The Outside Voice Show

Christian Talk >

The Outside Voice Show is a podcast (radio show) created by Shane Arden Whitaker in January 2016 for building new relationships with people who might not otherwise visit our church building here in Decatur, IL. The hope is that by participating in open dialogue with others; about their lives, their stories, and their experiences, that we would both begin to find some common ground by which we can begin to build trust and friendship – free of judgement, free of condemnation, and full of love and understanding. "I believe we can get a better understanding of each other when we will simply take the time to ask questions then listen to what is being shared without preparing a response." – @Shane_Arden …or something like this: The Outside Voice Show is giving people the opportunity share their life stories, successes and failures, with people all across the world in hopes of helping others find encouragement within our commonality and the human condition. We hope you will join us on this journey for understanding and truth that begs for us to use our outside voice to help ignite a fire inside. @voice_outside

Episode 57 – Cryptocurrency with Tony Marion

4/4/2018
More
Unlike the DMV it is rare for things not to change. As technology continues to pave the way for how we 'do' things we begin to question the usefulness, the design, and the potential of some our existing structures in today's society including money and how we apply value to something. In the recent past few weeks it seems like every news outlet and water cooler conversation is about cryptocurrency. You may have heard something about Bitcoin and how people are getting 'rich' seemingly...

Have you ever dreamed of doing something in life so much so that it seemed real to you - so real that you could almost taste it and/or touch it? How would you feel if you actually achieved that dream or goal only to have it snatched out from underneath you due to circumstances beyond your control, leaving you with a feeling that sometimes life is just not fair?....Well...such is the story of many such dreamers like my guest today.

Many of you can probably relate to being a kid in a small town with only your imagination to entertain you. As you grew up a bit you began to notice other influences around you that began to draw you in and helped you to become the person you are today. ....and you know what? ...that's AWESOME!

Are Youth Pastor’s Real Pastors?

Have you ever experienced one of those Sunday church services where the lead pastor is either out-of-town or out of his mind when allows the youth pastor to bring the message. WTH-oly Land?! This guy/or gal who is barely out of high school is not only leading our children each week in some sort of 'relevant church service' complete with games, prizes, and funny videos to help them get closer to God, but now I have to sit through his weak watered down message about how the youth should not...

Episode 51 - Authentically Authentic

Nobody likes a fake person. So then why do we all play pretend so much during our daily interactions with other people? Are we hiding something? Are we scared? Are we prideful? Are we selfish? What is it that makes us so fearful of being our 'real' selves around others, especially those we consider to be our true friends? This episode of the podcast attempts to discuss some of those questions and notions about what it really means to be authentic and transparent, especially within the body...

With rockets red glare and bombs bursting in the air, we found our flag still standing there as symbol of proof to the validity to the testimonies of sacrifice made in the name of freedom, but did it really even matter... On this weeks episode of the show, we get the chance to speak with one of the founding members of the Audiofeed Music Festival, Jim Eisenmenger.

Go West Young Man

It's often baffling for me to realize that not all of us have the same desires and dreams for our lives. I have tendency to assume that everyone in the world at some point wants to be a rock star or celebrity, but as I get older I am finding that is not always true. Some people just want to be left alone, or merely loved, or allowed to explore life on their own terms without all the worldly pressure to succeed in something deemed admirable or newsworthy. This week I sit down to talk to...

Is America Worth Saving?

3/7/2017
More
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." The Pledge of Allegiance, as it exists in its current form, was originally composed in August 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian socialist, and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898). However, there existed an earlier version created by Colonel...

Shout - Shout - Let it all out These are the things I can do without Come on - I'm talking to you - Come on - Tears for Fears What is the most effective way for us to share an idea or a truth with a stranger? Is it best to be straight forward and engage them directly with whatever notion or nugget of wisdom we wish to offer up or would it be better for us to slow things down and get to know our audience first? Of course, the second option certainly sounds nicer if anything, but it doesn't...

Bring Home The Bacon

1/30/2017
More
I find it somewhat humorous that when we hear the word bacon, half of us think of the tasty treat with the unfortunate long-term side effects known to us as bacon, while the other half immediately think of the 1984 major motion picture Footloose star - Kevin Bacon, who we are all just six degrees away from. Either way, bacon has certainly made its mark on the world today by not only being delicious, but also by being the actor/dancer. #BaconLovesBacon So why bacon? Well, other than needing...

How well do you respond to life when things don't seem to be going your way? Do you find yourself becoming increasingly frustrated with the constant uncertainty of your life and overwhelmed by the things you can't control but instead they control you?

In The Name of Love

It's a new year and there are lots of new things that will soon become like all the other things, 'old' and seemingly 'useless', but one thing that I don't believe will ever get old for me is hearing the stories people tell about their journey through life, regardless of where they are in that journey. Some stories give me insight into a person's life and teach me how they became who they are now, while other stories cause me to reflect upon my own life. Whatever the case may be, I look...

Have you ever felt like you were going against the stream of life? Every year salmon migrate from the ocean, swim to the upper reaches of rivers where they spawn on gravel beds. After spawning, all Pacific salmon and most Atlantic salmon die, and the salmon life cycle starts over again. So what's the point? Was it worth the effort? Life can certainly throw a curve ball like nobody's business. When we least expect something can happen in an instant that has the power to disrupt our lives...

When life gives you lemons, ask for more. Become a lemon trader. Sell lemons at a lower price than the prevailing market price. Build a company which sells lemons. Become an international lemon selling brand. Have profits in the billions. Become rich and keep asking for more lemons. I'm not too sure that is how the old saying goes, but I like this persons' way of thinking. Life certainly does have its moments of 'suck-dom' and you may find yourself wondering what in the heck is going on...
