A Woke Week at Oxford

Not even The Queen and Oxford are safe from wokeness.

#55: Stand Firm Storytellers: Church, Ministry, and the ACNA

Jady and Nick share a bit of their personal journeys to Anglicanism, talk about planting churches worth fighting for, and reflect on what makes Anglican worship special.

My Soul Waits For The Lord

The fruit was delicious. It was. They were very happy for a moment and felt a deep thought inside them, that love is love, that water is life, that kindness is everything, that Eve’s rights are everybody’s rights, that no one is illegal, that tautologies are the best thing ever. But then they felt sort of sick.

#54: Proud Out Loud: Deadly Sins, Exvangelicals, and the Retreat from Truth

Matt and Jady talk about “Pride Month,” discuss its widespread appropriation and cultural weight, and connect it to famous evangelicals who leave their former faith behind.

He isn’t going to make everyone get along and be good and build some peaceful city where the garbage collection happens regularly and there is no more racism or misogyny. He isn’t making it easier to use social media or to shop without getting covid. He isn’t going to help us each be the change we want to see in the world, nor even to stop all men from lust.
