How would our life and faith be enriched by committing to seeing Jesus, and our Church, anew? Rev. Gibson discusses the importance of this difficult act and how it can give us insight and freedom. Can we take the faith, belief, and orthodoxy that we are comfortable with and be open to diving further into exploring the infinite dimension of the teaching and example of the Risen Christ?

Gibson's sermon message of "letting go" and "living the life of what your reading" by relinquishing his weekly stringent podcast editing process and allowing (painfully) a "practically unedited" episode to go out into the world. Hopefully, the show is up to snuff and he, and you the listening audience, can take something to grow and learn from this unorthodox Easter message.
