238 - Philip Yancey "Politics, racism and anti-everything"
On today's episode, Alan talks with author and grace-obsessed communicator Philip Yancey about the challenges of these times and why we don't reflect the grace of our Savior. About Phillip I started my career working as an Editor and then Publisher for Campus Life magazine. During those ten years I learned journalistic skills (there's no tougher audience than teenagers), but every year it seemed I wrote fewer and fewer words. In 1980 my wife and I moved to downtown Chicago where I began a career as a freelance writer. (She has worked as a social worker and hospice chaplain--which gives me plenty of material to write about!) We lived there until 1992, when we moved to the foothills of Colorado. I've written over 30 books, most of them still in print, thankfully. Three of them I coauthored with Dr. Paul Brand, who influenced me more than any single person. A recent book, "Fearfully and Wonderfully: The Marvel of Bearing God's Image" is a revised compilation of that content. My other favorites include "Soul Survivor" and "Reaching for the Invisible God" because both of them forced me to dig deep and get personal. I have two new books for release in 2021. “A Companion in Crisis” offers a paraphrase of John Donne’s ‘Devotions’ with commentary and application to our current suffering. My long-awaited memoir, “Where the Light Fell” will give readers a backstory of sorts, revealing the secrets of my turbulent childhood and teen years, and its impact on my written work. I'm a pilgrim, still 'in recovery' from a bad church upbringing, searching for the possibility of a faith rooted in grace instead of fear. I feel overwhelming gratitude that I can make a living writing about the questions that interest me.

231 Peyton Jones "Church planting in a new era"
On today's episode, Alan talks with church planting guru Peyton Jones about how planting and leading churches needs to become more team-driven and team-empowered. About Peyton I started in Huntington Beach at a megachurch, then went to Wales, and served as the evangelist at Lloyd-Jones’s church Sandfields, and started planting churches in public spaces, like Starbucks. Returning back to the States, I planted a multiplying church in downtown Long Beach. I founded New Breed Church Planting Network which continues to train front-line 1st century style apostolic church planters, and the rest is history. I’ve served in collegiate campus churches, rural and urban churches, legacy churches, churches in public space…you name it. In a box, with a fox, I have planted Sam I am. Some of the things I’ve done over the years that may help you: Wrote a few books: Church Plantology: The Art and Science of Planting Churches, Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches From the Ashes of the 21st Century Church, and Reaching The Unreached: Becoming Raiders of the Lost Art. Started two of the biggest church planting podcasts - Hardcore Church Planting and The Church Planter Podcast. Co-founded Church Planter Magazine. Hired by Mac Lake, I revamped the Send Network Training, and produced professional training videos. Oversaw church planter training for the Western U.S. for the Send Network. Stayed married all this time, and adopted two beautiful girls. Once swatted five with one blow on a video game no one plays anymore. It was epic. You shoulda seen it. My goal in life is to expand your mind to think like believers in the 1st century did, and like church leaders in the Developing World, Western Europe, and Persecuted Church have to. That’s what drives me in the morning… I’d like to think it’s part-caffeine, and mostly Holy Spirit.” Connect with Peyton Books Website Facebook Level your leadership this fall Take your next step this fall with coaching Invest in your leadership by joining free Right Side Up Community Receive weekly leadership tweaks with Tuesday Tuneup Upstream Campaign
