Shifting How We View God and Scripture

1 hr 14 min

This podcast is the second part of an ongoing series that is exploring Five Statements of a New Reformation. In this episode we’re joined by Brad Jersak who walks us through why we need a more Christlike God, and what it means to read Scripture with Jesus at the centre. We all carry around ideas, images, and experiences of God. It's important to unearth these stories, these experiences, and pictures of God, because the God we imagine is the God we become like. So what is God like? The witness of Scripture is that God is like Jesus - Jesus is what God has to say! And this radical truth reshapes everything.

Creating a Culture of Belonging in a Polarized Age

1 hr min

This podcast episode is part of an ongoing series that is exploring five statements of a new reformation. We’re joined by Professor Mark Baker who discusses our fifth statement: The church is defined by our shared centre, not by the lines we draw. Dr. Baker discusses the difference between a bounded set (obsessing over boundaries) and fuzzy set approach (erasing all boundaries) to offer a radically alternative model of community — a centred-set approach.
Check out more resources from Dr. Baker and his series Centered-Set Church.

This talk is a profound call for leaders to stay and be resiliently rooted in a Jesus-centred focus in the face of the hardships & heartbreaks of leadership. Want more content from Leanne?

Are We on the Brink of a New Reformation?

1 hr 7 min

Phyllis Tickle once suggested that every 500 years or so, Christianity goes through an upheaval. These upheavals happen because the old answers no longer hold true for a large number of people, and the church at large has to re-explore and recontextualize.
