Episode 20: Rob Bell

Rob Bell… Over the past few weeks I’ve been reminded of how polarizing that name is for many people…and it’s made me really sad. Not sad because so many people have disagreed with some of his theological observations over the past few years…that’s to be expected with anybody…but it’s the vitriol and hatred with which […]

Episode 19: Anna LeBaron

Episode 17: Propaganda

Some of you (more than I wish) are much like me in that you hear and see issues of race relations all around us in society, but aren’t quite sure how to engage.  You believe in equality…and you have some sense (though limited experience) that things have not always been equal for all…but the conversation seems […]

Episode 13: Brian Zahnd

Out of the early days of Christian music and coffee in the 1980’s, Brian Zahnd became the pastor of (what would become) a megachurch in St. Joseph, Missouri.  Everything was going great…good marriage and a church that was big and still growing….a Pastor’s dream.  But while everything seemed perfect, Brian began to feel a gnawing […]

Episode 12: Michael Milligan Talks Healthcare in America

Have you ever known someone who has faced bankruptcy?  If you have, did you know that there is a 60-70% chance that it started with a financial crisis rooted in healthcare expenses…AND that approximately 70% of those people actually HAD insurance when the crisis started. I can hear it now….Jeff…Why are you talking about bankruptcy […]

From speaking in the towns (and even mosques) of Lebanon, meeting with […]
