015 | Growing in Grace: A Conversation with Mike Kapler and Joel Brueseke

We’ve been looking forward to sharing this episode with you, and the day has finally arrived. Pull up your favorite chair and your favorite beverage and join us as we talk with Mike Kapler and Joel Brueseke from the Growing in Grace podcast. Our casual conversation took us to places like these:

  • Christ in us and us in Christ
  • The once-for-all forgiveness of sin
  • Our true identity
  • Confession of sin
  • Moralism, legalism, and mental illness that results from law-based living
  • The futility of “do more, try harder” religion
  • The Old Covenant is obsolete. Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant, but we mix the two together

I could go on, but listening is more fun! Links for this episode:

Enjoy!

Episode 11 | Living in the Quiet

Welcome to episode 11 of the Grace Cafe Podcast! In the previous episode, we re-aired our conversation from January, 2016 with Allison Stanley. We called it Living in the Wait because her life seemed to be on hold as she waited to see where things were going to land in the midst of a divorce. This episode is our follow-up conversation with Allison that we recorded yesterday, Feb 6, 2018.

Far from emerging as a Christian superhero following a trial, what most often happens is that in his love, the Father brings us into a quiet place – a normal place where we just get to slow down life’s pace and know him better, experiencing his kindness. We think you’ll be encouraged by our conversation with Allison and we explore her story of moving from living in the wait to living in the quiet.

Enjoy!

Episode 10: Living in the Wait

Welcome to episode 10 of the Grace Cafe Podcast. We’ve crossed over into double digits with this episode. Yay! This episode is one from our old Chief Sinner Podcast from January, 2016 where we had a conversation with a good friend of ours, Allison Stanley. One of the reasons we’re reposting it here is because we’ll be doing a follow-up conversation with Allison that will be posted next week. This episode will give you some background and context for the new one.

When we talked with Allison two years ago, she was in the middle of a divorce and she talked openly and frankly with us about her experiences and what was going on inside and with others around her. You’ll hear her describe the uncertainty of that time and what hope meant in the context of that uncertainty. She described it as living in the wait. We think you’ll be encouraged by what you hear and if you’re in similar circumstances, know you’re not alone.

Enjoy!
