In episode 22, we talk with our returning guest, Kevin Neuner from Spark Church, about parenting through deconstruction. It can be hard to talk about God, spirituality, and church as you’re reimagining or reconstructing your faith. We talk about being a sojourner alongside your kids rather than prescribing “right beliefs” and how children can be a valuable sage in our journey. Kevin draws on decades of studying the Rabbinic traditions and way of Jesus to invite us to a new posture for parenting.21: The Evolution of a Church PART 2 w/ Ryan Meeks of Eastlake Church

There are a growing number of people who have given up on church, hit a wall in their faith, or been left with lingering question regarding the Christian tradition which was passed down to them. But they're not ready to entirely walk away from God, spirituality, or faith — if anything, they believe faith is what grounds us and helps us to make a difference in our shared world.
Maybe this is your story.
