Faithfully Connected

with Derek Turner & Jason Clark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Faith is a seed that is to be planted firmly in the love of God.” Atheism, politics, nationalism, identity, punishment, hell, evangelism, and the church, in this conversation Derek and Jason, dive into a faith that is not transactional and always relational. The guys talk about how it’s the power of kindness to change the world. This is a generous conversation between two friends who are becoming sure that God is like Jesus and always has been; two fellas rethinking what it means to be a friend of God.

    Hello!

    I really love this podcast and share it frequently. I wanted to comment on this episode because of the thoughts about brunch church. My current community actually does this! We meet in a home sometimes in the morning for breakfast but mostly for dinner. Afterwards we share, sing, pray, listen, etc. it’s been such a refreshing, safe, and nurturing space for wholeness in our personal and collective walks. I absolutely validate these desires and thoughts for a more communal time of worship. Detaching our community from a more capitalistic model has freed a space for some huge paradigm shifts; it has created a space free from not only monetary biases, but also unhealthy hierarchy. It’s a larger conversation, but I just wanted to share!

      Hey, Kelly,

      Thanks so much for the encouraging words!

      I love the community you described. Detaching from a more “capitalistic model,” love that articulation. Love the removal of anything transactional within community.

      I’m with you regarding removing unhealthy hierarchy!

      It is a larger conversation and I think so many are having it! Honored to be on the journey with you. Praying grace and life over you and your community.

      Blessings!
