Better Than Broken

22:42 – 

Does God want you to be a mess? With the way some Christians talk about brokenness, sin, “getting real” and all the other catchphrases for Christian authenticity, you’d think messiness is the litmus test for mature faith. Sure, humility and an awareness of our depravity apart from Christ are important, but as Brett McCracken asked in his article, has “authenticity” trumped holiness? This week’s panel talks about what it means to be real without clinging to either our sin or self-righteousness.

Awkward in a Good Way

Guests: Sammy Rhodes,

21:43 – 

If you want to have an awkward conversation, bring up topics like body image, divorce, depression and pornography. Not exactly the things you look forward to talking about over coffee. But that pretty much describes how campus minister Sammy Rhodes spends his days. And what’s more is that he likes it! According to Sammy’s book, This is Awkward, getting to the heart of awkward subjects is where true intimacy can be fostered, because nothing is too awkward for God.
