Episode 18: Developing a "Rule of Life"

Bre Bondurant
12/2/21

This episode includes an open, honest (and friendly) conversation with Bre Bondurant, Crossroads' Adult Worship Director.  Bre discusses the concept of a "Rule of Life"--a schedule for regular spiritual practices that we can incorporate into our life to ensure that we are on mission and including God in every aspect of our life.  This may sound like a daunting task, but Bre's encouragement to all of us is to not feel guilty, to be confident that we can do it, and not to get overwhelmed.  The last thing a Rule of Life should do is be "soul-crushing!!"

Episode 4: Dependence on God - Sacred Pathways, Part 1
​​​​​​Paul Linge
04/29/2020

In this episode, we speak with Crossroads' Counseling Pastor, Paul Linge, about the different ways we connect with God.

Over the past few weeks, as we spoke with a few of our staff members about the principle of Dependence on God, someone recommended a book called "Sacred Pathways" by Gary Thomas.  This book describes nine ways that Christians relate to God. After being led to this book, we discovered that a few years ago Paul Linge not only read, but taught from this book.  So, we went to him as the subject matter expert to share some of his learnings with us.

There was really too much information for us to cover in one episode of the podcast, so we split this topic into two episodes.  In part 1, you will learn the nine ways mankind connects with God, and hopefully recognize the pathway with which you most closely relate.  In part 2 we will speak with two members of our Worship Ministry Team, and ask them about their personal pathways & how identifying those pathways has aided them in leading our church family in worship.
