Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl
This podcast follows my faith journey, from a black and white view of God and the Bible, to a new understanding of Christianity. I hope my story can be a breath of fresh air for you too.
Season 2: The Hard Conversations
Season 2 begins October 2021 and will feature conversations on hell, LGBTQ+ and social justice with guests Matthew Vines (The Reformation Project), Michael McDonald (The Bible Project), Kat Harris (The Refined Woman), Joshua Butler (The Skeletons in God's Closet) and more!
In Season 2 we are creating space for conversations we don't often have in church circles, to investigate what Scripture says on some issues that I once thought were black and white. In this process, we're especially looking for two things: Fruit and intent. What is the fruit of the old vs new way of thinking? What is the intent of Scripture, and how does the historical and cultural context help us better understand Scripture's intent?
These are the topics I've been studying during my own "deconstruction," as some might call it. (Although you'll hear in Episode 1 why my husband doesn't like that term!) I want to share biblical perspectives that are different than what we always hear in evangelical church circles.
I pray that Season 2 will help us find common ground as Christians, even when we disagree theologically. I pray it will help unify the church and bring relief to others asking questions about these same controversial topics. I pray it won't give easy answers, but will honor God and Scripture's intent - even when that means we might need to see things differently than we always have.
I hope you'll join me each Friday for a new episode!
