43 – Dusty and Erin Stanczyk – some of My Favorite Vegans

Early on in my plant-based journey, I met Dusty and Erin.   Since then, their social media presence has grown by leaps and bounds.  They are not only “adorable,” but they also know their stuff and they love helping others.  The following is an excerpt from their channel: There are three things we all do every…

41 – Jonas – some of My Favorite Vegans

This little mini series is about a few of the interesting people I know that are plant-based.  We tend to think of vegans as commune living, hemp wearing hippies that don’t fit in regular society.  As veganism becomes more mainstream, I just wanted to introduce you to some of my wise, interesting friends. This series…

40 – Jordan Forehand – one of My Favorite Young People

Got the chance to talk to my favorite son and one of my favorite young people.  He is 28 years old and lives in Taiwan (not Thailand).  He is an English teacher there and one of the hosts of the Free China Post and Free China Pod. If you have read my book, you know…

39 – Brad Jersak – A More Christlike Way

What a privilege to chat with Brad Jersak.  We talked about his new book “A More Christlike Way” but also about Church, the Bible and Water to Wine.  Brad did an excellent job of talking about complex issues is a concise way.  We squeezed a lot into the interview!  I hope you enjoy it!   All…

38 – Jennifer – My Story of Tragedy

Recently I interviewed Paul Young and he talked about sacred stories.  Of course, my mind went to sharing happy stories and encouraging each other.  But, he added that some of those stories are “gut-wrenching” but still beautiful.

37 – Pete Enns – How the Bible Actually Works

Since the beginning of my deconstruction I have sought Pete’s work out as a reliable reference to help me understand a healthy approach to the Bible.  It’s amazing that I even still read the Bible after some of the stuff I have been through. His books “The Bible Tells Me So” and “The Sin of…

36 – Seth Showalter – Fade to Gray

Two of the issues I didn’t discuss in my book were Race and Homosexuality.  My views have changed a lot over the years, but every time I talk to someone intimate with these issues (like a person of color or someone that is gay), I realize how far I still have to go. For this…

35 – Keith Giles – Jesus Unveiled

Join Keith and I as we talk about home church, Ekklesia and his upcoming projects.  Ketih is a fellow Quoir author and friend.  It’s easy to talk to him for a half-hour mostly because he does most of the talking (just kidding). Keith is one of the important voices in the climate today – I…

34 – Ben DeLong – There’s a God in My Closet

In our deconstruction and examining our beliefs, sometimes we find out there is a lot of hard work to do.  Join Ben and I as we talk about his new book, There’s a God in My Closet and also about the hard work we often must do.  I think you’ll like this. Ben’s New Book Ben’s Website…
