Tearing Down Walls Over Lunch
Connecting with people who are different than us can be awkward. A few weeks ago on the show Mia challenged us to get lunch with someone who is super different than us.  Mia joins us on the show again as we talk about what happened when we stepped out of our comfort zone to engage people who believe, act, and see the world differently than us.  It was an interesting experiment for sure and it taught us more about how to enter the world of others the way Jesus did.

An Honest Conversation With John M Perkins
We were in Memphis to honor MLK, and we had the unbelievable experience to get to spend over an hour with Dr. Perkins. He invited us into his hotel room to talk. When we arrived, he was chillin' out reading the newspaper and looking dapper as usual. It was the day of the release of his final book, One Blood, and he was generous enough to answer some questions we had about experiencing the abundant life. Soak up all you can from JP, as his family affectionately calls him. In a world of selfishness, this kind of wisdom is rare.
