If those things are true, then we should start building a better world! Continue reading

Finding Peace Amid All the Resolutions

By AARON CHARLES The calendar has turned to January. Time for resolutions. And time for think pieces about why resolutions should be renamed “intentions” or something like that. I’m not here to do that to you. We aren’t robots and our ability to produce and improve are not the only grades we need to make. It’s easy to get those messages seared into our brains but I’m not sure they quite fit. So what are you supposed to do with your January then? Continue reading

Season 1 in Review

By DAN WEISS Hey Family! This has been an incredible first year of the podcasting. When we first started we didn't really know what to expect, or if we'd make it through a whole year.

Episode 12 - SUBVERSIVE WITNESS with Dominique Dubois Gilliard

Most of us know the stories of Moses, Esther, Paul & Silas and Zacchaeus. But have you ever thought about the role privilege played in their stories? In his new book, Dominique Dubois Gilliard looks at these well-known Bible stories from a different lens and translates the lessons he discovered to our current culture. Each of those Biblical characters had a form of privilege and, when faced with an opportunity, used it to subvert systems of power in order to uplift and restore vulnerable people.  Continue reading

The Neighboring Journey

By AARON CHARLES I need. I should. I... ...I have a lot of guilt when it comes to neighboring. When I was kid, we’d have cookouts with our neighbors. I played games with my neighbor’s grandson for hours on end. I worked for my neighbors down the street. Now, as an adult, I’ve found that cultivating those relationships does not happen automatically. When I walk out to water my plants and see my neighbor in their yard, I think of all the things I should do or say. Continue reading
