Janet Davis – episode 283

I am back on the podcast after my injury! And Janet Davis is the perfect guest to return with. Her book Sacred Healing has been a beautiful companion during these ongoing days of recovery. We talk about how pain and loss is inevitable in life but the deeper question and invitation is how do we deal with those things? What is God inviting us into as we walk through a season or a lifetime of pain and loss?

I think you will enjoy this conversation on many levels!

Pete Scazzero-episode 276

 

Pete Scazzero says that the global church is facing a discipleship crisis. He posits that our churches are stuck in a culture of shallow discipleship that severely undermines our ministry impact.

On this episode of Faith Conversations, Pete joins me to talk about what Emotionally Healthy Discipleship looks like and how we can move from shallow Christianity to deep transformation. This is one of those messages that is critical for the church to press forward in a healthy way. Listen and share if you are so inclined!

Lynda MacGibbon-episode 274

What does it look like to really love your neighbor? To care for your neighborhood in such a way that strangers become friends? Lynda MacGibbon joins me on the podcast this week to talk about how strangers in her life became a community. She wrote My Vertical Neighborhood which is really a memoir that tells the story of the community that took shape as neighbors said yes to weekly dinners, a writing group, and other opportunities to be together. It’s about the everyday risk of reaching out with love to those around us.  I think you’ll be fascinated by this conversation and by Lynda’s life and choices and maybe even motivated to do the same in your your neighborhood!
