Episode 25 – Jonathan Martin

As the Water to Wine Gathering approaches, it was good discuss a plethora of topics with Jonathan Martin.  He talks about the “boy on the bike,” Water to Wine, and how he would change the world.  I appreciate his vulnerability. I finally asked him, “What’s the deal with Brian Zahnd” and I think you’ll like…

Episode 22 – Meg Calvin and Miranda Priddy

Who would have thought that I would interview these two beautiful, intelligent women on the day that Rachel Held Evans was memorialized.  But, that’s how it worked out and we ended up talking about her, among other things.  I didn’t know Meg or Miranda very well before this conversation, but I’m now glad we got…

I’m good!

Often, I wonder why people underestimate me.  Once, at the annual meeting of a denomination, I presented a report about our church.   One of the larger church pastors was truly amazed that I could speak well in public.  He actually said, “Wow Karl, you speak pretty well.  You used humor and had an organized talk…” …

Episode 19 – Keith Giles

I was fortunate to be able to talk to my friend Keith Giles and ask him the questions I wanted to ask him.  So, this is not your typical interview, it’s just the questions that were burning in my mind.  We did Talk about his new book, Jesus Unveiled, that will be out June 9th. To find…

Episode 11 – Jamal Jivanjee (part 1)

I was honored to have Jamal on my podcast this morning.  The audio is not great, but we’re kind of low tech here.  Listen as Jamal talks about his unique view of life, purpose  and the currency of love.  I thoroughly enjoyed his new book “Living For a Living” (due out April 15th) and look…

Darkness and Shadow

I grew up in a large family where it was never quiet. Nothing was ever totally still and there was never complete darkness. There always seemed to be a light on somewhere and, when I was young, I could fall asleep anywhere except in the dark. My children, too, could never sleep in total darkness….

The Map is Not the Treasure

My new boss got me interested in the television show, The Curse of Oak Island.  It is a “reality” show that combines myth, legend, some history and quite a bit of mystery.  It centers around finding a treasure that seems to always be just out of the reach of the treasure seekers.  Like most reality…

The Little Things

I just got in from taking the dog out.  Honestly, it seems like we play a lot of games with things like this.  I try to do my fair share with the little things around the house, but to be honest, Laura always comes out to be the champ in that area.  Over time, little…
