Rank #1: TGC - 026 - An Intro to Spiral Dynamics

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 first video we are going to look at why understanding human psychological development is important and how you can use it to grow more effectively in your faith and interact with others who are at different stages than you are.

The stages as discussed in this video are just a very quick summary and I would strongly recommend you watch the more indepth videos later in the series as well.

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.

Rank #2: TGC - 011 - Phil Drysdale - How We Read The Bible

Podcast cover
Read more
This week we talk about HOW we read the Bible.

We all open the Bible and develop a view on who we are and who God is... but we fail to see often that there are different ways to do this and some are more helpful and others much less helpful to our faith.

In this third video we look at the second main stage within Spiral Dynamics. Stage Red. The Warrior stage.

We discuss what makes Red 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 Red.

You might not be stage Red yourself but you have likely been through a lot of stage Red thinking and worldviews and are likely to engage with others who are in this stage.

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.

Rank #7: TGC - 022 - Is God Really Good? - The Uncomfortable Truth

Podcast cover
Read more
In this first part of a three part series we take an honest look at all the parts of the Bible we don't want to acknowledge are there. You know... the bits where God just simply isn't a very nice person. At least, He certainly doesn't seem to line up very well with His representative Jesus. WARNING: This episode is depressing and you might have a bit of an existential crisis after listening to it. I strongly recommend hanging in there to listen to the next two.

Rank #15: 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!
