We continue tackling this foundation block of preaching in this second exploration of preaching and process. Preaching is often seen as a non-negotiable when it comes to church/spiritual community practice, with a huge value placed on it’s ability to transform individuals and groups.

This episode considers the relation between preaching and the presence of God.

Following the episode on the Bible, Tim and Steve tackle one of the next foundation blocks in institutional religion: preaching. It is often seen as a non-negotiable when it comes to church/spiritual community practice, with a huge value placed on it’s ability to transform individuals and groups.

  • Why is it seen as the pinnacle of so much community practice?
  • Why the high value attributed to it’s transformative ability?
  • What are some of our personal experiences of preaching and it’s impact?
  • What are some of the possible egos and agendas at play in a church dynamic that keeps preaching at the top of the practice pyramid?

This episode puts down some thinking and possibilities on which a subsequent episode can build and focus on how process and embodied relational spirituality may provide much more than preaching in both it’s transformative efficacy and self & community relational integrity.

In this episode Tim and Steve take their first aim at the question of "What do you have to say about the Bible?"

This is a deeply complex subject, so this is both a stand alone episode within Season 5, but also must be understood as an introductory take on this important and multifaceted conversation. 

We hope you enjoy it, and would love to hear your thoughts in response.

In this episode Tim share's the story of his early experience of God, covering the early years of 1987 - 1993. Not everyone's journey begins at the same point in their life and the details will vary considerably. It is important to distinguish our experience of God from what we make of it and how we've been schooled into interpreting and presenting it.

In this episode we introduce a section of episodes in Season 5 in which we share our own answers to the questions we've posed to all of our previous guests. That is, an exploration of our own early experiences of God. We also share some thoughts on why we're introducing them at this point in the season.

There's also 10 bonus points awarded to Gryffindor for the first listener to spot where Tim's timer goes off in the episode. We wanted a tighter timeframe for this intro and so put ourselves under pressure to be more concise than usual :)

In this episode we explore this season as a conversational pilgrimage shared between the hosts, listeners, and conversation partners. We go on to consider that our human-to-human relationships offer insight into our human-to-divine relationship, and therewith honesty in terms of where our relationship really is at.

In this episode we explore the remarkable difference between the silence and absence of God in the spirituality of the beliver and of the mystic-to-be. This is a very important discussion for anyone wanting to gain a sense of God’s drawing near and withdrawing. And especially important for anyone wrestling with a relational disconnect with God.
