THE SEMINARY OF HARD KNOCKS PODCAST with Seth Muse and Meagan Ranson
Church Communications | Marketing | Social Media

 

This very important episode is a very honest conversation with my friend Jason Caston. Aside from his many communications credentials including Daystar, AT&T, and writing his own books and strategies, he has a very poignant perspective on how racism has been and is currently being dealt with in the church. Can we heal? Can we move forward? We have hope. But first, we have to talk about some things. 

 

In this Episode:

  • How has the black community interpreted the response to racism from the white community?
  • What steps can we take to healing?
  • What exactly is "white privilege?" 
  • Have recent events polarized us in the church racially in ways we cannot recover from?

The church is facing a crisis of identity at this point in time. As we deal with civil unrest, racism, and divisiveness in our churches over multiple issues, Nik is one of those guys who always seems to have a clear heading. This is a very frank and powerful conversation with a creative who understands how art and beauty can lead us to truth in the church and creative space.

 

In this Episode:

  • How art and design can help us communicate as well as process pain.
  • Thoughts on current events and the church concerning racism.

Here's part 2 of my conversation with Adam McLaughlin, who recently wrote an insightful article about the way overwhelming stress affects communications professionals. This conversation is an important one for pastors and comms directors to start having because our experience is a little different than that of a minister.

If something like the whistling theme from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly plays in your head when you go into “spiritual discussion mode,” then you probably are doing more damage than good.

Unfortunately, many spiritual conversations end up in arguments over dinosaurs on the ark or whether or not Jonah was really swallowed by a fish instead of the real issue of sin and our need for Jesus.

But it’s not just because Christians are bad at civil conversation. It’s because everyone is bad at civil conversation.

The next time you’re headed into a creation vs. evolution argument, give my (non-Buddhist) 8-fold path to a great spiritual conversation a shot.

Justin Bass  helps us to answer those who have objections to a few aspects of Christianity. In this episode, we talk about how to answer those who say the Bible is written too late and was changed over time, those who say Jesus never rose from the dead, and those who say Jesus never claimed to be God. Dr. Bass has debated publically on these topics and carries a doctorate in New Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, where he is an adjunct professor.
