If we just had more time to get all we need to get done in a day.  It's hard to escape the whirlwind of busyness all around us.  A long to-do list and a full calendar seem to be the everyday norm. It can be easy for our focus to be on what we do versus who we are, on what we produce versus who we become.  In this episode of More Than One Way we take an honest look at busyness and how we juggle our tasks and time. Maybe there's more than one way to look at how we engage with time. Resources Mentioned:Stanford  Study on MultitaskingThe Myth of Multitasking by Dave CrenshawLet Your Life Speak by Parker PalmerContact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff

There are many passionate expressions of Christianity and yet we may find a personal disconnect with how the term is portrayed, worn, claimed, or lived by others.  On this episode of More Than One Way, we tackle the term Christian / Christianity and the many expressions that term now holds. The movement that started as "people of the way" now means a multitude of things.  What does it mean to you?Resource Mentioned in this Episode:Do I Stay Christian by Brian D.

From the earliest age, stories shape and guide us as powerful tools to help us make sense of life. We all have our favorites. Our lives are framed by stories.  On this episode of More Than One Way, we explore how stories help us engage and experience a bigger life, beyond our own surroundings. Stories at arm’s length can be helpful but for a story to be really powerful, it has to be personal. Contact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff
Have you ever had a day when everything feels like a blur?  When all you have to do is overwhelming?  It can even be in the midst of good things and celebrations.  There always seems to be more preparation to do be done. If we aren’t careful we can miss the meaning and joy in these moments. On this episode of More Than One Way we discuss the themes of preparation and awareness.  Through the lens of the season of Christmas we talk about the traditional Jesus story and an even older, more mysterious way to think about the coming and present Christ.  More than just a holiday spirit, what if it’s all around us, all the time, in everyone and everything?  What if everyday and every person is a gift?Contact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff
 “I was wrong.” “I need help.”  These two simple 3 word phrases seem to be in short supply in our society where the pressure for perfection is overwhelming. The pressure can cause us to deny that we need guidance or support and lead to anxiety and depression. On this episode of More Than One Way, we explore vulnerability and a willingness to acknowledge the fulness of life, both it ups and its downs. We welcome our special guest, Eric Bell, former collegiate athlete, professional triathlete, and the host of The Turning On the Light Podcast  to join a conversation around overcoming failures, mental health, and supporting each other in both the sunshine and rain of life.Contact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff
On this episode of More Than One Way we explore the many differences that are all around us.  From the utter silliness of liking or not liking condiments to the real and personal differences with our families, and even the societal differences that may place others in danger, there’s no doubt a conversation about how we really see and treat each other is more timely than ever.Daryl DavisChanging Minds Podcast with Daryl DavisContact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff

Have you ever had an experience that completely changes your perspective, your beliefs, or your reality? The Garden of Eden is often seen as a story with a negative ending and a legacy of punishment and failure. On this episode of More Than One Way we discuss an alternative way to consider this story. What if it wasn’t an ending but an opening to a new way of seeing the world, a new way of seeing ourselves?  What if the creation story is happening all around us everyday rather than a story stuck in history? Contact Us: Email | Instagram | Facebook | Web Presented by: The Center for Spiritual PracticeCreative Team: Nathan Tipton, Christibeth Paul, Scott Brun, Thom Rasnick, Kerry Ruff, Paul Ruff, & Whitney RossOriginal Music composed by: Paul Ruff
