.

So, whether you are a Christian, Atheist, Buddhist, Black, White, Poor, Rich, or whatever label you live under, we realize that we all have doubts and questions. We want to meet somewhere on the fence to start erasing the walls that segregate, the traditions that enslave, and the stereotypes that kill.

Episode 31 - Religious Language and the Great Divide (feat. Tina Semmens)
In Episode 31, Keith W. and Keith H. are joined by Tina Semmens in studio in the place of Justin as he takes a week off. We talk some recommendations from music to podcast to art. We spend a little time getting to know Tina and her background, where she is going and her relationship with Keith W. She is a singer-songwriter, writer, wife, mom, and we continue but you will hear all about her. We get into our topic on religious language and how it divides us in the world. This topic has a relevant position in how we at ForgettingWalls are purposed and directed. We talk about how we take translated words to be the end all be all with the identifier with such concepts like God, Adam or man. The conversation gets a little deep and focuses on the divisive nature of how people hold to their definitions to be the only one and everyone else is wrong. Then, as we often do, we go off into left field and decide to talk about whatever we want. With Justin absent, Keith W. tries and fills the spot the best he can. We chat up naked barn stormer, the cat Boss, and a story about a real man duking it out with a shark. If you haven't go and give us a like or a follow, invite friends to the Facebook page, or please go and share your story.

Episode 30 - Multiple Perspectives on Christianity: Are We Really As Different As We Like to Believe?
In Episode 30, Keith W, Justin, and Keith H sit down to talk about some of their own personal beliefs. Is Justin really a super-liberal Christian? Is Keith H a hardcore conservative? Does Keith W have a weird mix of both? Are we really as different as each of us likes to think? Or do we really have more in common? Listen to find out! Also, the guys talk about a controversial tweet, how the church service is only a small part of the life of a Christian, and how miscommunication can often happen on social media (especially regarding theology and Twitter). This week, they also bring recommendations of music, TV shows, and podcasts.

Episode 29 - Multiethnic Megachurches (feat. Laura Veal from Transformation Church)
In Episode 29, Keith W, Justin, and Keith H sit down with the Laura Veal, the worship coordinator of Transformation Church, to talk about cultivating a multiethnic community. How does one even start? Does having a wide variety of people make leading worship raiser or more difficult? And what should churches be doing differently to reach more diverse groups? The guys (and girl) also continue some discussion on the gay marriage ruling, to which there is still contention. This is our most Christian lingo-filled podcast to date, so dive in with us as we explore these topics.

Episode 21 - Being Imperfectly Real
Yes, episode 21 is here and live. This week as we record the show we live stream it also. Justin is not with us this week and after you listen to the show, you will see why that was a bad idea. Skiler, Keith W., Keith H. and Graham talk about a couple of movies. They mainly focus on Jesus Camp and breakdown the insanity that pursues from over zealous children pastors. It takes us back to episode 18 about indoctrination. Also, the guys have a little too much fun with the live audience and tend to forget to stay on track. The topic this week deals with how imperfect people are, especially Christians. They cover a lot of scripture more than any other episode by far. Keith H. takes care of Justin’s Juicy Bits with a great sports story. Good thing Justin dipped out. So join us and give us some feed back wherever you would like to chat.
