In this episode Heather begins our three-part series of conversations with evangelical thought leaders who are challenging us to reconsider some of our long-held beliefs about God. We're calling this pod-class series “Things You May Be Getting Wrong About God.” If you missed last week's episode, you may want to go back to hear Heather's personal reflections on the theme and why she hopes you'll join her on this journey. But be forewarned: As its title suggests, this pod-class series is designed to challenge and stretch you.  This week Heather sits down with Beth Allison Barr, the bestselling author of The Making of Biblical Womanhood. With a proven record of sparking intense but important conversations about the role of women in the church, Professor Barr is here to talk about what we may be getting wrong about how God sees women.  We also visit with social media whiz Brady Shearer for this week's #Blessed. He gives us three things you need to know before starting an online platform and explains why we shouldn't try to go viral. Doesn't he know what show he's on? Brady is the director of Pro Church Tools and the church-software platform Nucleus. His work focuses on helping churches navigate the biggest communication shift in 500 years. Make sure to let us know your thoughts about this segment by typing in ViralJesusPod on Instagram or Twitter and including #Blessed with your comment..

It's our first new episode of 2023, and Heather opens the new year by introducing our latest pod-class series, “Things You May Be Getting Wrong About God.” She shares thoughts from Isaiah 30, a passage of Scripture she'd been reading in worship that prompted her to confront some of her shortsighted ideas about how God was moving in her life. In addition to her own personal reflections, over the next few episodes Heather will talk to three different evangelical theologians about God's active role in the world and in our lives. In this episode, we also visit with Brady Shearer for this week's #Blessed. Heather and Brady discuss a trend in social media that signals what Brady calls “the collapse of curation on digital platforms.” Brady is the director of Pro Church Tools and church software platform Nucleus.

In today's episode Heather sits down with Jonathan Evans to talk about his latest book, Fighting Your Battles: Every Christian's Playbook for Victory. In this conversation Jonathan describes a God who has often “unsettled” him. What do we do when life brings us conflict and disappointment instead of comfort and security? It starts, Jonathan says, by realizing that Christian maturity is not independence but dependence. Jonathan, the son of Tony Evans and his late wife Lois, shares openly about his mother's long battle with terminal illness and his family's struggle with grief.

H. E. President Surangel S. Whipps, Jr. is the 10th President of the Republic of Palau ( https://www.palaugov.pw/executive-branch/president/ ). President Whipps was formerly a two-term Senator having served in the 8th and 9th Olbiil Era Kelulau (OEK, Palau National Congress) from 2009 through 2016. His Senate report card maintains his reputable record in policy making to promote and protect the best interests of Palauans, including: conducting more than 100 oversight hearings to promote transparency and accountability in delivery of government services, spearheading the first bill introduced in the 9th OEK that became law to increase the minimum wage since its enactment in 1997, and most recently, balancing Palau's focus on developing and promoting human resources and fostering their economy, while striking a balance in the protection of the environment, putting the Palauan people first. Prior to his career in politics, President Whipps had over 30 years of private sector experience managing one of the largest growing companies in Palau. As CEO and president of the Surangel and Sons Company, he led the expansion from a one floor store with 50 employees, to a diversified company employing over six-hundred people. President Whipps grew up in a family business that started with his parents improvising to sustain their living by opening a restaurant, fishing and selling their catch, taking tourists out to the rock islands and diving, and selling goods out of their house. President Whipps' experience is combined with his formal background earning a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in economics from Andrews University in Michigan and an MBA from Anderson Graduate School of Management at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). President Whippsʻ slogan - “A Kot a Rechand er Belau” (Palauan People First) actually originated from his father, who was active in the Save Palau movement to protect Palauʻs marine resources, and who ran for congress many times before being elected. In response to unfair treatment in the workplace, lack of career opportunities for Palauans, challenges hindering young Palauan entrepreneurs, and the unchecked exploitation of Palauʻs national resources, the slogan represented conviction that Palauans must reap the opportunities Palau has to offer, and the commitment to push for the improved welfare of Palauans to be foremost in their country by their government.

This week we are making space to hear Nathon Hilton's story of being disfellowshipped at his church due to the affirmation of himself and other gay Christians. We also discuss his work in which he looks at the Androgyny of Christ in Scripture, along with other ways that marginalized identities throughout history have made space for their existence by finding their own stories in the narrative of the Bible. Nathon holds a Master of Arts in Comparative Literature and Literary Theory from the University of Salamanca in Spain, in addition to a BA in English and Theology from Andrews University. He is currently translating Alicia Johnston's book “The Bible and LGBTQ Adventists" into Spanish and focusing his studies on the philosophical and theoretical intersections of literature, religion, and spirituality. I first met Nathon a few years ago back at Andrews, and I am excited to have him share his personal journey of faith through the LGBTQ lens as well as some of his contributions to the world of queer theology.

Hey hey! Today's episode is a must-listen! The cancel culture of the world today makes it tricky to navigate relationships, doesn't it? Listen in as I chat with Seth and Heather Thompson Day about these issues on the show.  Seth and Heather provide a framework of what the Bible says about showing up for one another—even when we feel like giving up. They also share just how important it is to stop waiting for the “perfect” time to move forward in our lives. Heather Thompson Day is an Associate Professor of Communication at Andrews University. She is passionate about supporting women and runs an online community called I'm That Wife, which has over two hundred thousand followers. Heather's writing has been featured on outlets like TODAY and the National Communication Association. She believes her calling is to stand in the gaps of our churches for young people. She is the author of seven books, including It's Not Your Turn and Confessions of a Christian Wife. Seth Day is a graduate student of Educational Psychology. He has been a pastor and campus chaplain. His background in Human Service Counseling and ministry brings an important spiritual component to their most recent book, I'll See You Tomorrow.  Listen in to hear all about: How communication drives relationships and what it means to be wired to be in relationships with other people. How messages and experiences we have in childhood affect our relationships into adulthood  What weak ties are and how we can value them in our lives. Favorite quotes: ~Our experiences in life, what we go through as children; we are constantly seeking affection. We  are going to adapt our coping styles to whatever way helps us get that affection and the unfortunate part is that we carry this to our adult relationships. ~It starts with you! I can only control what I choose to do. The reality is it starts with YOU making the commitment to start living life again ~Narcissists don't want love, they want adoration. ~Weak ties matter. If we spend all our time saying we don't have any best friend  relationships we will miss the relationships that we have. ~People who are part of a church community are healthier and happier.

Dr. Chavez is a quantitative methods scholar of International Security and Conflict, so she brings a her own collected data to the study of drones and violent non-state actors. She defines these terms for us, and we talk a little bit about how she collected those data. Kerry is a co-author of a recent War on the Rocks article (with Ori Swed, former Israeli SF) called "Weak States and Loose Arms: Lessons and Warnings from Afghanistan to Ukraine" published July 12, 2022, which is the subject of much or our discussion here. Here's a link to that article, here : https://warontherocks.com/2022/07/weak-states-and-loose-arms-lessons-and-warnings-from-libya-to-ukraine/ Dr. Chavez did some of her graduate work at St. Andrews University in Scotland, which I learned during this interview is not called "Street Andrews", like on a mailing address.

We're back with another installment of our Faith Shakers series–talking to people who are doing work in the name of faith in “not so typical places,” using nontraditional ways to bring life and light to people's lives. One of the not so typical places people of faith are congregating more than ever is on social media. So many of us have a love/hate relationship with the medium. Sometimes it gives us the feeling of connection and community–especially during times where connection in person isn't possible (remember the pandemic lockdown, everyone?). Other times, it can be a source of stress, a place where we're constantly comparing ourselves to others, an alternate reality of only our “best selves” shown to the world through carefully curated content. Religion, faith and spirituality have their place on social media, and with emerging generations–millennials, Gen X'ers–many have never known life without it. But how do we navigate that quality of instant gratification that social media so readily supplies and find true connection and community that will challenge us, instruct us, and maybe even pastor us in the digital space?  This week's guest has done a lot of work looking at and studying digital communication spaces, and she is here to pass on what she has found so that we can better know the power of digital  communication and make social connections that are positive, productive and beneficial. Heather Thompson Day is the host of Viral Jesus, a podcast that discusses these very things. She's also an associate professor of communication at Andrews University and she's intent on serving students and women in navigating the digital space toward the best possible end–good self image, finding conviction and even handling disagreements. This isn't your grandma's Sunday school class y'all–Heather gives us the tools to find a whole different way of experiencing our faith through our social channels.    * * *   Thank you to our sponsors!   Chime | Sign up today at chime.com/forthelove to start your trial today.    Noom Mood | Sign up for your trial at noom.com/ftl.    Tiff's Treats Book | Get a $25 credit for Tiff's Treats with the purchase of their new book, It's Not Just Cookies, at cookiedelivery.com/jen.
