Difficult conversations can be just that – difficult. Sometimes we are timid or don’t know the word/phrasing to use to convey the thoughts we have. Sometimes those thoughts break our brains a little bit and we may falter to explain what we are thinking – those concepts are in our brains but they haven’t found their way out yet and we are at a loss of words trying to explain these thoughts floating in our heads to others. We really do ourselves a disservice when we fail to engage in these conversations – no matter how difficult or uncomfortable they may be at times. We are three friends who have had these conversations over the years, and while we are serious and dedicated to these conversations we like to have fun during these conversations as well. Join us as we have these conversations - and even if we take positions that you don't agree with - engage with us (respectfully) and use your words.

Ep 11 - Peace and the art of forgivness

4/24/2019
More
We hear all the time that peace is important. Above all things, people appear to want to strive towards peace - but in reality and in our everyday lives - peace sometimes seems to be the last thing on our minds. How does peace tie into forgiveness? How do we forgive and initiate peace with someone when we may no longer be able to communicate with them? How do approach someone we have harmed? While we may not have all the answers we have some thoughts on all of this. Interact with the...

Ep 10 - Millennials. Oh Millennials

4/17/2019
More
The label millennial has a lot of stereotypes associated with it. Some of these, like all stereotypes, are true but not everything is as simple as it seems. We look into and talk about some of these things, and Josh and Aaron being millennials themselves have some insight into all of this from personal experience as well.

Ep 9 - How do we show love?

4/10/2019
More
This week we sat down and spoke with Pastor David Sincock of Fellowship Baptist Church and talked about how to love people, including those people that we disagree with? What does it look like in day to day interaction. We also learn what type of slide makes Pastor Dave's grandchild giggle with joy.

Ep 8 - Camp Stories

4/3/2019
More
This week was a pre-recorded episode as we were up at camp during the normal recording time. We look back on some of our fondest memories of camp/retreats in the past. Paul also shares a dream that he had where Aaron destroyed the word in the most Aaron way possible. We also learn some more background on Paul and Aaron's friendship and why they love to troll each other so much. Interact with the show: Facebook: https://fb.me/UseYourWordsPodcast Fb messenger:...

Ep 7 - How should Christians interact with the LGBTQIA+ community?

3/27/2019
More
The church historically has not been very good with how they interact with people who are "not up to their standards", this includes people from the LGBTQIA+ community. We talk in this episode about how people from the church should lovingly interact with people who are in this community - with the realization that in the past we have failed. We go through some scenarios to hear how two guys from the younger generation (22-25) react with each of the scenarios. From the conservative...

Ep6 - Are video games to blame for violence in society?

3/21/2019
More
Video games have been a point of contention for a while. They have been blamed for everything from shootings to aggression in teens in school, and anti-social behavior. We have been told in the news media all the time that this is the case - and every time there is another tragedy involving a gun we almost always hear about what type of video games the shooter played and how video games lead to this. That being said - what does the science say? Is it settled? And ultimately, who is...

Ep 5 - Consumerism is draining our accounts

3/13/2019
More
We all "know" that American's are obsessed with purchasing items - but how bad is it really? Is minimalism the answer? Is appreciation the answer? Something else? Why do we feel the need to purchase that next item - and does it impact our overall health as well? We don't get to the specific answers (because this is different for everyone) but we talk about how this impacts us in general. Take a listen and let us know!

Episode 4 - A Talk About Music

3/5/2019
More
Two of the three of us love music (Josh apparently didn't listen to music until he became friends with Aaron) and all three of us play instruments. Music has been a very integral part of how we perceive the world and our experiences. We start out playing a game where Josh and Aaron try to determine if a song is a popular secular song or a modern Praise And Worship song. We talk about the very concept about what is music, should we self limit the music we listen to (and why?) as well as...

Episode 3 - A Talk About Swearing

2/26/2019
More
We have a conversation about swearing, cussing and when/if it has a place in our everyday lives/conversations. We also go back to the basics and talk about just what is language with Josh and Aaron getting minor headaches in the process. Josh also discovered that he can make noise by rocking back and forth in his chair and provides a nice ambient squeak through most of the recording something that is not endorsed by Paul or Aaron.

2/19/2019
More
In this episode, we talk about how technology is now the god in our current generation.

Episode 1 - A Discussion On Darkness

2/12/2019
More
In this episode, we surprise Aaron with something that he suggested last week and promptly forgot about. After that, we dive into a conversation about darkness/evil. This is not an all-encompassing conversation and can be considered surface level in many ways. That being said, we will dive deeper into some of these topics but wanted to get the ball rolling on this conversation to not only get our own minds thinking about this but hopefully yours as well.
