The Techie and the Cowboy

By The Techie and The Cowboy
Hi, I'm Alastair Hunte, aka “The Techie”, together with T.W. Lawrence, aka “The Cowboy”. We’re just a couple of average guys on a journey to explore faith & the Spirit. Throughout this journey we came to see the need for a place to discuss faith-based topics related to the things that we face such as: things that challenge, things that empower, & most of all things that just confuse us. However, we wanted to talk about them in a thoughtful, nonthreatening way. We invite you to join us on each podcast as we explore our own stories, thoughts, & stories shared with us by others on their journey.

The episode includes discussion around a recent personal example of profiling and harassment, but more importantly, this episode discusses four steps to begin conversations between ourselves and other races, cultures, and groups that we don't understand.

Episode 15 - You Don't Give Your Life to Jesus
T.W. Lawrence, also known as "The Cowboy," was at a conference hosted by his church when he heard a phrase in a workshop that really challenged his traditional way of thinking.  The guest speaker was Pastor Larry Ragan from CULTURELink, Inc. He was talking about what people typically say when they are lost, and God is pursuing them.  A common statement that you hear about the transition from someone's old lifestyle to one of following Jesus (or to transitioning to a more Godly way of living) is, "...and then I gave my life to Christ."  Larry challenged this statement by saying, "The real question for Christianity is not, 'When did you give your LIFE to Christ, but instead - when did you give your DEATH to Christ?'" We were so intrigued by this standard deviation from a phrase that we often hear that we agreed to do a podcast episode on it.  However, once T.W. & Alastair started exploring the topic - we realized that we were a little in over our heads.  So, T.W. took it once step further and invited Larry on as a guest speaker!  We are excited that our listeners can hear more about this concept directly from Larry himself.   Listen in, send us your comments on Facebook & IG, but most importantly - SUBSCRIBE!   http://www.thetechieandthecowboy.com   Have questions?  Reach out to Larry Ragan via his company CULTURELink, Inc on: Facebook https://www.facebook.com/culturelinkinc Twitter: https://twitter.com/culturelinkinc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/culturelinkinc/

Episode 14 - Why Doesn't God Answer Every Prayer
The Techie and the Cowboy were chatting one day about how we pray, and the subject of "answers to prayers" came up.  They quickly came to the conclusion that sometimes we think that God isn't answering.  Instead, it's just that we either aren't listening or the answer is not what we want to hear.   Join us as we talk about how God actually answers EVERY prayer!

Episode 13 - Too Much Confidence and You Will Get Thrown
Have you ever had a time in your life where you were doing so well - that you began to take ALL the credit?  Confidence in our own abilities can be a good thing, but when you forget the nothing is possible without GOD...you start moving into dangerous territory.   Does God have a way of leveling the playing field when we get TOO confident?   In episode 13, TW and Alastair talk about this exact topic.  Using TW's experience from being an ordained Chaplain for the Cowboys for Christ organization, he talks about seeing examples of this at the different rodeos that he attends.

Why So Many Colors?", the Techie and the Cowboy discuss these parallels and explore what they teach us about how to handle situations in our day-to-day life.

It's amazing how much what other people think influence our lives.

How do we overcome the stigma set by our parents?
