Episode 43: Why Am I Silent? I Gave Up

Whether it’s caused by the loss of our passion and focus over time; running on principle rather than intimacy with God; or simply not realizing the spiritual battle we are in, we can find ourselves giving up on our calling.

What If the Apostle Paul Had A Band - Part 2

If Paul had a band, he would care deeply about his audience. Not in the sense that we often do in the music scene: caring if people like our Facebook page, come to our shows, enjoy our music and buy our merch.

Following and sharing Jesus in the art and music scene often presents dilemmas - how should we live in this world today? What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus in the scene I’m part of? What can and can’t we do? What is sinful and what is just cultural? It seems that as the church we often fall in one of two extremes: either in our search for holiness we become isolated and alienated, not relating to the culture around us; or we sell out to the culture and forget our values and identity as a follower of Jesus. So how do we get this right?
