In this unplanned episode of the podcast David and Ben discuss Taylor Swift’s new single “You Should Calm Down” and its scathing attack on the abuse of LGBT community at hands of Christians.
The guys wrestle with how followers of Jesus can meaningfully engage with a culture that views us as bigots, intolerant, and homophobic. They ask, in what ways is Taylor Swift right, and how can we do a better job of proactively demonstrating the love and character of God to an increasingly hostile world.

In this episode, David shares about his day as a wedding singer in southeastern Turkey.
The guys then move on the critical subject of relevance. They ask whether we have become foreigners in our cities and how we can become relevant in sharing the Gospel in secular culture. They talk about the need to develop authentic relationships with nonbelievers to learn how to communicate the Gospel effectively outside of the church.
This discussion is vital to any Christian wanting to use their lives to reach people for Jesus!
While in Hawaii for a Provoke&Inspire conference, Austin Carlile (Of Mice and Men/Attack! Attack!) joins Ben, David and Chad in person to share his story, the loss he’s experienced in his life, how he found Jesus in the midst of everything and what God is doing in and through his life now!
