Pulpit Aside

Pulpit Aside

By Jessie Still & Coye Bouyer

In a social media age, when everyone is trying to boost their platform and preach their message; two pastors come together to put the pulpit aside and have some uncommon exchanges; some considerate conversations about cultural topics from a Biblical worldview.

We’re not just trying to boost likes, comments, shares and follows. We’re trying to find some sanity, some clarity, and some unity in the midst of our diversity, to offer some hope in a culture steeped in division, confusion, and toxicity. Come along with us, as we put the pulpit aside.

The Holy Spirit & the Mystery of God
The Holy Spirit & the Mystery of God
How does the "third member" of the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), God Himself, seem to stir up so much confusion and even division among different believers in the Church?  Setting aside doctrinal statements and preaching points, we take some time to discuss experiences and Scripture in an authentic way. Is Holy Spirit like a creepy uncle or our comforting friend? Come along as we push the pulpit aside.  Credits: Music by Caleb Casteneda & Jessie Still Audio/Video: Matt Rider & Rebecca Nobles Graphics: Benjamin Wells Contact us: PulpitAside@gmail.com Follow us on Instagram: @PulpitAside - https://www.instagram.com/pulpitaside/ Follow us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOi1dDSGUKuVxeytIUGcuBw

Let's talk about it, as we push the pulpit aside.  Credits: Music by Caleb Casteneda & Jessie Still Audio/Video: Matt Rider & Rebecca Nobles Graphics: Benjamin Wells Contact us: PulpitAside@gmail.com Follow us on Instagram: @PulpitAside - https://www.instagram.com/pulpitaside/ Follow us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOi1dDSGUKuVxeytIUGcuBw

Deconstruction & Church Hurt (Part 2)
When we jumped in the deep end on our last episode, we didn't realize how much there was to tread through as we navigated through the waters of faith deconstruction and church hurt.

Deconstruction & Church Hurt (Part 1)
We're here to talk about the things others aren't talking about, or people are more prone to "preach" about/against, with out having a real conversation, so why not jump in on the deep end??  When we asked our friends what they'd love for us to address, faith deconstruction and church hurt were the TOP topic, so here we are. Faith deconstruction: What is it? How should we respond? "Church hurt"- We all got it. What do we do with it? This episode goes hard!

The Lost Art of Conversation
The Lost Art of Conversation
Digital communication has revolutionized our society. We've gained so much! But, we seem to have lost the intricacies of inter-personal communication. Jessie & Coye push the pulpit aside to talk about how we can cultivate this essential skill in our lives, and bridge the cultural divides of our day.  Credits: Music by Caleb Casteneda & Jessie Still Audio/Video: Matt Rider & Rebecca Nobles Graphics: Benjamin Wells Contact us: PulpitAside@gmail.com Follow us on Instagram: @PulpitAside - https://www.instagram.com/pulpitaside/ Follow us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOi1dDSGUKuVxeytIUGcuBw
