Chapter 10: Getting Slavery Out of the People
Steve Jobs once said, "You can't connect the dots of your life looking forward. You can only do it looking back." In a conversation that takes us from the Appalachian Trail to Thailand, UDLC field education student, Courtney Smith, and Pastor Keith reflect on how the road to freedom is never a straight line and how the journey prepares us for the destination.

Chapter 7: It's Not Too Late
Have you ever felt like it was too late? Too late in your life to make a change? Too late in the day to turn it around? Too late in your relationship with God? The story of Abraham shows us that it's never too late. That's what we call grace. In this episode, Sara Ruhf and Pastor Keith discuss the never-too-late-ness of faith.

Chapter 6: Plotting Goodness
Faith is an adventure, not a fixed point. The story of Sarah and Abraham reminds us that faith is active and moving; it is more about the journey than about the destination. "Faith is stepping off the map of what's known and making a new road by walking into the unknown. It's responding to God's call to adventure, stepping out on a quest for goodness, trusting that the status quo isn't as good as it gets, believing a promise that a better life is possible." Pastor Keith and Darlene Versak share their experiences of living the adventure of faith.

Chapter 5: In Over Our Heads
Church nerds unite! Self-proclaimed church book nerds, Stephanie Jacob and Pastor Keith, talk about how the Bible has gotten a bad rap about being boring when it is actually anything but. The Bible, while it can seem primitive today, was very progressive for its time. God, like a great teacher, takes old stories people already knew and transforms them into messages of love and hope.

Chapter 4: The Drama of Desire
In our polarized world, it is incredibly easy to fall into judging others. It's a challenge that goes all the way back to the beginning of the Bible with Adam and Eve. How can we be less judging and more accepting? How can we better imitate the example of Jesus, breaking bread together both literally and figuratively? Beth Dzwil and Pastor Keith discuss.

Chapter 3: A World of Meaning
God is in the details! Chris Couch and Pastor Keith talk about paying attention to the details of our everyday lives and finding God there--and how even in a world that feels so chaotic, the "logic" or logos of God reminds us there is a pattern of goodness that underlies all of creation. We also talk about Rob Bell's book What is the Bible: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything.
