let god die podcast

By Let god die
Let god die is a weekly podcast serving as a vehicle to open up conversations and hear about what God's done in people's lives. We see everyone's story as the death of their former perceptions of God; and we believe that there is great value in sharing those experiences.

107 - Calvin and Josh - our stories are in process
We were tagged by John LeBoeuf from the Creative Coping podcast. He references Youngman Brown's show notes from Your Creative Push podcast - he says, "We are going explore the fact that your story doesn’t have to reach a completion for you to start sharing it. You simply have to share what’s inside of you. The closer you can get to that message, the better it will be…not necessarily in quality, but in the weight that it carries for you and for others." We're tagging Chris and Courtney from Uncomfortably Yours to do the same - share your story as it is right now - with the incomplete unresolved pieces.  past let god die episodes - letgoddie.com Creative Coping podcast - anchor.fm/creativecopingpod/ Uncomfortably Yours podcast -podcasts.apple.com/ph/podcast/uncomfortably-yours/id1455532114
