Every seven days we gather at a place called "church"
but how are we living as The Church the other six?


Being Green

Episode 163. Wednesday June 24, 2015.

Being Neighborly

Episode 160. Wednesday April 29, 2015.
We use all kinds of highfalutin words like "missional," but your grandma just called it "being neighborly." This week we get back to the lost art of being a good neighbor as the quintessence (there's a highfalutin word for you) of Living the Six.

Religious Freedom

Episode 159. Wednesday April 15, 2015.
In the last few weeks "religious freedom" has become a topic of debate from state capitals to your uncle's facebook page. Of course freedom is a good thing, but what should a Christian do with their freedom, really? And is refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple the best way to take a stand for our faith?

Is Theology Your Idolatry?

Episode 158. Wednesday March 25, 2015.
It's hard to believe that our pursuit of God could lead us away from God but the truth is, that happens all the time. Not because God is elusive but because too easily our pursuit of him becomes misdirected, or worse, becomes an end in itself. This week we'll ask, "Is theology your idolatry?"

Episode 157. Wednesday March 3, 2015.
We all make mistakes, that's why some company made billions off of White-Out, but still no one likes to have their mistakes pointed out by others. So when you're Living the Six and you see issues in a person's life, what do you do? Do you address them? Do you turn a blind eye?

Benefit of the Doubt

Episode 154. Wednesday January 28, 2015.
"You fool me once, shame on you. You fool me twice, shame on me." No one wants to be the fool, but how far should Christians go in giving other people the benefit of the doubt? A worthy discussion of this superbowl weekend as the Cheating Patriots take on the Saintly Seahawks...no really, we're not biased.
