Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

The church lives and has its being in a particular place and time in the world and culture; this has been true for 2000 years in the history of the church. And, the church is always called to respond to the "new waters" in which it finds itself. So here we are in the 20th century, in North America, and we need to ask, what are the waters that we find ourselves in? How would you describe this? What are the waves and ripples? Which way are the tides moving in the waters we find ourselves in? The New Waters podcast gathers thoughtful leaders to hold a discerning lens over the church in Canada. Our mission? To promote bigger conversations in your church or personal ministry, and to help you engage with the new things God is doing.
