Avoiding the Fantasy Bubble

May 25, 2021

The realities of life can be difficult and painful. We want relief, but we often seek it in the form of escape into fantasy. In this episode, we explore the issue of fantasy and how to avoid what we call the "fantasy bubble" -- a place of unhealthy escape into imagination that pulls us away from truth and community instead of toward them. If you struggle with unhealthy fantasy, you will be encouraged and motivated with practical insights and actions to break free.

A Hopeful Response to Church Leaders Struggling with Sexual Sin

A Hopeful Response to Church Leaders Struggling with Sexual Sin

May 18, 2021

"The danger is that for men and women in ministry there is little to no training, guidance, and supervision that is ever offered specifically in the area of sexual wholeness and integrity."

These words from our guest, Nick Stumbo, lay the foundation for this episode. Nick was a pastor for 15 years and now leads the sexual integrity ministry Pure Desire. Our conversation will unpack sexual sin and leaders in the church; what to do when a leader is struggling or failing, and how to better prepare leaders to cultivate a personal and corporate culture of sexual wholeness and integrity.
