A new podcast has gone “live.” I am looking at the thought of “leaving the Babylon of our own making.” This episode goes a bit into some history with the American church and leads into where we find ourselves today.

I had the privilege of interviewing Jay Kim, author of Analog Church: Why we need real people, places, and things in the digital age from Intervarsity Press. I wanted to chat with him about the book coming out as the country was under a quarantine and needed to be more digital.
It was a fun conversation. Listen HERE.

I listened to the Holy Post Podcast and this week’s discussion (beginning around 10:30.00) has a discussion on an Atlantic Monthly article by David Brooks on the “nuclear family.” It was a fascinating discussion FOLLOWED BY Part 2 of an interview with Matthew Soerens of World Relief on the subject of immigration. Both discussions were challenging and thought provoking.

Being new to the Anglican Church, I try to seek out some great conversations and opportunities for learning. I have learned about Esau McCaulley along the way. He has a new podcast called The Disrupters: Change What Is that is a collaboration with IVP and Christianity Today.

They call us to step away from the consumer culture and change up time and space. This is a great podcast to pick up, since it’s brand new. And this particular episode with well worth your time.
My reading and listening keeps my mind working and my prayer life sharp. I now drive a lot in my work so I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks.
