Episode 103: Jeff Yellow Owl and Reaching the Native Americans

Today I want to talk about something that has been on my mind for a long time. As a young child, I was fascinated with Native American culture. Like most Americans in my generation, we played a lot of cowboys and Indians, I always wanted to be the Indian. The one who lived off the land and made cool things like tomahawks and bows and arrows. I was told these people were savages, they were violent, pagan and that our European ancestors came to civilize them. As I grew older, I realized these things didn’t line up with the truth. The sad thing is history is written by the winners. I began to ask difficult questions like: What is the price we have to pay when Christian people justify the genocide of a whole people group? What can I learn from these oppressed people? How can these wounds be healed? What is God doing to redeem and bring healing to the Native people? Today I interview Jeff Yellow Owl where we explore some of these questions. Jeff serves as a pastor, therapist, and conference speaker. Jeff is a Native American who is reaching the Native people with the Gospel.  Resources: One Church, Many Tribes by Richard Twiss Rescuing the Gospel from the Cowboys by Richard Twiss Black Buffalo: Tales of My Life by Ray Wilson Whiteman’s Gospel by Bill McCartney and Craig Stephen Smith Indian Givers: How the Indians of the Americas Transformed the World by Jack Weatherford If you want to get in touch with Jeff Yellow Owl, you can email him at: Jsyellowowl@gmail.com.

Episode 102: Steve Overman on Traditions and Dead Theologians

Today I want to ask a question. Do dead theologians matter today? We hear about being the church of now and being cutting edge, and a lot of stuff today that frankly, overtime makes me wonder, should we listen to our ancestors? I love this quote from G.K. Chesterton. “Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is a democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who nearly happen to be walking about.” Today we’re going to explore why dead theologians matter. We’re going to do a deep dive into one of my favorites, Maximus the Confessor. And I could think of no one better to talk about than my good friend Steve Overman from Eugene Faith Center.  Here are Steve's articles for download: Materiality, Beauty, and Space: The Eastern Traditions as a Ressourcement for Pentecostal Worship and the Arts Blood Cries Out: Pentecostals, Ecology, and the Groans of Creation Here are the links to previous posts on my blog referenced in today's Episodes: Marriage: God's House of Ambush Episode 099: The Community of God with Doug Bursch Here are the links to books to dive deeper into Maximus the Confessor: Maximus Confessor by George Berthold Maximus Confessor by Andrew Louth If you’re enjoying this podcast, spread the word by sharing it with your friends and leaving a review on Apple Podcasts.

Episode 101: An Update on Jonathan and Sarah Griffiths

The Bible says in Proverbs 16:9 (ESV), “The heart of the man plans his way, but the  Lord establishes his steps." Every one of us starts on a journey thinking "man, God is going to do this, and He’s going to do that." That’s kind of how God hooks us in. But what I’ve learned is that God never gives us the fine details because if we would have known the details we probably would have backed out. This week we’re going to explore some of that. If you’ve been part of this podcast for a while you’ll know Jonny and Sarah Griffiths, they have been our guinea pigs for what it means to go on the missions field. In Episode 35, Episode 36, Episode 52 and Episode 76 we talked about various processes they went through along the way. This week I’ve asked them to come back to talk about what they have learned until now.  Be sure to follow All In Griffs on Facebook and check out their website: allingriffs.com If you’re enjoying this podcast, spread the word by sharing it with your friends and leaving a review on Apple Podcasts.

Episode 099: The Community of God with Doug Bursch

There’s a phenomenon going on in the church today, among Christians and the non-practicing, post-church Christians. They yes to Jesus, and no to the Church. However, I do not believe that people are rejecting the church outright, but are rejecting the attempts being made at being the church. People work with methods and systems but they never get down to the essence of what The Church is. Church, after all, is not a place you go, but a people who exist. Today our guest has written an insightful book that talks about empowering and transformative relationships that happen among the people of God within community. Dough Bursch wrote The Community of God: A Theology of the Church from a Reluctant Pastor. Today we will explore a little about what it means to be the Church. You can find Doug's book, The Community of God: A Theology of the Church from a Reluctant Pastor on Amazon.

I got to know Tim over the last few years while we were doing our master’s degree. He gave me his book The Backside of Hope and I was seriously blown away.

His book is about how God transformed his life and gave him hope. Woven into his journey is forgiveness, restoration, and receiving the love of the Heavenly Father. It's this remarkable love that ultimately surpasses anything one could ever imagine or hope for.  You can get in touch with Tim and Dhana through their Facebook page or emailing timothywimberly@gmail.com.

Episode 087: Lent Series, Part One

Hey everybody. I'm starting a journey this week, a journey into the Lenton season. I started doing Lent type things in the early 2000's because I wanted to experience spiritual "spring cleaning. Lent is an old Saxon word meaning Springtime and has been around for over 2000 years. Lent was a period of early observers would begin to prepare themselves 40 days before Easter. If people have been doing this for so long and it has been helpful for them, I should listen to them! I am inviting you to go with me into a season of “deep cleaning” with me in this Lenton season. Fasting is part of Lent.  Let go of something in order to take up something else. To fast is to slow down. For these weeks leading up to Easter, set aside this time to let the Lord work deeply in you. For no other reason than to draw you closer to Him, to be restored in Him. Focus: Repentance, Turning to the Lord Renewing our mind Renovating our heart A few tools we will use: The Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem The Daily Office from the Book of Common Prayer The Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem: O Lord and Master of my life! Take from me the spirit of sloth, faint-heartedness, lust for power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Your servant. Yes, O Lord and King! Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother; For You are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. Ephrem lived between 306-379. He was a prolific author of hymns and scriptural commentaries, earning him titles like “The Harp of the Spirit,” and “Pillar of the Church.” He wrote a prayer that is still used today during Lent. It has stood the test of time and experience. O Lord and Master of My Life! Take from me the spirit of sloth, faintheartedness Lust for power, and idle talk. Give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, Patience and love to Your servant. Yes, O Lord and King! Grant me to see my own error And not to judge my brother. For You are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. The prayer expresses submission, supplication, and surrender. My journey to wholeness in Christ begins with my submission to His Lordship. “O Lord and Master of my life.” Prayer is the catalyst igniting the memory and knowledge of my redeemed status: I have been bought with a price. I am redeemed from slavery to death and sin. Now, I am joyfully a slave of Christ. He is my Lord, Master, and King. I, a slave of Christ, am the freest of men. The price of my redemption was paid. My purpose was secured through Him. I have been purchased, and I have been purposed. Encountering the Living God I cry out from my broken human condition, “Take from me the spirit of sloth, faintheartedness, lust for power, and idle talk.” “Take from me…” Wrench it from my secret grip. Twist and extract this malignant growth from the interior of my soul. This is my plea. This is my supplication. You, my Sovereign Lord and Master, must take it from me, for I am unable to lay it down of my own will and power. I surrender my darkness: the wreckage of my own ways, the dust and chaos of my exhausted soul. These I surrender. They are not treasures for you nor are they jewels for your crown. They are stains. Human stains. Take them from me.

“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord God,     “when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,     but of hearing the words of the Lord."

Episode 076: Update from Jonathan and Sarah Griffiths

Hey everybody! Back in episode 35, I started an experiment with a couple that had not yet gone public with the news they would be moving to the UK to become missionaries. I have interviewed them several times, at different stages in this process. Episode 36 was just after they announced to their church, and episode 42 was an interview I did with Sarah's parents about how they handled the news. There was also an update given in episode 52 while they were traveling around the United States raising finanical support.  I'm happy to announce they have raised all their needed funds and are deploying to the UK today, October 4th, 2016. This interview we chat about the excitement and hardships they've faced leading up to this point.  Be praying for the Griffiths, as they transition their family to living on the field. Pray for God's favor on finding a vehicle and a home to live in. If you want to connect with Jonathan and Sarah and keep up with them on this journey, visit their website.

Episode 075: Guarding Your Heart

Wonder how it's possible to have a relationship with God but not completely restored? We are still in my sermon archives and starting a new series on Nehemiah. The series focuses on the restoration of the human personality and the rebuilding of the human character. Today's episode is a bonus sermon, on the importance of guarding your heart.  If you missed any in this series, you can catch up on part one, part two, part three, part four, part five,part six, part seven and part eight.
