This week is part 5 of our 6 part series on Romans. We are going to look at the Law. Everyone's favourite topic!

Let's have a look...

Rank #4: TGC - 029 - Spiral Dynamics - Stage Blue

Podcast cover
Read more
Spiral Dynamics is an amazing model of human psychological development. It tracks how the human mind develops and can give us incredible insight into where, we, others, our families, churches, nations etc. are at in our personal development. It can also give us incredible insight into how we can interact with others at different stages as well as what we ourselves can do to continue to grow up the spiral.

Over 70 independent primary studies done over almost 100 years in dozens of different cultures and supported by 100’s of other studies have shown pretty conclusively that there is a direction in which the human psyche moves as it develops. That is to say, the way humans grow and develop has been mapped out quite a bit. We know what steps most people take as they grow in the way they see the world, and this in turn effects how our societies, cultures and faiths look.

In this series we look at this roadmap to see where are we on the journey, where are we going and how might we use this information to interact more healthily with others and grow more intentionally.

These videos are seriously in depth and will take some serious time to watch and will require a lot of additional time to process in serious contemplation if you are to get the most out of them.

In this fourth episode we look at the third main stage within Spiral Dynamics. Stage Blue. The Traditional stage.

We discuss what makes Blue tick. What do they value, what drives them. How do they see God, Jesus, The Bible etc. And how we can interact with others at Stage Blue.

You might not be stage Blue yourself but you have likely been through a lot of stage Blue thinking and worldviews and are likely to engage with others who are in this stage as it is the most common stage in the world right now.

I cannot stress enough that this is a HUGE topic that has a massive scope for changing your life. It is also likely to upset you profoundly unless you are already well on the way to deconstructing your faith. You have been warned.

Podcast cover
Read more
In this podcast I chat with Colby Martin who is a pastor from San Diego. Colby has been very outspoken on the topic of affirming the LGBTQ community and wrote a great book called unclobber which I think is one of the easiest to read, well studied and thought out resources for anyone who wants to understand how a Christian can hold an affirming position.

Here is some of what we talk about:

* Exploring who we really are?
* Do certain expressions of church stifle exploring our true identity?
* Why communities need to be safe places to ask questions
* Why the church is worth saving
* Why leaders need to be vulnerable and open
* The problem with linking our beliefs to our standing with God
* How to handle inter-church relations when there is so much difference of opinion?
* Why is homosexuality THE issue in the church?

TGC - 017 - Mark Sanchez - From Pastor To Mental Institute

Podcast cover
Read more
Mark Sanchez has been a pastor for many years, he was the senior pastor of a successful church in New England, travelling all over the place preaching on the grace and love of God. He moved in the supernatural and saw amazing things everywhere he want. And then he ended up in a mental institute. Here we talk about some of his story and a whole bunch of other things. It’s a lot more relaxed than usual (maybe this will be the new format – I loved it!) and we just jump right into it so don’t be surprised that there are no formalities :)

Topics discussed:
- The importance for vulnerability and authenticity – especially in pastors
- Why so many pastors struggle
- How certainty has become an idol for many of us
- Struggling with the Old Testament
- The trap of being driven by ministry
- Why churches are struggling to keep young adults coming along
- Learning to celebrate our questions
- How the noise of Christianity can create a barrier that stops us being present with God

and lots more!
