Finding Rest

Spiritual Growth|Roundtable
Guests: Matthew Demeritt, Kathryn Eutsler and Jake Roberson

[21:48] - 

I've been talking about slinging my hammock up on my apartment deck for weeks now, but I haven't done it. Why? Because, to be honest, rest seems like a waste of time. Ever feel that way? Sometimes you have to actually plan to rest. Grab your hammock and a cool drink, and chill with us as we figure out how to recharge this summer.

Balancing Truth and Grace

Community|Culture
Guests: Caleb Kaltenbach

[24:11] - 

When he was a boy, Caleb Kaltenbach’s parents divorced and each pursued homosexual relationships. Caleb grew up in that culture, attending gay pride parades and watching Christians exhibit a lot of un-Christlike behavior. When he was a teenager, he found Jesus and suddenly faced a crisis of both identity and loyalty. Caleb is refreshingly chill as he recounts his journey of truth and grace. Listen in as he shares some gritty, real and very interesting insights on how to unconditionally love others we don’t agree with.

What are some practical ways to not feel so awkward going to weddings alone? Lisa Anderson (who once went to 14 weddings in just over a year) has been there and shares some hope.
