Trigger Warning: This episode heavily centers on discussions of suicide, depression, and anxiety. Sarah Robinson knows what it feels like to want to die. And that's exactly what inspired her to write the blog post that changed her life: I love Jesus, but I want to die. The post went viral and later turned into Sarah's book of the same name, making her one of today's leading voices on depression and suicide in the Christian community. On this last episode of Suicide Prevention month, Lathan sits down with Sarah as she shares her story. Sarah and Lathan have a mutual friend in the late Steve Austin, and together they talk about his life, how the church can act more like Jesus when it comes to suicide, being a friend to those struggling, and how to be strategic about self-care, especially as a parent. This has been a powerful month of conversations from people who have been on the front lines of the fight against suicide—make sure to give Sarah's episode a listen.

Trigger Warning: This episode heavily centers on discussions of suicide, depression, and anxiety. In this second week of diving into September's theme of suicide prevention and awareness, Lathan invites arist and author Scott Erickson onto the show to talk about his own mental health battles. Scott was a good friend of Steve Austin's, and together Scott and Lathan listen to clips from Steve's interview with Lathan to unpack their own understanding of the “psych ward church” and how we can bring that recovery group mentality to the American church today. Throughout the episode the two talk about the practices Scott employs to combat those feelings of depression and anxiety, why we need to stop telling those who deal with suicidal ideations that they just need to “do the work,” and how we can practically minister to those suffering from depression. Scott ends the episode with a hopeful word for all those thinking about taking their own life.

This episode is a heavier one, but it points to Steve's belief that depression can affect us all, even those we put up on pedestals, like pastors.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and with that in mind Lathan sets the table for this month's episodes of TOSOTC podcast. Suicide is a heavy reality, and one, tragically, many of us can relate to. Lathan's good friend, the late Steve Austin died by suicide last summer, and it's with his loss in mind that Lathan will be centering September's conversations around suicide prevention and what we can do about it. Over a year ago, this podcast was supposed to launch with Lathan and Steve's conversation, but that changed with Steve's death. Lathan has been holding on to that interview until now, and next week he'll release it as a way to honor Steve. The other episodes this month come from Steve's good friends Scott Erickson and Sarah Robinson—two people who knew him well and seek to honor his life through their words. This month is a heavier one for all of us, but these conversations are also a challenge to do something about the stigma around depression and anxiety, especially in the church. September Guests: Steve Austin (September 14th) Scott Erickson (September 21st) Sarah Robinson (September 28th)

On this week's episode of The Other Side of the Church podcast, Lathan talks with Amy about her journey from adolescence to diagnosis, how her disability colors the way she reads Scripture, and the idea of wheelchairs in Heaven. This is an important conversation for anyone in church leadership who wants to stop treating the disabled individuals in their congregation as “other,” but really it's an important conversation for all of us who not only desire to empathize with Amy's story, but also make the necessary changes to create a better world for every person living with a disability.

August has arrived, and with it Lathan and his wife will welcome their identical twin girls (any day now!). On this month's Setting the Table episode, Lathan lays out the theme for the month: disability awareness. The church as we know it doesn't always minister well to people with disabilities, or it fails to acknowledge those disabilities altogether. The stories and perspectives Lathan will share throughout August shed light on those individuals and the challenges they face while at the same time emphasizing that we're all image-bearers of God. That conversation on disability and the church will kick off next week with author Amy Kenny and her incredible story. Pull up a seat at the table for August on The Other Side of the Church!

Creating a place where everyone feels safe, including the “misfits” of society—whores, drug addicts, child molesters, sinners—is no easy task, especially in today's political and social climate.

We're switching things up on The Other Side of the Church podcast and doing something a little different each month from here on out. On this first episode of July, Lathan “sets the table” for what's going to be happening on the podcast for the rest of the month: the guests he'll talk with, what topics they'll cover, and the themes that color the heart of these conversations. Lathan starts off this month's Setting the Table episode by filling us in on what's happening in the Craft household (twin girls arriving in August and the Craft's initiation into the minivan club!), and shares about how you can stay connected with The Other Side of the Church on Instagram (you can follow Lathan at @lathanwc if you aren't already). We've all been affected by the recent mass shootings in our country and the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and these issues and other warrant discussions on how to be a Christ follower in the current social climate and why pain so often has to become personal before we do anything about it. These topics and others will show up in Lathan's July interviews—challenging not only how we interact with politics and people, but also how we love those who are different from us. Grab your seat at the table for July's The Other Side of the Church episodes! July Guests: Dr. E. (July 13th) Pastor Adam Weber (July 20th) KJ Ramsey (July 27th)

Anger is something the majority of men deal with over the course of their lifetime, but how do we harness an emotion that's most often seen as destructive into God's vision of righteous anger? Coach and podcaster Joseph Warren has a few ideas. After living through a childhood colored by the anger of his father, Joseph saw that same pattern becoming true in his own life as he battled sex addiction and pornography. It was only when he reframed his view of anger and fell in love with God as a good Father that Joseph was able to harness his anger for God's glory.
