Wm. Paul Young

Trust Is My Throughline & Jesus Is What God Is Like









In part 1, Paul tells a story about the making of the Shack, his friendship with Brad Jersak and how God used their first meeting, and the filming of the shack to heal a couple who had experienced great loss.

Paul dives into the goodness of God and trust.

“Trust is my through-line”
“In religion, you don’t actually have to trust God”

Paul discussed the yearly conference, The Grand Embrace with Wm. Paul Young, Dr. Brad Jersak, Cathy AJ Hardy & Lorie Martin



In part 2, Paul dove into scripture and how to read it for an encounter. He highlighted that Jesus is what God is like. He also discussed how God gives us grace for today and how to live in this moment.

Wm. Paul Young regarding Abraham Sacrificing Isaak
“…Abraham. Number one, don’t sacrifice children. I know that you’re stuck in this mindset, so here’s a goat… number two, if YOU need a sacrifice, I will provide Myself…It’s not a story that justifies the sacrificing of children, every religion wants to sacrifice children, this is about a God (revealing) ‘I’m not who you think I am.”

Below are some of the people Paul references who have influenced him and who he is reading now.
