Pete Enns, his writings and podcast, have shaped a lot of us in progressive christian, post-evangelical, deconstruction circles. As we have wrestled with what to make of faith when it seemed to have become unrecognizable to our former selves—and unrecognizable to those who wonder if we've given up on faith altogether— Pete has been a trustworthy voice for putting the pieces back together meaningfully, thoughtfully, and intelligently. It was an honor to have him on for a short chat about the things he definitely has the chops to chat about. Enjoy!

What if your experience of faith changing — even falling away, seemingly never to go back to how it was — is part of what is promised in Tim Tebow's eye make up? It's worth thinking about.

My eyes sometimes wanna roll out of my skull too. Everybody wants to be woke, and one of the best ways of signaling wokeness is to be offended first. But, what if there's something far more weighty going on worth not only considering, but participating in? Well, if you want to be a person regarded as kind, thoughtful and respectful, then maybe there's more than the eye roll that we can offer one another. Ben has thoughts you'll love....

Some thoughts this Thanksgiving about...well...giving thanks, which may only be possible on condition of our noticing what's actually happening outside our well-rehearsed stories about it all. Bonus: I end with a short story I call Footprints 2.0
