059 | Coffee Shop Encounter

Welcome to episode 59 of the Grace Cafe Podcast! After a 3-week road trip to see family and friends, followed by sickness, we’re slowly climbing back into the podcast saddle. This is one of our favorite episodes from our old Known & Loved Podcast. It’s a conversation from a couple of years ago with our friends Greg and Kim about our coffee shop encounter that happened in June of 2015. We’ve known Greg and Kim for close to 30 years but hadn’t seen them for years until our random coffee shop encounter on that June day. Little did any of us know the similarities in our stories that would surface that day as we began to talk.

Here’s the full story…. Enjoy!

036 | Losing Our Identity Only To Find It Again: A Conversation With Greg McInturff

Welcome to the Grace Cafe! This episode is a conversation between Mike and our good friend Greg McInturff. It’s a longer episode than what we usually post. I considered making it into two separate episodes but decided to leave it as one to preserve the continuity of our discussion. We’ve known Greg and his wife Kim for 20+ years. We lost touch with them years ago and were recently reunited only to find out we had been on the same grace journey. Our conversations are always energizing and we invite you to eaves drop on this one and be encouraged.

We talked about so many topics in this episode it’s hard to catalog them all. But here’s a few:

  • Spiritual burnout
  • Institutional Christianity
  • Our true identity
  • Experiencing Jesus
  • What it means to be righteous
  • Religious tradition and obligation
  • Fixing your eyes on Jesus
  • Confessing sin
  • Our expectations of ourselves
  • The Holy Spirit in you
  • And a lot more…

-Enjoy!
