What if My Church Doesn’t Care?

What if My Church Doesn’t Care?

Isaac and Austin sit down for the second installment in our FAQ series with a question we often get on the road – “what if my church doesn’t care about ethnic unity?” We talk through scenarios when someone might want to leave their church, but spend most of the conversation cautioning against making quick decisions or judgments about others.

The Necessity of a Charitable Disposition

The Necessity of a Charitable Disposition

Pastor Josh Chatman is back with us because he thinks Christians need to grow in our application of charity. Christian charity is just another way to speak about loving our neighbors, which is a duty all of us have. We don’t have to agree with, understand, or even like someone to be kind to them.

Black History Month: Martin Luther King, Jr

As we continue our Black History Month series, we look today at the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was a remarkably gifted man who managed to lead the complex, often contentious movement we now think of as the Civil Rights Movement. Though he is beloved in our day, he was hated in his own. Helping us think through all of this is Dr. Kevin Smith, a pastor and church historian. We appreciate Dr. Smith’s insight and hope you are encouraged by the episode.
