Purity Culture Pt.3 - A Female Perspective (interview with Nicole Allen)

Season 2 Episode 5 - We were thrilled to welcome on the podcast our first ever guest… Nicole Allen!! Nicole talked more with us about purity culture and helped bring a female perspective to our discussion. The conversation ranges from some of the long term damage Purity Culture caused to laughing about some of the ridiculous things we’ve done in the name of staying pure. We are very grateful for Nicole joining us and adding so much to our discussion. Hopefully it’s just the first of having some guests on the podcast!

Season 2 Episode 4 - Lusting or Looking… We should know the difference.

In this episode we try to reframe the way we understand lust. In many church spaces lust becomes an excessive point of focus and our understanding of it leads to much unnecessary guilt and shame. What is scripture really concerned about with lust and can we finally feel free to admit we find humans and their bodies beautiful!

Episode 12 - Letting Go Of The Secular/Sacred Divide

In this episode Joe and I talk about music, concerts, worship and the famous secular/sacred divide. For so many of us this divide was drilled into our heads but does it really makes sense or hold up to sound theology and our own experience. Be prepared to deep dive into some old “Christian Music” bands.
