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.

Quotes

“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.”

    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.

      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!

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.

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.

WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN / with DEREK TURNER

He came and he walked beside us, He said, “I will never leave you, I will never forsake you; you are not alone, you belong.” When we discover this love, we are transformed and we begin to love like He does. On Palm Sunday Derek speaks about the cross and how we are invited to live surrendered and sure in love. He talks about laying down our loves, loving our enemies, and seeing the kingdom come.

PETER HIETT / WHAT ABOUT HELL?

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.

CARLOS PADILLA / WALKING IN GOD’S POWER

Healing, miracles, the power of God, evangelism through the gospel of inclusion, faith, and reframing repentance, Carlos shares about his journey of discovering that the miraculous, or a transformed life, is simply about discovering God’s love and our origin and union in Him.

GOD IS NOT IN CONROL / SOVEREIGN LOVE with JASON CLARK

What if control is a flawed word to describe God’s sovereignty? What if there is an infinitely better word, a greater revelation, LOVE! Through a fresh look at God’s sovereignty, Jason invites you into a transforming encounter with the love and goodness of our heavenly Father.
