Grace & Finding Home with Tia Thomas

What does it mean to find home where you least expect it? For Tia Thomas, it meant moving in with her partner, children, her parents, and siblings. When the pressures of life became too great, Tia and her partner felt their best chance for success as a family unit was to take the awkward risk of living with her parents. Today, Tia is telling us the story of the pressure, the beauty, and all the in-between that helped her learn how to come home again.

Grace & The Depths with John Chaffee

This conversation is RICH with growth hierarchies, insight, quotes, and the enneagram! These days, John Chaffee is a modern day mystic, teaching contemplative Christian spirituality at Eastern University and holding space for anyone asking big, unanswerable questions. But his story is about the ambush of eucatastrophes he experienced hiking the Appalachian Trail and how this adventure revolutionized his life. Also, I wish this conversation was about six hours longer!

Grace & Justice with Micah Morgan

We all love the idea of justice, but do we really know what it means? In today’s conversation, we are briefly unpacking the nuance and impact of the old testament book of Micah. Our guest is licensed professional counselor & associate pastor Micah Morgan, who is reimagining humanity in a way that allows us to live with justice as a way of life instead of as an occasional act of perceived obedience in our culture wars.

Grace & The Margins with Rohadi

Author and speaker Rohadi is an insightful and intentional thought leader building diverse communities, church planting, and teaching on decolonizing and deconstructing Christianity. His latest book, titled When We Belong: Reclaiming Christianity on the Margins, is a beautiful challenge to anyone claiming the mantle of Christianity. In our conversation today, we delve into what church can look like when we learn to embrace an embodied ethic of justice on behalf of all humans – not just the ones who are familiar.
