Sinopsis

If you find yourself on the fringes of Christianity, either looking out or looking in, this is for you. The faith is far more dynamic than it has been commonly shown, and here is my playful and rabbinic attempt to dust it off by looking at today through the eyes of its best from church history as well as today.

    Roadmaps (Pt. 3) - The Biblical Journey

    18/02/2021 Duración: 26min

    The ordering of the books of the Bible, which can be divided into 5 main categories, are ordered in a way that matches how we grow through our own understanding of the faith journey. By looking at these 5 main categories, we can find a "roadmap" through the 5 main ways of thinking about faith. https://johnchaffee.carrd.co/ FREE 8 Week Video Series on 8 Definitions of Sin from Church History: https://astounding-artist-3034.ck.page/4645ccb04f

  • Roadmaps (Pt.2) - The Critical Journey

    Roadmaps (Pt.2) - The Critical Journey

    12/02/2021 Duración: 26min

    Here we talk about stages of faith. Its good to have a basic roadmap of how we grow and change, of how we mature in faith, and to know that (unfortunately) we might hit a wall in our growth and that it is a part of the journey. Of course, I am drawing a lot from The Critical Journey, but I gotta say, reading that book was so incredibly helpful for me. Hopefully, this "roadmap" is helpful for you as well.

    Roadmaps (Pt.1) - Shine, Burn, Unite

    05/02/2021 Duración: 21min

    This is all about Dante Aligheieri's epic poem The Divine Comedy and how it is actually an ancient roadmap of how people change and grow... You may have heard the stages as "Illumination, Purgation, Perfection" but I title them as "Shine, Burn, Unite."

  • Pilgrim, There Is No Path

    Pilgrim, There Is No Path

    06/10/2020 Duración: 38min

    Last week, I had a great conversation with my spiritual director, who blew me away with this singular quote from Antonio Machado: "Pilgrim, there is no path: paths are made by walking." Riffing on that, and that odd passage on "the heart is deceitful beyond all things", is it possible that we have misunderstood the place of listening to our heart's compass? So here is a chat about spiritual directors, having an inner compass and rethinking Jeremiah 17. And here is the poem by Antonio Machado, translated into english by Nadine JL. "Wanderer, the way is made by walking. Everything passes and all remains, But our task is to pass, pass by making paths, paths on the sea. I never pursued glory, nor sought to leave in the memories of men my song; I love the subtle worlds, weightless and gentle, like bubbles; funerals floating along. I like to see them painted, with sun and cochineal, fly under the blue sky, tremble suddenly and break… I never pursued glory. Wayfarer, your footsteps are the way and

    Tommy and Noah make up the band Lowercase People (go check them out). They are ragtag misfits, just like me... that's probably why we have kept in touch since meeting back in 2015. These two are thoughtful guys that are navigating what it means to have Christian upbringings, and owning it for themselves now that they are in their early 20s. Check it out. It's a long one, but a fun one. We got a bit excited at certain parts.

    Job Pt. 3 - Loins, Behemoths, Leviathons, And Yahweh

    04/08/2020 Duración: 31min

    The book of Job is ancient wisdom... that often gets misunderstood and so glossed over. Chances are, if you have heard of this book, you have some insights as towards the plot of the epic poem of Job, but do you know what it is really about? Suing God. Yup. In this episode, we chat through God showing up to Job's "courtroom," flipping the game on him, and going through what makes Job "repent OF dust and ashes." Truly, this book is not understood for all the gold it really has within its words!

    Matthew 25:14-30 can be problematic, especially if it keeps you up at night on a retreat like me. But maybe there is something deeper to this parable than we realize in the West...
