One thing I have come to appreciate are people who take the time to thoughtfully and critically engage with who and what they are encountering both online and in real life. I admit it’s a weird experience to “eavesdrop” on a conversation about yourself. Most of the time, I’d skip that opportunity. But Brian and Blake are thoughtful guys and I appreciated their perspective.
Self-described as a “Post-Christian” show about brother-in-laws striving to bridge the gap between Christians and the rest of the world,” I hope you’ll take a moment to listen to these two kind, empathetic, and incisive thinkers.
A few highlights from their conversation include their reflections on:
- The way that I chose to share about my departure from faith and the community’s response to my announcement.
- Brian and Blake’s own reflections on wrestling through their relationship to the formal church structure.
- The pressure of holding one person up as the ultimate example of embodied faith.
- Many great thoughts on the cult of personality.
- How the title ‘Christian’ might be limiting and how a group of people are choosing to move forward and embrace a reality without that identifier.
- The difference between Christian by definition and those who live according to the way of Jesus.
