Instead, they held an indoor farmer’s market with food for anyone who needed it.We can only truly know God when we truly know ourselves.Certainty makes preaching easier but living with yourself harder.RELEVANT RESOURCES AND LINKS:Jason Elam:Website:  www.messyspirituality.orgBooks mentioned:Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, by Richard RohrThe Gift of Being Yourself, by David BennerSurrender to Love, by David BennerLife of the Beloved, by Henri NouwenInstructions to leave a review of Spiritual Life and Leadership:Click HERE.Click on the link that says, "Listen on Apple Podcasts."In the window that opens, click the button that says, "Open Link."  This will open iTunes.To the right of the Spiritual Life and Leadership logo, click "Ratings and Reviews."Under the heading, "Customer Reviews," click on the button that says, "Write a Review."Select the number of stars and write your review.Click submit.I'd be so grateful if you did this.  Thank you!— Links to Amazon are affiliate links.  If you make a purchase through any of these links, I’ll receive a small commission–which will help pay for the Spiritual Life and Leadership podcast!Click HERE to find out more about the Church Leadership Institute's 18-month Online Adaptive Capacity Cohorts.Support the show (http://patreon.com/markuswatson)

099 - Experiencing the True Love of God (With Jason Elam)

The Reckless Pursuit

Experiencing the love of Jesus isn’t always what we claim it is in church. It’s not a worship service, a fuzzy feeling, or a strung together set of songs. Experiencing the true love of God goes deeper and is intensely more personal. This week, we are talking with Jason Elam, host of the Messy Spirituality podcast about his journey through deconstruction after spending years as a pastor, missionary, and evangelist. Jason was “that guy” who other pastors called in to straighten out a church that was asking too many questions. But one day he had an encounter with a God he didn’t recognize through all the layers of religiosity he had been attempting to view God through. God is bigger than our box, bolder than our attempts to define Him, and way less religious than most of those who claim His name. When we allow our minds to venture out a bit further from our preconceived notions, we begin to experience a deeper love then we could ever have witnessed from the shoreline. This week we are talking about: * Experiencing the love of God in a new way* Encountering God beyond the ways we have always been taught* Coming to a place of grace for those who do not believe the same as you* What constitutes church---GUEST INFO:Jason Elam is Brandi’s grateful husband, proud dad of 4 awesome kids, a former professional wrestler and radio broadcaster, and former pastor for over 20 years. He currently oversees The Hope Center, a community resource center serving one of Alabama’s poorest communities, and hosts The Messy Spirituality Podcast.Website: http://jasonelam.orgFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/bartenderofgraceInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/beingjasonelamTwitter: https://twitter.com/beingjasonelam---WEEKLY QUESTION/s:• If you found out that nobody was going to hell would that make you happy or angry?We’d love to hear from you! send your response to mail@therecklesspursuit.com or find us on social media!
