Ep. 5: Awake, O Sleeper, from FEAR

We welcome Rozella Haydée White, The Love Big Coach and author of “Love Big” as we begin our Lenten Devotional Series: Awake, O Sleeper. This series is inspired by Ephesians 5:14, “Awake, O Sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ’s light will shine on you.” In this episode we engage how God is inviting us to awake from fear.

Ep. 3: Discovering Grace

Join me in welcoming Katie Simbala to the show. Katie identifies as a bisexual woman and is in a polyamorous relationship. And even while she has endured unrelenting words of rejection and damnation from the Pentecostal community that raised her, she remains passionate about Jesus, the church, and the move of the Holy Spirit.
