Mark speaks on the disorienting faith shift so many are currently experiencing regarding their thoughts about God, the church, and ourselves. With grace and insight, Mark addresses the PTSD symptoms of those who have been de-churched; “…those who wanted community and got judgment, who wanted to affect the life of the church and got bureaucracy, who wanted conversation and got doctrine, who wanted meaningful engagement with the world and got moral prescription.”

This Podcast encourages those who have experienced some form of a shift in their theology and then have either felt a sense of not belonging in their home church or have even been rejected.

Quotes:
“As Christians, were fluid human beings, we’re gonna change some beliefs here and there.”

“For me, it’s asking leadership, it’s asking those within the church, ‘are you harming or are you healing? Are you punishing for punishment’s sake,’ which is the essence of retributive practice, ‘or are you restoring for love’s sake.”

“The beautiful thing is when people can become who they are in God. The creative, unique, multifaceted human beings that are embedded and embodied in divine love; my goodness it can be so freeing!”

ROD WILLIAMS / UNION WITH DISTINCTION

Union, a Triune God, mutual indwelling others-centered love (perichoresis) approaching scripture to discover Jesus, and communion are some of the themes Rod Williams dives into. What if “all” means “all” and God isn’t distant? There is no distance, no separation in God and this conversation is a beautiful invitation to awaken to that discovery and our union with Him.
