Welcome to episode 97 of The Grace Cafe Podcast. This episode is a free-flowing conversation about our own detox from institutional religion and ways our thinking has changed over the years as we’ve distanced ourselves from performance-based Christianity and religious obligation. Our conversation revealed to us how much influence, control, and manipulation organized religion can have over us, all in the name of Jesus, while keeping us from fully experiencing Jesus. We hope you find encouragement in this episode as you listen in.
This is our last episode for 2020. Starting in 2021, we will be dropping two episodes per month. We hope your holiday celebrations are the very best and we will see you again in 2021.
Welcome to episode 58 of The Grace Cafe Podcast! I (Mike) managed to finish editing this episode which is a conversation with two of our friends who live in Chattanooga Tennessee, USA. We hadn’t enjoyed a face-to-face conversation with Chris Stapleton (not the country musician) and Josh Scott (he’s not a country musician either) in about a year, so we got them on the line and recorded it. Yes, they knew we were recording it. Our conversation went all over the place so I’m just calling this episode Chattanooga Chat. Because self-control seemed to go out the window, we’re rating this episode E, as in not for everyone.
