Approaching scripture, prayer, and our participation in the divine life, Father Kenneth Tanner explores a faith that is beautiful in its simplicity; God really loves humanity.

Kenneth talks about a wonderfully multifaceted church. He addresses how to approach scripture through community with both the contemporary and historic church. “It’s an experiential relationship with the church that reveals the whole picture of Jesus and how we should read scripture,” Kenneth speaks to prayer, once again approaching the subject through community, and finally, he speaks to our divinity in Christ.

Quotes:
“All the language that the New Testament uses is plural.”

“The core identity of every human is the image of God. Which cannot be taken from any human.”

Regarding Job, “…You can open that book and realize right away that it is not meant to be read literally. God does not play dice with human lives. Nor bargain or negotiate with Satan about human being’s lives…”

“The glory of God is a human being fully revealed.” Ananias

Fr. Kenneth Tanner is pastor of Church of the Holy Redeemer in Rochester Hills, Michigan. He writes for many magazines including, Sojourners, The Clarion Journal, and more.

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.

ALLEN ARNOLD / THE EDEN OPTION

“The world is accelerating in the wrong direction. It feels like all we’re doing is trying to fix what’s broken. And it isn’t working. We’re exhausted, overwhelmed, and losing heart. Where is God in all this? Well, he’s living a different story. A story he’s inviting us into.” That’s the back cover introduction to Allen’s new book, The Eden Option. In this conversation, the guys dive in and explore a homeward journey, not to the Eden of the past, but a new Eden discovered in Christ. Union, rest, community, creativity, miracles, and hope, in this podcast Allen shares his journey into trust and maturing faith.

CHERITH FEE NORDLING / A PERMANENTLY HUMAN GOSPEL

“The reason you can’t take your own human life seriously is because you’ve never taken my (Christ’s) life seriously.” The incarnation, Jesus as fully human, Jesus and His divinity, grace, cruciform love, leaving Gnosticism, resurrection fearlessness, freedom, and salvation as a human story; in this conversation, Cherith shares a beautiful gospel in which we are discovering how to enter into the life of Jesus!

THERE IS NO “US OR THEM” AT THE CROSS

This podcast highlights Jason’s book, Leaving and finding Jesus, where he writes about his deconstructing faith journey. The book is Jason’s Emmaus Road discovery of a love that is reconciling all creation; a journey where he’s awakening to a burning heart while leaving every Jesus who won’t lay His life down for His friends. 

FELICIA MURRELL / EMPATHY; THE TREASURE OF THE INCARNATION

“The Spirit said to me, ‘I want you to hand to me everything that you believe to be true about God and let me hand back to you everything that is true.’”

Racism, deconstruction, shame, guilt, certainty, empathy, infinite mercy, grace, healing, and other-centered, self-giving love, in this amazing conversation, Felecia and Jason visit fear and prejudice while leaning into the AND of God’s always present, empathetic, reconciling love.
