  • 019. An Interview with Don Coleman: "Embrace the Death ... There is a Resurrection!"

    Jan 12 2022

    Don and I think we might have met in the 1990s at Paulea's house, but we aren't sure.   We were all pursuing House Church models and discipleship multiplication.  The awesome thing is that we have maintained the same values for 30 years.

    I was reintroduced to Don a year and a half ago, when I moved to Richmond, VA.  We have spent some hours together sitting on his porch, and some drinking coffee at my house.  Every time we get together we laugh and touch deep things in God.  I love his spirituality, focus on Jesus and his love for his city!

    Don has connections with a number of different segments of the Body of Christ in Richmond and throughout the state and beyond.  I am always drawn to folks who connect broadly.

    In this podcast, Paulea Mooney-McCoy, Don Coleman, and I discuss some of the following topics:

    • The importance of pursuing spiritual ideals
    • Spiritual Fathering
    • The healing power of simple faith
    • The experience of hardship and brokenness in the Church
    • The reality that even though Jesus was perfect - everything around Him was often a mess ... and what that means for us and our faith
    • When you don't know what to do ... when you really don't know what to do ... build an altar and go to God

    This is a little longer than some of my podcasts ... but my o my, we connect with God at points along the way!

  • 018. Enjoy Your Life ... You Are NOT Alone!

    Dec 22 2021

    Do you ever find it hard to relax ... and breathe deeply ... down in your soul?

    Some people have a difficult time relaxing because their circumstances are strangling them.

    Some people have trouble relaxing before God ... they feel nervous and self-conscious when they come to Him.

    Some feel anxious with others ... they continually find themselves posing and posturing to be what they think will be pleasing to them.

    Some have a hard time relaxing - even with themselves.  They find it hard to be themself with themself.  (When was the last time you were by yourself without any input for more than 10-20 minutes?)

    It could be that you are having difficulty relaxing and breathing because you have not taken hold of a good and functional Gospel.  The Good News of God is too good to leave us tightly and anxiously wound up!

    In this Podcast I discuss truths and principles (and really, the Gospel) that I found in the book, With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God, by Skye Jethani (2011).

    We look at the false gospels of living:
    Under God - Over God - From God - For God

    ... and the TRUE GOSPEL of living With God!

    Check it out ... this could TRANSFORM your life and faith, as it has mine.

  • 017. An Interview with Caleb McCoy: "A Time for Opportunity Not for Reaction"

    Dec 14 2021

    I have known Caleb McCoy's family for 40 years.  I have known Caleb for 4.  The first time I spoke with him, I could sense God's anointing on his life.  He carries something of God's presence and favor.

    When I've seen him sing - or listened to his music, I have sensed a depth and forthrightness that is real and valuable.

    • Caleb has a vision to embrace the tensions of our day - and to press into them, rather than just run from them or react to them.  
    • He values diversity and wants to amplify the voices and messages of those who are not traditionally given a platform - or an ear.
    • He has a heart for those who struggle with feeling lonely and/or left out.

    In this podcast, we discuss urban Christian culture vs, colonized Christian culture, exploring new ways of thinking, an abundance mentality vs. one of scarcity, and the importance of collaboration.

    Amidst the busyness and pressures of urban living, Caleb has found silence and contemplation to be restorative and grounding.  Sometimes you just have to turn off the music and the input.

    Check it out!
