1: Our Kids and the Tsunami of Wokeness

Wokeness threatens to sweep away our kids, even our youngest. But it’s not time to throw stones at culture, it’s time to pour into our kids. To teach them who they are and why they’re here. We can raise up unshakable kids in a culture that’s shaking. And Daniel Darling can help us! Daniel’s a pastor and author. His brand-new storybook for your kids is The Biggest Best Light.

His book is the springboard for our conversation. We talk about teaching kids three to seven to know who they are: beautiful image-bearers of God. Then, how to teach our kids to show God’s love to their broken world. And last, we talk about how to joyfully teach our kids to own their gender and how to have organic conversations with your kids about your faith!


2: I Rejected Religion (That’s When Jesus Found Me)

Erskin grew up in the black church in Texas. He saw a lot of excitement for God on Sunday but none any other day of the week. It seemed fake, lifeless. And so, he walked away. Erskin Anavitarte, Texas-born, singer-songwriter from Nashville joins the team to share his journey from empty religion to Jesus. Erskin also helps us see through his eyes what it was like growing up as a black person.

And we talk about how the gospel has the power to heal racism and yet how Sunday morning is still the most segregated time in America, grippingly expressed in his song Black and White. We also see how God is writing our story especially when it’s darkest. We have a conversation about the Grand Canyon difference between religion and the gospel. And last, raising up Gen Z to follow Jesus. Please share this if your encouraged by it!
