Matthew 12.49-50 NLT Jesus pointed to his disciples and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!” We know very little about Jesus' family. On this occasion we hear that they had come to see him and wanted to speak with him. By this time it seems that Joseph was dead and so Mary came with Jesus' brothers and sisters. Jesus used the moment to point out that his real family was made up of those who were obedient to his Father's will. Blood relationships are important and the Old Testament law made clear the fundamental responsibility that we all have for our birth families, but what matters far more is obedience to God's will. Belonging is fundamental to our well-being. We all need to have the security of knowing where we belong. Many people in our society have had a disappointing experience of family life. They have felt let down and some have been abused and rejected. But whether our experiences of family life have been bad or good, our human families are temporary and fragile. That is why it is so important for us to become children of our eternal heavenly Father. Jesus himself knew what it was to be rejected by his own people. In his Gospel John says that “to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.” (John 1.12-13) Through being born again, all of us are able to enter into the family of God and know security for time and eternity. Being a part of the family of God is miraculous in every way. It connects us with all those in history who have lived the life of faith, and it also binds us together with all those who love him throughout our world today. On many occasions I have travelled to other parts of the world and not shared a common language with the Christians I have met. In a beautiful way it hasn't seemed to matter. I have spent many, many hours sitting through times of worship in languages completely unknown to me. What has mattered is that we are family. We belong and always will do. QUESTION: In what ways are you blessed by belonging to God's eternal family? PRAYER: Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for my brothers and sisters around the world today. Thank you for my unity with them. Amen

If you've been single for any portion of your adult life—and especially if this solo season has lasted longer than you hoped it would—you've felt the ache of loneliness. You've watched happy couples and wondered when you'll meet your partner. You've likely slipped into fear—what if you never meet your person? What if you never “belong” to anyone? Leisse Wilcox gets it. She's felt these feelings—deeply. And, at 40, she continues to wrestle with a post-divorce, post-cancer diagnosis life that looks nothing like she expected it would. As a writer, Leisse has unpacked this struggle in her new book, Alone: The Truth + Beauty of Belonging. Our conversation today can be summarized by my review of Leisse's book. “Part memoir, part self-help guide, part love letter to anyone aching with loneliness, Alone: The Truth + Beauty of Belonging assures us that though we may not choose to be alone, we absolutely choose the meaning we ascribe to our solitude. Through potent reframes e.g., What if self-care became soul care? and It's the feeling you want, not the thing you want, Leisse emboldens us to embrace the truth that ‘when you belong to yourself, you are never really alone.'” Spielmann, S., MacDonald, G., Maxwell, J., Joel, S., Peragine, D., Muise, A., & Impett, E. (2013). Settling for less out of fear of being single. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 105, 1049-1073.

This conversation meanders through the different symbolism both of us see when we think of the lantern. For Sarah, it's time alone and going within.

It has been a shocking time in cricket following the Azeem Rafiq whistleblowing case. What's clear is that this is not just about cricket – it's about sport and wider society in general. We all have a duty to make our team members feel safe and included. As Nelson Mandela said, “sport has the power to change the world, it is more powerful than governments. It speaks to people in a language they understand – sport creates hope where once there was despair.” I reflect in this episode how sport is so powerful, what we can learn from the Ubuntu philosophy, and the need for everyone to feel included .Tune in to this episode as I share some empowering advice from Business Psychologists Binna and Jo Kandola about the positive aspects of inclusivity and how to create a fair and inclusive environment. We also hear from Owen Eastwood, author of the critically acclaimed book ‘Belonging', about how to sustain and celebrate diverse cultures.

In this week's episode, Austin and Shelby continue their discussion of the Dwarven Empire, at least what's left of it. This week's episode focuses on the other two remaining great thaigs of Thedas, Kal-Sharok and Kal'Hirol. If you haven't dug deep into the codex and played Dragon Age Awakening, you might not be familiar with Kal-Sharok or Kal'Hirol. But these two thaigs, especially Kal-Sharok, have an interesting history that leads us to some major speculations and unanswered questions.

So what is it that makes a CSA member stick? Is it having a high quality product? Or is there something more? In today's episode, I let you peek in on an interview I have with one of my "ideal" CSA customers. I try to understand what drives him to be so loyal to my CSA. We unpack the meaning of community and belonging, and why managing this in a membership is so vital for success. Are you cultivating a feeling of belonging in your CSA?...
So much is changing in how, when and where we work and do business, and the leaders that stay committed to the way things have always been done are on the fast track to irrelevance. So what are the leadership skills of tomorrow? How important is the ability to build and lead inclusive teams? Here to discuss these questions and so much more is Dr. Stefanie Johnson - Associate Professor at the Lead School of Business at CU Boulder, who's received several millions in grant funding to study leadership. She works with big name companies to implement evidence based practices and increase inclusion, and is the author of the national best seller, “Inclusify - Harnessing the Power of Uniqueness and Belonging to Build Innovative Teams.” The time has come for leaders (men and women alike) to lead. We can no longer delegate the work of inclusion, invest in one and done type solutions or “kick this can down the road” any further. It will require an investment of time, energy, commitment and money. It will also require leaders to be willing to get uncomfortable, to be willing to say “I don't know,” and to do an honest accounting of where they're falling short. It's a good thing being a leader requires us to do what is right, not just what is easy.

Last week we celebrated National Take a Hike Day, and today on the show we're continuing our celebrations of the Hike Your Turf campaign in partnership with our friends at Merrell. All month long, we've been discussing the importance of getting outside and the need for equitable access to parks, trails, green spaces and more. On today's episode, I'm so excited to welcome one of Merrell's ambassadors to chat about her journey to becoming an outdoor leader, advocate and community builder. Jenny Bruso is the founder of Unlikely Hikers, which is an incredible community she created when she discovered a connection with nature, but found outdoor culture to be hostile to those who don't fit the white, straight-size, cishet-normative, able-bodied mold. Unlikely Hikers is a diverse, anti-racist, body-liberating outdoor community featuring the underrepresented outdoorsperson. I'm so grateful to Jenny for joining me on the show to discuss how this community is creating a sense of belonging for people who are often underrepresented or made to feel like they don't have a place in outdoor spaces. Tune in to the full episode below to learn more about Jenny and her inspiration behind creating Unlikely Hikers. You'll also learn: How Jenny reframes what it means to be “outdoorsy.” How Unlikely Hikers is showing the diverse ways people are getting outside and creating space for the underrepresented outdoorsperson. How the changing seasons are a great metaphor for the changes we go through in life. The importance of honoring Indigenous communities and acknowledging the stolen lands we are recreating on. How Jenny feels when she hears someone went on their first hike because of something they saw on Unlikely Hikers. Why we should challenge the notion of “being our best selves” all the time and just do the best with what we've got, and a whole lot more good stuff!

In this episode, I share how I was able to transition my online presence from a healthy living blogger to functional nutrition (FDN-P) entrepreneur. It definitely wasn't easy, and I struggled for years before hiring a business coach. At times, I felt defeated, frustrated, and confused. I was constantly second-guessing what I was doing and not getting the results that I wanted. Accountability and clarity from my coach and mastermind community were the key factors in helping me transition Carrots 'N' Cake to what it is today. I couldn't have done it without a coach and supportive community. Clearly, I do well with external accountability… having a deadline from my business coach, being accountable to the women in my mastermind… I still have to show up and do the work, yes, but it's much easier for me to NOT give up when I know I have someone checking in with me. For me it's not necessarily about the education or resources; it's more about the accountability, support, guidance, and clarity that my coaches provide. There is SO much nutrition and fitness information out there. To the point where it's easy to get paralyzed and not do ANYTHING, which makes things even more challenging when “life happens”. Having a support system in place is key to pulling many of us back on track, especially when you have a case of the “fuck its.” Belonging to a group with similar goals is a great strategy to help you stick with your healthy living goals. Your environment and the people who you surround yourself with matter a LOT. Right now, enrollment is open for the Carrot 'N' Cake Lifestyle Membership. The Carrots ‘N' Cake Lifestyle Membership is ideal for you if you know what to do but you would like to have a plan and expert-level support for when your motivation wanes and it feels all too tempting to give up on your goals.

Where and to whom do we belong? Is this a practical, existential or being comfortable in your own skin question? In this gentle tea, Rach & Lorien explore personal stories, asking how we each belong and what is belonging? It has a big aha moment at the end after they wrestle with why at times we may not feel belonging. Both lived expat & local lives where they faced this question "fitting in" at home and abroad. 2 old friends have a cup of tea to explore perspectives on being human. This pod touches on: Expat lives, international development, family & home. It looks like we could be moving towards a spiritual journey.

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 110 Psalm 110 (Listen) Sit at My Right Hand A Psalm of David. 110 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!3 Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power,1 in holy garments;2 from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.34 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” 5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs4 over the wide earth.7 He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head. Footnotes  110:3 Or on the day you lead your forces  110:3 Masoretic Text; some Hebrew manuscripts and Jerome on the holy mountains  110:3 The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain  110:6 Or the head (ESV) Pentateuch and History: 2 Kings 18 2 Kings 18 (Listen) Hezekiah Reigns in Judah 18 In the third year of Hoshea son of Elah, king of Israel, Hezekiah the son of Ahaz, king of Judah, began to reign. 2 He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Abi the daughter of Zechariah. 3 And he did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done. 4 He removed the high places and broke the pillars and cut down the Asherah. And he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the people of Israel had made offerings to it (it was called Nehushtan).1 5 He trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel, so that there was none like him among all the kings of Judah after him, nor among those who were before him. 6 For he held fast to the LORD. He did not depart from following him, but kept the commandments that the LORD commanded Moses. 7 And the LORD was with him; wherever he went out, he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and would not serve him. 8 He struck down the Philistines as far as Gaza and its territory, from watchtower to fortified city. 9 In the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah, king of Israel, Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it, 10 and at the end of three years he took it. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11 The king of Assyria carried the Israelites away to Assyria and put them in Halah, and on the Habor, the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes, 12 because they did not obey the voice of the LORD their God but transgressed his covenant, even all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded. They neither listened nor obeyed. Sennacherib Attacks Judah 13 In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them. 14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, “I have done wrong; withdraw from me. Whatever you impose on me I will bear.” And the king of Assyria required of Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents2 of silver and thirty talents of gold. 15 And Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD and in the treasuries of the king's house. 16 At that time Hezekiah stripped the gold from the doors of the temple of the LORD and from the doorposts that Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid and gave it to the king of Assyria. 17 And the king of Assyria sent the Tartan, the Rab-saris, and the Rabshakeh with a great army from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. When they arrived, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which is on the highway to the Washer's Field. 18 And when they called for the king, there came out to them Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebnah the secretary, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder. 19 And the Rabshakeh said to them, “Say to Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria: On what do you rest this trust of yours? 20 Do you think that mere words are strategy and power for war? In whom do you now trust, that you have rebelled against me? 21 Behold, you are trusting now in Egypt, that broken reed of a staff, which will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it. Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him. 22 But if you say to me, “We trust in the LORD our God,” is it not he whose high places and altars Hezekiah has removed, saying to Judah and to Jerusalem, “You shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem”? 23 Come now, make a wager with my master the king of Assyria: I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders on them. 24 How then can you repulse a single captain among the least of my master's servants, when you trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 25 Moreover, is it without the LORD that I have come up against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, “Go up against this land and destroy it.”'” 26 Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebnah, and Joah, said to the Rabshakeh, “Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we understand it. Do not speak to us in the language of Judah within the hearing of the people who are on the wall.” 27 But the Rabshakeh said to them, “Has my master sent me to speak these words to your master and to you, and not to the men sitting on the wall, who are doomed with you to eat their own dung and to drink their own urine?” 28 Then the Rabshakeh stood and called out in a loud voice in the language of Judah: “Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria! 29 Thus says the king: ‘Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you out of my3 hand. 30 Do not let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD by saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.' 31 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: ‘Make your peace with me4 and come out to me. Then each one of you will eat of his own vine, and each one of his own fig tree, and each one of you will drink the water of his own cistern, 32 until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey, that you may live, and not die. And do not listen to Hezekiah when he misleads you by saying, “The LORD will deliver us.” 33 Has any of the gods of the nations ever delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? 34 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivvah? Have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? 35 Who among all the gods of the lands have delivered their lands out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?'” 36 But the people were silent and answered him not a word, for the king's command was, “Do not answer him.” 37 Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebna the secretary, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn and told him the words of the Rabshakeh. Footnotes  18:4 Nehushtan sounds like the Hebrew for both bronze and serpent  18:14 A talent was about 75 pounds or 34 kilograms  18:29 Hebrew his  18:31 Hebrew Make a blessing with me (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: Isaiah 7–8 Isaiah 7–8 (Listen) Isaiah Sent to King Ahaz 7 In the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, son of Uzziah, king of Judah, Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah the king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not yet mount an attack against it. 2 When the house of David was told, “Syria is in league with1 Ephraim,” the heart of Ahaz2 and the heart of his people shook as the trees of the forest shake before the wind. 3 And the LORD said to Isaiah, “Go out to meet Ahaz, you and Shear-jashub3 your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool on the highway to the Washer's Field. 4 And say to him, ‘Be careful, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint because of these two smoldering stumps of firebrands, at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria and the son of Remaliah. 5 Because Syria, with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, has devised evil against you, saying, 6 “Let us go up against Judah and terrify it, and let us conquer it4 for ourselves, and set up the son of Tabeel as king in the midst of it,” 7 thus says the Lord GOD: “‘It shall not stand, and it shall not come to pass.8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin. And within sixty-five years Ephraim will be shattered from being a people.9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you5 are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all.'” The Sign of Immanuel 10 Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz: 11 “Ask a sign of the LORD your6 God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven.” 12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, and I will not put the LORD to the test.” 13 And he7 said, “Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.8 15 He shall eat curds and honey when he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16 For before the boy knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land whose two kings you dread will be deserted. 17 The LORD will bring upon you and upon your people and upon your father's house such days as have not come since the day that Ephraim departed from Judah—the king of Assyria!” 18 In that day the LORD will whistle for the fly that is at the end of the streams of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria. 19 And they will all come and settle in the steep ravines, and in the clefts of the rocks, and on all the thornbushes, and on all the pastures.9 20 In that day the Lord will shave with a razor that is hired beyond the River10—with the king of Assyria—the head and the hair of the feet, and it will sweep away the beard also. 21 In that day a man will keep alive a young cow and two sheep, 22 and because of the abundance of milk that they give, he will eat curds, for everyone who is left in the land will eat curds and honey. 23 In that day every place where there used to be a thousand vines, worth a thousand shekels11 of silver, will become briers and thorns. 24 With bow and arrows a man will come there, for all the land will be briers and thorns. 25 And as for all the hills that used to be hoed with a hoe, you will not come there for fear of briers and thorns, but they will become a place where cattle are let loose and where sheep tread. The Coming Assyrian Invasion 8 Then the LORD said to me, “Take a large tablet and write on it in common characters,12 ‘Belonging to Maher-shalal-hash-baz.'13 2 And I will get reliable witnesses, Uriah the priest and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah, to attest for me.” 3 And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the LORD said to me, “Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4 for before the boy knows how to cry ‘My father' or ‘My mother,' the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away before the king of Assyria.” 5 The LORD spoke to me again: 6 “Because this people has refused the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, and rejoice over Rezin and the son of Remaliah, 7 therefore, behold, the Lord is bringing up against them the waters of the River,14 mighty and many, the king of Assyria and all his glory. And it will rise over all its channels and go over all its banks, 8 and it will sweep on into Judah, it will overflow and pass on, reaching even to the neck, and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.” 9 Be broken,15 you peoples, and be shattered;16 give ear, all you far countries; strap on your armor and be shattered; strap on your armor and be shattered.10 Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.17 Fear God, Wait for the Lord 11 For the LORD spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: 12 “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. 13 But the LORD of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he will become a sanctuary and a stone of offense and a rock of stumbling to both houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many shall stumble on it. They shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.” 16 Bind up the testimony; seal the teaching18 among my disciples. 17 I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are signs and portents in Israel from the LORD of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion. 19 And when they say to you, “Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the teaching and to the testimony! If they will not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn. 21 They will pass through the land,19 greatly distressed and hungry. And when they are hungry, they will be enraged and will speak contemptuously against20 their king and their God, and turn their faces upward. 22 And they will look to the earth, but behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish. And they will be thrust into thick darkness.

That he will not come to the feast at all?” 57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where he was, he should let them know, so that they might arrest him. Mary Anoints Jesus at Bethany 12 Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 So they gave a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those reclining with him at table. 3 Mary therefore took a pound2 of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said, 5 “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii3 and given to the poor?” 6 He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it. 7 Jesus said, “Leave her alone, so that she may keep it4 for the day of my burial. 8 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” The Plot to Kill Lazarus 9 When the large crowd of the Jews learned that Jesus5 was there, they came, not only on account of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. 10 So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, 11 because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus. The Triumphal Entry 12 The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written, 15 “Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt!” 16 His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. 17 The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had done this sign. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.” Footnotes  11:56 Greek were seeking for  12:3 Greek litra; a litra (or Roman pound) was equal to about 11 1/2 ounces or 327 grams  12:5 A denarius was a day's wage for a laborer  12:7 Or Leave her alone; she intended to keep it  12:9 Greek he (ESV)

In this episode, Austin and Shelby begin a two-episode arc on the Dwarven Empire, or at least what's left of it. They discuss Orzammar, and a few outlying thaigs, including Amgarrak, Aeducan, Ortan, and Bownammar. They also take a look at how the Empire got to where it is today--once a massive, immeasurably powerful kingdom spanning almost more of Thedas than the Tevinter Imperium. You might be wondering if the Dwarven Empire can even be called an Empire still, or you might be wondering how sustainable is life under the surface. We'll answer these questions and more throughout this episode.

It's the fundamental lie of modern life, says Alan Noble: that we are our own. Compared to our ancestors, we're less worried about war. We're less worried about starvation and famine. But by believing that we are our own, we tend to struggle with new problems: the loss of meaning, identity, and purpose.Noble says this in his new book, You Are Not Your Own: Belonging to God in an Inhuman World, published by InterVarsity:Everyone is on their own private journey of self-discovery and self-expression so that at times, modern life feels like billions of people in the same room shouting their name so that everyone else knows they exist and who they are—which is a fairly accurate description of social media.Noble's book feels like a douse of cold water that wakes us from our delusion. His book builds off the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism. And he helps us find our way back to this well-worn path of divine wisdom. He writes, “Our selves belong to God, and we are joyfully limited and restrained by the obligations, virtues, and love that naturally come from this belonging.”Noble is assistant professor of English at Oklahoma Baptist University and co-founder and editor in chief of Christ and Pop Culture. You may know his previous work, Disruptive Witness: Speaking Truth in a Distracted Age.
