Noah and Pastor Juanita Rasmus have a conversation around how to live in the unmerited love of God when everything inside of us says we need to perform in order to be accepted. Juanita is the author of Learning to Be: Finding Your Center After the Bottom Falls Out and is a pastor who endured a 9-month crash following ministry burnout. Listen in to discover the freeing truths of Jesus’ love that she found at the bottom of the pit and learn the tools and rhythms you need to start experiencing this freedom here and now.
In Spring 2023, I realized I had too much on my plate. I was pastoring Mosaic Church full-time, the multi-ethnic church I planted in urban Grand Rapids, MI. I was directing new Beyond the Battle 7-week groups and shepherding our growing BtB alumni community. This included weekly Zoom meetings, pastoral care and counseling, and retreats. I was also directing New Humanity, a multi-ethnic church planting network with a focus on urban community development. Oh and I wanted time to do my podcast and writing!

Gregory Coles shares about being a gay, celibate, single Christian. Noah and Greg dive deep into the church’s sexual ethic in a conversation that will stretch you and make you think, and hopefully open you up to a deeper understanding of how to love LGBTQ+ people.
