Today we talk about Philip the Evangelist and how sometimes it’s ok do something different.
Revelation 14:4, “These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.” But where he goes is a life of service to God and to others. Are you willing to follow him there?
We can battle pride by boasting - but not in ourselves. (Unless you are Ron Swanson.)
Today we consider the “holy kiss” passages and what they might mean for us today. Also the Full House gif (lol) reminds me of my daughters who teach me that true affection has a physical component.
Today we think about Galatians 3:26-27 (NOTE: I accidentally said 2 in the podcast) and how baptism is like putting on Birkenstocks with socks.
I tackle a misunderstanding about what God wants us to do according to passages about Hosea 6:6 and Micah 6:8. Does God want us to be kind or does he want us to be faithful? (Though God probably wants us to be kind too.)
Put down your phone, read a book, have a face-to-face conversation, pray for a lost cause. In this way we practice resistance against the tyranny of right now and build the virtue of patience.

There is no such thing as a “Daniel fast,” unless that fast in some way resists the cultural pressure to be “of the world.” Today we consider how
We consider how Christians view getting old, hopefully like the guy below.
Today we take a few lessons from muscle memory to think about how we can make prayer as natural and unforgettable as riding a bike. So with intentionality and effort we can be the Arnold’s of prayer.
We continue thinking about how Jesus prayed. I noticed that there are a lot of emotion words used in relationship with Jesus and prayer. Perhaps our words matter less than our "heart" when it comes to prayer.
Want to pray like Jesus? Start by praying for others.
Today we consider the strange book of Song of Solomon, which breaks up the Bible with a reminder to enjoy life.
We think about the Wisdom Literature today, and about how it teaches us that Christians take heed to good advice. So listen to good advice, especially from the Bible or Robocop.
Are Christians rebels? Are Christians to trust themselves? If not who or what do we trust? (Also isn't that gif hilarious?)
Sometimes I think the Heavens must look at me like that puppy. Also the puppy is cute, which made me feel better about the conviction I feel as I post this podcast. My friends it is a high calling to which we have been called and empowered. We must strive toward holiness, so don't forget to blush.
Shout out to Jordan Ickes and his sermon found here: http://www.etnachurch.com/sermons-3/
Today we consider the Christian virtue of chill by realizing that we live in a long line of chaotic times, and thus we don't panic - especially when everyone else is. To quote Jesus (loosely), "Who cares, follow me." (John 21:22)
Special guest Tommy Moehlman shares some thoughts about whether or not the "good news/ gospel" is appropriately titled. Though we translate the word Jesus uses as "good news", is it good for everyone?
What about civility? How does the Christian speak and act in a time of outrage and hostility? Meditating on 1 Timothy 2:2 and the meaning of a "dignified life." (Maybe something like the gif below?)
