    Episode 13-Did God Break His Own Rules About Women In The Tanakh (Old Testament)

    If God is against women in leadership then He has some "splainin'" to do! In this episode, we discuss the women that God raised up to lead in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible aka the Old Testament). Miriam, Deborah, Jael, a mystery woman, Esther and the prophet Huldah.

    Even though the Bible is written within a patriarchal worldview, God was able to work within our less than perfect ideals and plant an idea for something better, and He is still doing that today!

    God raised up and installed some amazing women to lead His people, both men, and women, which leaves us with a decision to make, Either He is breaking His own rules about women in leadership, or those are the rules of a patriarchal system and He is trying to lead us out of that to something better!

    Episode 12 Patriarchy Is Not God's Dream

    This episode is the first in a series of conversations about gender inequality. While this shows up globally, it reveals itself both blatantly and subtly here in the US. While not all churches and denominations teach a hierarchical view of men over women, many do, and therefore are a significant part of the problem in continuing to widen the gender divide.

    In this episode we will look at Genesis 1-3 in order to get a renewed perspective that patriarchy wasn't God's dream, it was actually part of the curse which we have been freed from.

    Episode 11- #NOTMYJESUS feat. Bob Fabey

    In this episode, Monty has a conversation with Bob Fabey, author of the book Not My Jesus. This conversation is rich and covers everything from Bob's move from the Christian and Missionary Alliance to becoming an Anglican priest, and how people tend to create a God in their own image. Bob's book tackles the subjects that reclaim Jesus amidst a world claiming they have the corner on who he is.

    Episode 10: The one about splagchnizomai

    The word that best describes the motivation of Jesus and the heart of God is "splagchnizomai." The Greek word is translated as compassion, or love and compassion, but it is more powerful than that. This type of compassion is an invitation into being more human while experiencing more of the divine. This episode will change the way you think God thinks about you!

    Episode 9: Divididitus-Zoe & Taking The Monastery With You!

    In this episode, Monty walks us into a space where the secular and the sacred distinction dissolves allowing us to embrace and experience the sacred moment that is present.

    When we falsely believe that the components of our lives ( body-soul-spirit) are compartmentalized &  separate from each other, we tend to label and make divisions everywhere. This disconnects us from fully living the into the moment that we have. 

    Sometimes we finally have a breakthrough moment on retreats, seminars or places like monasteries where the veil between us and God is so thin, and we find ourselves free of the divisions.

    The beauty though is when you are able to live fully present wherever you are, you are taking the monastery with you.

    Episode 8: dayenu, russians and really good wine

    There is this great word, Dayenu, it is powerful but before we talk about Dayenu we need to talk about the Passover which will lead us to some observations about russians and tie it all together with a conversation about good wine. All this to point out that God is giving us an invitation for know and experience grace more deeply, but the path can be hard sometimes.

    Episode 7: Wasted Wounds or Sacred Wounds
    Everybody has wounds. The difference between those who find joy, meaning and healing in life, and those who are discouraged, depressed and bitter has much to do with how we deal with the wounds of life.  In this episode, Monty begins a conversation from his book Sacred Space about the process of turning bitter wounds into in sacred wounds...without transformation, all our wounds will be wasted...but with God, they can be transformative.
