The Forum Podcast: The Desire To Be Powerful + Finding Your Purpose + Praying for Politicians

On this week's show we look at why so much of our church culture seems to buy into society's idea of what it means to be powerful, rather than what Jesus modelled. We talked with Jamin Goggin about his book 'The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb'.

We were also joined by the editor of 'Inside Out' magazine Ellery Sadler to talk about how your calling doesn't define you. While we can be called by God to certain things like jobs or relationships, they aren't what give us value and purpose.

Plus we talk with Peter Northcutt about the reasons we use the 'heretic' label, and the Rev. Frank Ritchie is in studio to talk about how to respond to politics and politicans.

Tune in Sunday night from 8pm.


The Forum Podcast: Why Bother Praying + Should Christians Swear + Doubting Your Faith

Prayer is important. But if we're being honest, it can also be pretty hard. On the Forum this week Thomas Christianson from joined us for a conversation on what Jesus said about prayer and how prayer can be more than a wish list of things we want from God.

Also on this week's show, we talk with Frank Ritchie about Christians and swearing, what the Bible says about profanity, and how can we use our language to build others up rather than tear them down. Plus Andrew Urquhart is in to talk about dealing with a tough situation: doubting your faith in God.

Tune in Sunday night from 8pm.

Tune in Sunday night from 8pm.
