It's been a rough 12 months for the church, and especially for pastors. In this episode, I sat down with a few pastor friends of mine to hear how the last year has been for them. Part of healing as the body of Christ is going to be listening to those who have devoted their time and energy to shepherding the flock. If you enjoy this podcast, be sure…
 
In this week's episode I had four single friends come on the pod and share some of their experiences with the church as singles. Christian communities could be doing better at remembering that marriage and family is not the ultimate goal in life; oneness with Jesus is. As the body of Jesus, we need each other in growing togetehr in oneness with Him…
 
In this week's episode, I sat down with my friend Corey Steiner and talked about the role of music style in the life of a Christian. We talked about grief and sorrow, praise and thanksgiving, and whether or not all music needs to talk about Jesus. Corey is the artist behind the intro and outro music on the podcast. He is currently working to put to…
 
I got to chat with another biblical studies partner about biblical Theology (as opposed to systematic theology) and why it is important for us to understand the storyline of Scripture. Paul Lamicela is a PhD student of Biblical Theology and has a course that he runs each year helping people understand the storyline of the Bible. If you're intereste…
 
I had the privilege of connecting with another new friend over Zoom: Eric Miller. Eric lives in Cincinnati, OH, and is in the middle of a bachelor's of Biblical studies degree as well. So, we talked about all things making disciples, evangelism, and then a bunch of "Biblical studies stuff" like theories of atonement, the nature of hell and more. Oh…
 
Over the last couple of years, as I've spoken more on the topic of sexuality, I invariably have someone who asks me about whether or not mixed swimming among youth is okay. As a part of the Patreon membership of the blog, we do an "Ask Me Anything" article once a month where we respond to any and all questions readers send our way. The catch is tha…
 
What is spiritual warfare? Can things we say get us in trouble in the 'spirit world'? Is it possible for a Christian to be demon possessed? In this episode I sat down with a longtime friend and mentor-figure of mine, Rick Rhodes, and discussed his sermon series "We Win" which addresses Christians and spiritual warfare. Rick is a former administrato…
 
Dave & Gert Slabach pastor Faith Mennonite in southern Virginia. Their church has been setting aside time to grow together as a body in their understanding of the racial tensions in our nation. I sat down with them to hear what they are doing to learn/grow as a body, and how they create a safe environment for people to process what they discover. M…
 
In this week's episode, I connected with Dr. John Waldron to see where we are at with COVID-19. As a family doctor who has practiced medicine for twenty years, Dr. Waldron gives a helpful and hopeful perspective on the pandemic, why masking is a thing, and why some of us might tend to be suspicious of science and medicine. If you find this episode …
 
I had the privilege of sitting down with Daniel and June Pollard and hearing their story and what they wish the church could hear about being black in America and the need for racial reconciliation in our churches. Check out Restorative Faith on Facebook for more resources on race perspectives and relationships, particularly in an Anabaptist contex…
 
Do the means through which we seek to proclaim the Kingdom of God on earth matter? Is voting a proper means through which to do that? In this episode I sit down with Dan Ziegler, Josh Good, and Matthew Milioni and discuss whether Christians should vote, and if not, why they shouldn't vote. What does it mean to be a citizen of the Kingdom of God (wh…

A week ago, I sat down with Reagan Schrock and discussed what churches are doing, and can be doing, during a crisis like COVID-19. He's been working with Anabaptist COVID-19 Response in supplying families and healthcare workers in NYC with food and essential items they need. We also talk a bit about conspiracy theories and better ways to spend our …
 
This week, I connected again with my friend Keeshon Washington to tackle the subject of racism. Well, we didn't really tackle it... there's so much to this conversation that we couldn't get to in just a couple of hours. But we addressed why we need to have conversations about racism, why we should talk with friends of color about their experiences,…

In this episode, I respond to three questions my patrons have submitted: (1) What is keeping you engaged in the conservative Menno vision/mission? (2) What is a Menno to do when there are no healthy Menno churches to attend? (3) Do all people who attend a church need to hold to the same doctrinal beliefs (outside credal beliefs)? If you enjoy the p…

I saw a couple of articles this past week that got me thinking. One talked about a church nativity set that depicted Joseph, Mary and Jesus each in their own cages. It represented the birth of Christ in the context of what's happening at our border today. Is it wrong to do this with a nativity scene? The second article discussed the flaws of the mo…
 
The schedule has been extremely full the last couple of months, and I haven't produced as much content as I had hoped. But I'm excited to share with you today a conversation I had back in October with my friend Keeshon Washington! In this episode we discuss race, Anabaptist churches, inner-city missions, and whether or not one should change their l…
 
In this episode I had the honor of sitting down and chatting with my new friend, Ken Brubacher. He tells his story of discovering as a boy that he was sexually attracted to men, trying to fill a longing for love through sex, and then discovering Jesus for the first time in a casual conversation with a coworker. This isn't some "out-there" secular w…
 
After rambling awhile about life and what's been keeping us busy and sleepless, I introduce today, and share with you, the first episode of another podcast I've been privileged to be a part of this fall: The Third Way Podcast. We explore the political implications of a Jesus-centered theology. My brother, Christopher Witmer, started the podcast wit…
