Episode 19 - Aaron Niequist - So what's the deal with a practice-based faith?

It was so good to have Aaron Niequist drop in to the podcast to talk through the value of a practice-based faith. God has been at work since the beginning of creation and Aaron speaks of this work as a river, a river that we are invited to not only believe exists, but we are invited into it. To wade in it and participate with God in the healing of the world. Aaron discovered a practice-based faith years ago when the limits of his own faith experience left him feeling spiritually empty,...


Episode 18 - Alex Seeley - Tailor Made

From an early age Alex Seeley was told she was an accident, but she also carried the weight of feeling stupid.

Aelx joins the conversation on vulnerability and the labels we all wear. Alex recently wrote a book, Tailor Made where she tells her story of how she dealt with a variety of labels she faced as...

Jess teaches art and imagination and has found the process of 'waking up' to bring about healing and...
