WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #429 is Skye Jethani. Skye Jethani is the host of The Holy Post podcast and an author of several incredible books, including What If Jesus Was Serious? He was also a writer for Christianity Today, and currently writes daily devotionals. He currently lives outside of Chicago with his wife and three children.

Y’all. If you have been around here for more than a month, you know that I have not been able to stop talking about The Holy Post podcast. It is currently my FAVORITE podcast so I was a little giddy to chat with Skye. In today’s show, we talk about how much proximity changes things and how important it is for us to learn how to have civil conversations with people who think differently than us. Skye also dives into how crucial discipleship is in the church and why homogenous communities cause us to miss out on the ways God can change us through other people. This is a great word for pastors who are leading congregations, and Skye even shares practical goals on how to better disciple the church. So many things we consume form our views, and it causes us to look for excuses to dismiss the teachings of Christ. I really appreciated when Skye said “The real problem we’re facing today is not that our culture doesn’t take Jesus seriously, it’s that the church doesn’t. And if the church doesn’t take Him seriously then why would we expect the culture to?” Grab a pen and paper for this episode – you’re going to need it.
