Episode 26 - Lent

The rise of social media over the past two decades has allowed everyday patterns and behaviors to take a prominent place in our collective awareness. Among the myriad subjects that are now fair game for this constant stream of informal content, spiritual disciplines can be shared for all the world to see. Practices associated with Lent, which not so long ago would have been carried out in relative solitude, are now consistently present across every social network. On this episode of the podcast, we take a closer look at the season of Lent: the traditions, the symbols, and the significance of this pivotal time in the Church calendar.

Episode 25 - Nick Dotti

Nick Dotti has always been a man among boys. When I first met Nick at a Christian wilderness camp for boys in the late 1990’s he was a giant physical specimen - a 6’4” slab of muscle preparing for the army. After serving 20 years in the military, most of which he spent as an Army Ranger in the U.S. Special Forces where he led and supported teams of warriors on intense post-9/11 combat missions, Nick retired and began asking God the question, “What’s next?” After a few months of obedience and trusting in God’s faithfulness, Nick’s life came full circle. He is now working as the Camp Director of Deerfoot Blue Ridge, a brand new location of the boys’ wilderness camp where so much of his story first took shape. On this episode of the podcast, Nick joins me to talk about what it means to live for something beyond ourselves, and the joys of finding God in the wildest places.

Episode 23 - Chasing Freedom with Tanner Hobbs

By the age of 24, Tanner Hobbs had built a successful online coaching business; nevertheless she felt a gnawing sense in her spirit that something wasn’t quite right. In 2018, God spoke the word, “boldness,” into her life. Tanner was faithful to that and as a result she has seen God completely change the trajectory of her business and her relationships. On this episode, Tanner talks about Chasing Freedom and the next big thing God has called her to.

Episode 21 - Grace and Nuance

In a day where politics and religion are often reduced to talking points and finger pointing, is it even possible to engage the conversation in meaningful ways? Sarah Steward Holland and Beth Silvers, co-hosts of the popular podcasts, Pantsuit Politics and The Nuanced Life, think so. With a combination of both grace and intellect that is too often absent in political discourse these days, Sarah (from the left) and Beth (from the right) have made it their mission to talk about meaningful things in meaningful ways, while still choosing gentleness and patience above all. On this episode of the Ordinary Faith Podcast, Sarah and Beth join me to talk about the ways faith and politics mirror and shape one another, and how their new book, I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening), can give us all a framework from which we can enter the political landscape while keeping our relationships - and our sanity - in tact.

Do you know why you are where you are? Can you see God’s purpose for you where you live? These are questions Shauna Pilgreen has spent the past decade learning after God called her family to plant a church in San Francisco. From the obedient step of leaving one town to the discipline of staying in another, Shauna discovered the art and joy of dwelling.

Growing up in the green room of SNL, being born to a fire-eater and adopted by a SWAT cop, having internal organs explode, and adopting a deaf girl from China, Scarlet Hiltibidal has been given some strange life experiences—and lived in fear through most of them.

But life changed for Scarlet when she learned to hold the gospel up to her fears and realized that though she can't fix herself or protect herself. Jesus walked into this broken, sad, scary place to rescue, love, and cast out her—and your—fear.
