Teachings

Leadership Podcast

The Third-Way Faith Podcast was recorded in 2006 and 2007. It focused on the challenges that leaders of the church face in a rapidly changing culture. With the help of some of my friends I explored issues of faith, culture, media, technology, and church. The title comes from a simple conviction; In a world weary of polarization between right and left, red and blue, liberal and conservative, there exists a third-way beyond, not just between these positions.
