November 16, 2022 Exile on Main Street
In this week's Gathering, we looked at Babylon not just as a specific kingdom but as a repeating archetype of kingdom power. That sparked plenty of questions for our JourneyNOW roundtable panel of Mike Erre, Suzie Lind, Tim Timmons and Kevin Dixon. Can we apply that archetype to our own world and cultures? And, how do we live in exile in those cultures as people who are centered on Jesus? Plus: Bad theories on the secrets of Suzie's success; Kevin brings back Ocean Pacific style; Mike's best quality is just not being so bad; and Tim tries to remember where he is. - - - You can go deeper with us in our study of Revelation with the books on Journey's specially curated Amazon book list for the series.

October 20, 2022 A Lamb Who Conquers?
This week, teaching pastor Mike Erre challenged us to consider the Revelation 5 image of a conquering lion who looks like a slaughtered lamb. Our listeners asked questions on what that looks like in their own lives. What does it mean to live in resurrection, to carry a cross or to be part of an army that's victorious through sacrifice? Suzie Lind, Kevin Dixon and Tim Timmons join the table to discuss.

October 6, 2022 Comfortably Warm
On Sunday, we discussed the letter to the church at Laodicaea (Rev. 3:14), a wealthy and comfortable church with little need for God and an apparently tepid municipal water supply. This week's Journey NOW panel—Tim Timmons, Suzie Lind, Mike Erre and host Kevin Dixon—think more about their experiences resisting the impulse to live at the comfortable center of their own lives. How do individuals and Christian communities in our affluent culture keep their focus on God and live lives that are refreshing (like cold water) or therapeutic (hot water)?

At our Sunday Gathering, Suzie Lind put our "Unbound" series' new approach to the Bible to work. She challenged us to re-experience the story of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11) as a story about Jesus instead of through the lenses of our own experiences, culture and bias. Mike Erre and Tim Timmons join her at this week's Journey NOW table to continue the conversation as a listener asks what Jesus might have written in the dust to persuade the accusers to drop their stones and walk away.

This week's JourneyNOW crew—Mike Erre, Suzie Lind, Kevin Dixon and Tim Timmons--follows up on Sunday's "Unbound" series teaching by exploring on a listener question: "Don't we use the Bible to become more Christ-like individually in order to help the community? How do we do that in context?"  Can the Bible apply to us on our own, or do we only make sense as Jesus followers together? And, if that's true, what does that even look like?

The Journey NOW crew continues to explore questions from our Sunday "Unbound" series. We have been learning about the Bible as the result of a partnership between God and humanity. This week, Mike Erre and Suzie Lind join host Kevin Dixon (with a special guest appearance by Seth Erre) to consider the ideas that the Bible is authoritative or inerrant. Where did the text of our Bible actually come from? And how can we learn to read the Bible through the person of Jesus? Have a question or comment of your own?

On Sunday, we began a new "Unbound" series: We’re learning to appreciate the Bible, not as a single, divinely received book, but as a library of works produced through divine and human partnership. Teaching pastor Mike Erre, student pastor Rob Gonzales, and care pastor Sam Barnhart join the podcast to discuss some questions they received afterwards about behaviors that can result from misunderstanding the Bible. Plus, this week's passing of 1970s icon Olivia Newton John inspires a wave of nostalgia and Boomer trivia from host and Journey lead pastor Kevin Dixon.  If you’re hopelessly devoted to this podcast, do us a favor: Leave a review, share us on social media and let a friend know that each week’s Journey Now is the one that you want.

Recently, we asked people at our Sunday gathering to consider the question: What are we willing to stop being Christian for? What fears or causes are so important to you that you would resort to pressure, manipulation, shaming and judgement?

This week, a question about love and shame leads them into a discussion of how different Jesus' idea of love is from our common, pop-cultural understanding. So, how can we rid ourselves of cultural biases and hear His message as it was intended? Got comments or questions? Text us at (615) 861-9503 or email journey@journeytn.com and join the conversation.  This season’s conversations are inspired by the book, "Upside Down Kingdom," by Donald Kraybill, as well as the discussions at our current Sunday gatherings. If you're curious to learn more, join us online or live in Brentwood, Tenn. each week at 9am and 11am.

March 17, 2022 By God
What does it mean when Jesus cautions us in his "Upside Down Kingdom" not to attach God's name to empty things (Matthew 5:33-37). As we learned in Sunday's Gathering, it's easy--and tempting--to invoke God when express our own opinions and desires. Phrases like "I have a word for you," "God told me" and "we are being led" can become tools of religious power and manipulation. Where does that leave us, though, when we really do have visions and hear God's voice? Mike Erre, Suzie Lind and Tim Timmons share some of their own experiences as they explore these questions.

Creative, funny and surprisingly deep, the movie explores some of life’s biggest questions: What is a soul, and where does it come from? What’s the meaning of life and the definition of a successful one? What happens before we’re born and after we die? And, the toughest question of them all: Is it really worth it to subscribe to yet another streaming app? Pastors Kevin Dixon, Mike Erre and Suzie Lind join Grant Opperman for a little soul searching.

Text us at (615) 861-9503 and join the conversation. Notes from today's conversation: 10 Principles of Talking to Friends, Family Members, Other Christians 1. Be clear about your goal - and decide whether it is noble and achievable. Is it to change a mind? Express your anger? Help the oppressed? Go on record? Some goals are better than others. State your goal clearly and in words in your mind before you decide to engage. 2. It’s okay not to talk - sometimes this is the wise decision. The idea that it is cowardly not to always engage is false and unwise. 3. Choose relationship over “rightness” - 80% of Americans say they have “very few or no friends" who are different from them politically. We will only get more polarized and divided if we allow ourselves to cut off those who think differently than we do. 4. Don’t make it personal - if you decide to engage, use "I" statements more than "You" statements. ("I was wondering about...," "I was concerned about...," or "Help me understand...," not "You are racist," "You hate this country," etc.) 5. Talk in person, not over social media - social media debates go nowhere good. Don't use your platforms to engage in angry or contentious debates. 6. Speak to the deeper issue - usually fear and safety (STUDY: Genie study (300 adults) - imagine: 1/2 group genie - able to fly; 1/2 group genie - completely safe, invulnerable to harm. "Fly" group - no change in conservative/liberal divide; conservatives endorsed more conservative issues, resistant to social change; "Invulnerable" group -  social attitudes (toward women, gays, minorities, immigrants) shifted, became more open to social change); however, sometimes it can be uglier - collective narcissism 7. Think win/win - what do they want, what do you want? Is there common ground to be found? Can the discussion be framed in a way that looks at the good things each party wants? This doesn't mean you have to agree that all attitudes or positions are the same or equally right, but it can mean that there might be underlying desires that are good and noble and can be spoken to in the interaction. 8. Be genuinely curious about the other person - listen well, have empathy; what led them here? (their context, their echo chamber, their own psychology) 9. Realize people can be biased without knowing it -  Implicit Association Test, Dunning-Kruger effect, Broken Patterns research. Because of this, they may be truly upset and angry at the suggestion they hold biased attitudes because this is not how they view themselves. 10. Stick up for the oppressed - if you need criteria about when you should speak or act, this is it, but do it strategically (don't just be the person who posts the angry screed on social media or angrily cuts off disagreeing family members, and so on). Use the other principles to enter into conversation or engagement if their attitudes or actions can have a harmful effect on the powerless. Recommended Books: White Too Long - Robert P. Jones - a must-read for all Christians about the church's long history of complicity in racism in the U.S. The Color of Compromise & How to Fight Racism - both books by Jemar Tisby are vital reading. How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie - a timeless book on the strategy and skill of truly engaging people and building relationships. Don't Label Me: An Incredible Conversation for Divided Times - Irshad Manji - lays out a mindset about how to enter into these relationships and interactions. Not from a Christian perspective, but with some deep wisdom that is helpful.

January 6, 2021 Body And Soul
Disney / Pixar’s new animated film, “Soul,” debuted on Christmas Day to huge acclaim (95% on the Tomatometer) and big streaming numbers. Creative, funny and surprisingly deep, the movie explores some of life’s biggest questions: What is a soul, and where does it come from? What’s the meaning of life and the definition of a successful one? What happens before we’re born and after we die? And, the toughest question of them all: Is it really worth it to subscribe to yet another streaming app? Pastors Kevin Dixon, Mike Erre and Suzie Lind join Grant Opperman for a little soul searching. To go deeper with this subject, we recommend The Bible Project's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_igCcWAMAM
