If we make our pool of comparison small enough, we can be pretty impressiveness. But in the grand view, we are all very unimpressive. John Onwucheckwa helps me converse and cope with this.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Deconstructing Faith

If there was ever a time that large amounts of people were questioning their faith in recent years, it's now. Deconstructing faith can be a scary thing that we either fearfully avoid, or recklessly wield.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Affection between fathers and sons can be such a foreign thing, but not for me. A few months ago, I recorded my first podcast conversation, which was never released. I discuss affection between men with my father.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We Find Love

We Find Love

2020-05-0641:32

Though true and pure love is unchanging, unfailing, and eternal, the way we go about finding it, is not. As the times change, so do our courses that we take to find love.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
I can't talk about catching flights and feelings, without talking about the continent I've flown to the most outside of the U.S. I sit down with International Emmy Award winning actress Thuso Mbedu on a broad range of topics generally focused on the intersections of Africa and Black America.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The current global crisis is forcing us to change our schedules, but this season can still be fruitful for you. If we want to be beautiful gardens that produce fruit, and forests that rise into the sun, we need to be regular.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
For today’s layover, I thought it would be great to have a moment of gently getting the mind’s attention and calmly bringing it to the now, the present.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Friendship is key to a successful long term relationship. So if a guy wants to go "Dutch" he is automatically placed in the Friend Zone!

Amazing!!! I got to understand myself a lot thru this. I hate routines cause they can be mundane and this has made me skip or not be consistent with things, thus no growth. Thanks a million for sharing this. Amazing inspiration

Thanks for sharing this. Aside from the gist of the conversation, I learnt a lot from all the other stuff that popped up. The value of friendship and how inconvenient it is being a friend at times and that it's OK to not commit to sthng you don't feel you can commit to.

I love the friendship you and Natalie have. It's something that I am trying to have as well because I feel like I grew up with a mindset that said "if you have a close friendship with a guy it should be for marriages sake and not just for having a friend" I no longer want to see all my guy friends as potential husbands but just as my friend.

Nice to hear you talk. I hear also al lot of normative talks, that as a Dutchman also sound quite traditional and outdated. If you chenge every thought you speak out about a woman, with man, than you would realize how gender concepts are not anymore of this time and age. That a woman can buy her own house, praise the lord! A much as it is for a man.

Hi Joe, thank you so much for this. One thing I've learnt in all of this is that the devil will try by all means to get you isolated and that is when he can deal with you. Negative doubts will fill your mind to the point of death. This is a very serious condition that needs to be taked about more on such platforms so that more people wil be helped. God bless you bro and may you receive complete healing.
