Church planting pastors Cindy Riley, Josh Cramer, Laura Tarro, and Noah Filipiak have a raw conversation about the ups and downs of church planting.
Is your faith going through a crisis because of unhealth you see in the contemporary model of church? Or are you a ministry leader worn out from “putting on the show” week after week? Then this conversation between Dr. Peter Sung and Noah Filipiak is for you.
Noah interviews Dr. Alan Noble about his new book On Getting Out of Bed: The Burden & Gift of Living (InterVarsity Press). They discuss the daily realities of suffering and depression contrasted with the church’s tendency to fake it like everything is okay and that if you do things God’s way, he will fix everything.
Episode 38 takes us to a recent sermon Noah did on Luke 7:36-50, where a “sinful woman” anoints Jesus’ feet with her hair and tears. This interruption of an elite dinner party led a Pharisee, Jesus, and this woman to have to each make a crucial choice. Their choices are choices that each of us face as well.
