Does Every Orphan Need Adopting?
There are 153 million orphans in the world today. Most of us would agree that making more adoptions possible is the most obvious solution to the problem, but what if it's not that simple? What if, in some parts of the world today, adoptions are unintentionally hurting children? Jessica and Adam Davis set out to change a little girl's life, but a shocking revelation disrupted their journey and challenged everything they thought they knew about orphans. The stories in this episode challenge our own preconceptions about one of humanity's most pressing concerns: protecting the world's most vulnerable children, and doing justice on their behalf.

Is God Colorblind?
In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and others, the flames of rage engulfed our national conscience. Some of the anger was righteous indignation fueled by a genuine longing for justice; some of it was violent, opportunistic, and even deadly. Where do we go from here? Are we ready to deal with systemic racism? Should we "dismantle whiteness"? For those of us trying to follow Jesus, what is the Christian response to racism? We tackle all these questions and more with the help of Dr. Esau McCaulley, author of the new book "Reading While Black," as well as a Texas couple with a truly unique perspective on recent events in our country.

Should We Stop in the Name of Love?
Has a global pandemic been a welcomed break from the busyness of everyday life? Over the years, we've warned people about the intoxicating nature of money, sex, pride, anxiety, and shame, but we've failed to alert people to the most popular gateway drug of our time: busyness. Pastor and author of "The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry" John Mark Comer warns that constant distraction and hurry are the greatest threats to our spiritual and emotional health. According to John Mark, hurry is incompatible with love, and if God is love, hurry prevents God from truly transforming our souls. Eric and John Mark suggest that this COVID-19 moment could be our best chance to declare independence from the soul-sucking busyness we sold-out to years ago, and they offer simple, practical ways to reject chronic busyness and to embrace real life and real love.

Can Loving “Illegals” Save Our Souls? (Part Two)
As the crisis intensifies along the southern border, scoring political points is easier than getting to the heart of the matter. Some say the US has a moral obligation to receive all refugees; many others, including 68% of white evangelicals, insist we have no responsibility to receive any refugees at all. But what if we're looking at this crisis from the wrong point of view? By giving migrants a platform to share their powerful stories of faith, this episode compels us all to walk a mile (or 2,000) in their shoes. When we take the time to listen, their faith will change our hearts, and when all our hearts are changed, we'll change the world together. *Please support Pastor John Garland’s work with the refugee community in San Antonio by visiting semillascommunity.org today, and go to maybegodpod.com to sign up for exclusive updates.

Can Loving “Illegals” Save Our Souls? (Part One)
Since 2014, the number of migrants crossing the border has skyrocketed, leading to the highly politicized border crisis we've seen in the news. In debates like this one, we’re so quick to point out who the villains are and what the solutions are that we forget to answer the most important questions: Where is God in this crisis? What does He want us to learn from it? What does He want us to do about it? On this episode, the Maybe God team travels to El Paso to search for God’s voice in voices the asylum-seekers and their allies.

Are You Seeing Anyone? (Part Two)
Even as our culture grows more cynical toward monogamy and marriage, the overwhelming majority of young Americans still hope to find The One and get hitched. Deep down, we still believe in life-altering, breathtaking, rapturous love. But what if the love we're searching for isn't the kind of love we really need? On this episode, a young woman shares the story of how one man's love changed her life forever in the most unexpected way. Their love story left us wondering if we've lost the plot when it comes to dating and relationships. What if the love we need isn't necessarily romantic or sexual? Maybe there is something better than mere marriage for singles in search of love.

Are You Seeing Anyone? (Part One)
Most of us grew up being told that one day we’ll find The One, get married, have babies, and grow old together. It’s a formula that seems to have served past generations well, so as we came of age, the search was on. And we liked our chances because, thanks to dating apps like Tinder, we have more options at our fingertips than any generation before us. Still, fewer young adults than ever are walking the aisle, and for the first time in America’s history, single adults outnumber married ones. On this episode, we explore the wild world of online dating, which empowers singles to accept or reject hundreds of potential mates an hour without ever really seeing them, and we ask the question: with all these choices, why aren’t more people finding The One? Featured guests include Gossip Girl actress Zuzanna Szadkowski and world-famous psychologist Barry Schwartz.

Should We Get Naked Together?
What’s the first thing you do when you see a flaw in the mirror? You look for a way to conceal it. Hide it. Cover it up. Either with cosmetics or wardrobe tricks, the idea is to mask the imperfection. What if the same principle applies to our minds? On this episode, renowned psychiatrist and author of The Soul of Shame Dr. Curt Thompson explains what’s happening in our brains when we spend our entire lives concealing who we really are, and how we can unroot the shame that’s holding us back from leading healthy lives. Eric and Julie also admit their own battles with shame, past and present.

Do Queer People Belong in the Church (Part Two)
Please note: this episode contains content that is not suitable for young audiences. As the United Methodist Church stands at an impasse in the decades-old debate over the marriage and ordination of LGBTQ people, a split appears unavoidable. Conservatives accuse liberals of disrespecting the Bible; liberals suggest conservatives are on par with slave-owners and misogynists. At times like this, maybe we don't need better arguments or stronger doctrine; maybe we need more stories. On this episode, former anti-Christian gay activist David Bennett, author of A War of Loves: The Unexpected Story of a Gay Activist Following Jesus, shares the shocking story of his conversion to Christianity. Maybe God host Eric Huffman reveals, for the first time, his views on homosexuality and the Bible. Also, the remarkable story of Aimee, a member of The Story Houston, that producers didn't see coming.
