June 3, 2020

What starts off as a rant about the "Christian Girl Instagram" develops into a larger conversation about how social media can hinder us from practicing spiritual disciplines solely for an audience of One.

Where Is God During COVID-19?

Where Is God During COVID-19?

April 1, 2020

We're back! In our Season 4 premiere, we tackle one of the grayest subjects of them all: God and suffering. We examine the Coronavirus through the lens of God, church, and culture, while giving our predictions for where all this is heading, and how it will shape the world as we know it. On a lighter note, we also give updates about what we've been up to the last eight months.

How Do You Live Life In The Gray? (Our Final Episode, For Now…)

How Do You Live Life In The Gray? (Our Final Episode, For Now…)

August 28, 2019

For this last episode, we present an unfiltered, intimate conversation about what it means practically to live life in the gray. Listen in for such exciting revelations as to who came up with our name and tagline, what our favorite episodes are, what we learned about each other from this experience, what our plans are for the future, and what this podcast means to us.

Life In The Gray has been a grand experiment in being transparent as we processed through our thinking out loud with trusted friends. We encourage you to find a group of trusted friends and do the same.

Due to changing life circumstances, we have decided to put Life In The Gray on an indefinite hiatus for the time being. Feel free to check out any older episodes you might have missed, and continue to follow us for updates to see what we are up to next. We thank everyone for making this a memorable journey, and we hope to return someday; until then, when things aren't black or white, continue living life in the gray. Cheers!

Is America A Christian Nation?

Is America A Christian Nation?

August 14, 2019

Is America more like Israel, God's chosen nation? Or like Babylon, an idolatrous empire? We assess the sins of America's past and present in this intense discussion featuring Casey Cook, the Wives, and even Derrick's daughter.

Is The Reformation Overrated?

Is The Reformation Overrated?

July 31, 2019

What begins with frustrations about the Protestant Reformers leads to a greater conversation about how we should really look at the heroes of our faith. This soft sequel to our hit episode "Calvinism" focuses less on theology and more on the actions of the Reformers themselves.

Let’s Talk About Sex!

Let’s Talk About Sex!

July 17, 2019

It's time to talk about sex and the church. We bring on our good friend Kelly Hoeft to examine the in's and out's of purity culture (whether it's healthy or toxic), and discuss how to navigate these topics without resorting to shame. Also listen in for Luther's experience growing up in purity culture, what it was like for Derrick to date his future wife, and Michelle's evening at a "purity banquet," along with popular analogies equating stickers with sex and roses to virginity. 

Is God Male, Female, Or Both?

Is God Male, Female, Or Both?

June 19, 2019

Inspired by a question asked by one of Derrick's students, we explore some of the awesome and beautiful language used in Scripture to describe God, though we don't agree on what it's all trying to say.
