In this podcast, Lloyd Clark, Jason’s dad, talks about his faith journey from behavior-focused religious striving into grace and the love of our Father; about waking up every morning in the revelation of being enough. With humor and authenticity, Lloyd talks about the finished work of the Cross, how Jesus fixed the problem of separation, and our invitation to awaken to our union.


“The whole sin conscious mindset has you waking up every morning ‘not enough.”’

“Everything we did and everything we built was out of insecurity because we didn’t know we were enough.”

“God never came to me with shame”

“When you’re not enough, everything you do is tainted with insecurity.”

“I know exactly what you’re going through, I know the pain. I have felt that betrayal.”

“If a kid can’t get it, it’s not the gospel.”

“Jesus fixed the problem of separation.”

    Oh yayyyyyyyyyyyyy! I’m listening right this second!

    • Jason Clark

      Haha, this one was especially fun!

  2. Tineke Ziemer

    Thank you for this very Canadian intro! haha

  3. Tineke Ziemer

    Okay, now after listening to this, I realize I might be considered a stalker! haha. No, this was so enjoyable you guys. As you know, I’ve been eagerly anticipating getting to hear from Lloyd because his articles are what God used to speak my love language and open my eyes to his true nature of Love. This was absolutely delightful to listen to. I hope you’ll do it again soon. Loved the story about the Clark Boys. Had a similar experience when someone punched my brother during a hockey game once. I was in the stands and I almost lept on the ice to beat him up. haha. In reality, that’s kind of how I feel when I see anyone attacking ya’ll on social media. I’m like, oh boy, do you wanna GO, people?! haha. Thankfully, Holy Spirit kicks in and I feel compassion for them. This was amazing, thank you so much, and HELLO!? A shout-out!! My day just got so much brighter. Fyi, I know my name is crazy. It’s Dutch, and it’s pronounced Tina-kuh.

    • Jason Clark

      Haha, it’s a great journey we get to be on together. Someday, we’re gonna get up to where you guys are and enjoy fellowship, the stories about hockey fights and the love of God, and the views!

      Yeah, that was a very Canadian intro 🙂 Oh, Canada, our home and native land and my dad is my hero so I totally get the way he can encourage and influence.

      It’s Dutch? Very cool! We have some Dutch Canadian friends here in Charlotte and I’ll be asking them about your name.

      Blessings on your week!

Matt Chandler, pastor, and writer, recently used the phrase “a sexy fad” when describing the deconstruction movement. Derek and Jason highlight his statement to dive into the nature of their own de/ and reconstruction. This podcast dives into sin, grace, reconciliation, and God’s love for all His kids, the church deep and wide. Ultimately, the guys kick off season three embracing Rom 8:38-29 That nothing… “will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


Intimacy within marriage, the connection between intimacy and mutuality, the nature of trust, the definition of sex, addressing transactional vs relational thinking, dismantling obligation, addressing objectification and broken ideologies developed from Eph 5:22, “Wives submit to your husbands…” Sheila Gregoire practically rethinks sex so husbands and wives can experience intimacy, joy, and deeper connection.


“The bible, minus love, equals false teaching, false living, and fosters an anger in the soul of man.” Brian Simmons, author of The Passion Translation, talks about approaching scripture with a love theology, the oppressive impact of hyper literalism, women in ministry, equality, union, Jesus’ humanity inside the Trinity, the finished work of the cross, and the passionate, powerful, transforming love of God.


In this podcast, Psychotherapist Kim Honeycutt addresses shame, blame the trauma of rejection. She brilliantly highlights our intrinsic worth, our identity in Christ, and the journey from rejection to acceptance.


The goodness of God but hell, atonement but hell, reformation but hell, scripture but hell, Calvinism but hell; in this podcast Peter Hiett describes hell as “Satan’s big but.” In this conversation Peter walks us through the story of our own creation, the goodness of God’s reconciling love, the relational kindness of a God who encounters, sets free and transforms.

Peter describes a God who delights in His creation, a God who destroys what is evil, creates what is good, and invites us to observe our own creation in Christ Jesus.


Daniel Grothe and the guys discuss his new book, The Power of Place, which speaks the sense of loneliness that many feel in today’s age of hypermobility and noncommittal wandering, reminding us of the ancient vow of stability and teaching us how we can lead a richer life of friendship, community, and purpose.

They also touch on the deconstruction movement within the church, how authoritarian leadership has wounded and undermined trust, and how healing and connection are available only where we practice the long game of family.
