Dale Howie

Unspoken Sermons On The Good News Of Inclusion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paraphrasing the sermons of George MacDonald, Dale Howie shares his sometimes painful, often beautiful, journey of awakening to the irreducible truth of life discovered in relationship. He speaks to grace, our common Fatherhood, our inclusion in Christ’s life, death and resurrection, our union, and the wonder of our humanity. A humble storyteller and relational theologian, Dale speaks as a father on behalf of Our Father, who loves all His children with a reconciling love.

QUOTES

“The God that’s alone in heaven doesn’t love anybody. He creates out of need. The Trinity, they don’t need anything. They have life and fellowship in abundance…they wanted to share their relationship with us”

“MacDonald hammers home that the cause of all of our problems is the fact that we will not accept our common Fatherhood.”

“Love fulfills the law to overflowing…” George MacDonald

“One question is worth a thousand answers. Paul young

“The questions come out of brokenness, come out of failure, they come out of all the lies you’ve been told and all the things you’ve believed and all the things you have told.”

“I can’t sit across from somebody who isn’t His child.”

“Anointing is nothing but my spirit speaking directly to yours and it can only happen because I own it.”

“…This life is simply goodness, as good as the very life of God is good and filled with the very joy of our being.”  George MacDonald

SCOT MCKNIGHT / A CHURCH CALLED TOV

Co-Author of A Church Called TOV, Scot McKnight talks about his new book written in response to the abuses of power, sexual abuse, and spiritual abuse within the leadership of Willow Creek, Harvest, and sadly churches of all shapes and sizes.

We talked about TOV (which means goodness) and how when we practice empathy, compassion, extending grace, putting people first, telling the truth, promoting justice, and serving others, TOV emerges in the culture and we all become more Christlike.

SHEILA GREGOIRE / THE GREAT SEX RESCUE

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.

MATTHEW HESTER / GOD WAS PLEASED TO REVEAL HIS SON IN ME

Mystery, faith, salvation and awaking to Christ’s likeness within us, adoption and sonship, being in the family, discovering the Word in scripture, and living from union, we discuss this and more with Matthew Hester in a passionate conversation around the love of God. Matthew is an author, pastor of Dominion Church (Greer SC), and founder of Hester Ministries and Present Truth Academy.

NAEEM FAZAL / REIMAGINING GOD

Naeem Fazal, founding pastor of Mosaic Church, and author of Ex-Muslim, talks about deconstruction or reimaging God. Naeem talks about the importance of being able to recognize God outside of our personal context, how to view sin, how to approach scripture, and a beautiful gospel that’s not just about a Jesus who saves but about a Jesus who is restoring humanity and all creation.

BRUXY CAVEY / LOVING GOD BY LOVING OUR NEIGHBOR

Bruxy Cavey, author, and pastor of The Meeting House, dives into relational faith, loving God through loving our neighbor, repenting with a hopeful future focus, how doubt is connected to our faith, how we are not people of the book (bible) we are people of the person (Jesus), and three perspectives on hell concluding with the fact that the New Testament church never leveraged hell to get people to make a decision to for Jesus.

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord
