We welcome Dr Bussie to our show to talk about what limitless LOVE means to her.
 
Dr. Jacqueline Bussie is an award-winning author, professor, theologian, public speaker, and student of life in all its messy beauty. Her books include Love Without Limits (2018) and Outlaw Christian (2016), which won the 2017 Gold Medal Illumination Award for Christian Living. Jacqueline teaches religion, theology, and interfaith studies classes at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, where she also serves as the Director of the Forum on Faith and Life. Every day she is amazed and grateful that she actually gets paid to do the three things she loves most: 1) interact with incredible students, 2) write, and 3) try to make the world a more compassionate place.
.
In her free time, Jacqueline loves to: read books, ride in the front car of roller coasters, take ballroom dance classes with her husband, and travel to any place she has never been before. She is a huge fan of long walks, laughter, the band Bon Iver, the smell of honeysuckle on a hot day, and her husband’s fantastic fajitas. Her favorite place to write is next to any body of water. Though Jacqueline hails from Florida, she now lives in Fargo, North Dakota–which is all the proof she needs that the Divine has a sense of humor.

The Holy Heretics podcast welcomes Christopher Maloney to talk about his film In God We Trump.

 

In the most surprising election results of modern times, Donald J. Trump defied expectations to become the 45th president of the United States. Though written off by almost every major news outlet and poll, Trump pulled through to victory in part because of the unwavering support of his staunchest supporters – Evangelical Christians.

Despite lewd comments, a checkered past, and two failed marriages, Trump became the choice of most Evangelical voters, winning 80% of the Christian vote. Why? Many in the Christian community were asking, “How can Christians vote for Donald Trump?” while others were asking, “How can Christians not vote for Donald Trump?”

Now, largely because of the election and the endorsement of several high-profile Christian leaders, there exists a clear divide in the faith community. It was recently reported that 14% of Christian churchgoers have since left the Church because of something related to the 2016 Presidential Election. Why? What’s happening? Can these differences be reconciled within the Church?

That remains to be seen. In the meantime, this film explores these matters by inviting the voices of ministers, voters, Christian writers, and political activists to create something that tells the story of Trump’s relationship with the faith community.

Did Donald Trump become a Christian, as some claim, or did he orchestrate a major con by going through the motions in order to get votes?

We welcome the funny, intense, loving Jami Amerine to our show.

Jami says -

I was forcibly pushed into blogging, and I LOVE IT!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!  I have met and interacted with people all over the world! I have never had so much fun. The psychobabble that I share on this blog is probably not the wisest on the internet, but if it resonates with a few, hey, that’ll do! I am a wife to Justin, and mother to Maggie, John, Luke, Sophie, Sam, and Charlie.  We are on a reprieve from foster care as we recover from the removal of a long-term placement.

My husband Justin and I have a ranch near our home and we love to travel and “just be.”  However, we recently relocated to the North Houston. I have a Master’s Degree in Education, Counseling, and Human Development, but don’t let that fool you, I am not sure how I pulled that off. I also have an undergraduate degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (yeah, Home Ec.). I can cook anything, but don’t ask me to sew.So since this journey began I have been featured on numerous occasions on foreverymom.com and several other syndications sites including scarymommy.com and mamalode.com, 

You can also find me on Fox News, Today Parenting, and Huffington!  

 

Basically, you only have to read a couple of my blog posts to get the gist. It is pretty cut and dry. I love my husband and my kids, I am afraid of flying, my Xanax is on automatic refill, I am addicted to Jesus, Facebook, blogging, and babies. I love to travel and hang at my parents’ lake house outside of Houston, Texas.My dad is my #1 fan. My husband and sons don’t read my blog because they are dyslexic and are waiting for it to come out on audio.  I have run the gamut in trying to raise perfect humans and I am proud to say… I failed. They are imperfectly wonderful!  I am a Christian who tends to get snarky. I am anti-Jesus fish because I am a lousy driver, so I don’t think He wants me to advertise on my 12 passenger van for Him. And I have decided my political affiliation is Conservative, Liberal, Socialist.  I have my own ticket.

Such a fun talk!

We welcome award winning singer and songwriter Jennifer Knapp back to our show!! Yes!!

Singer and songwriter Jennifer Knapp is one of the top Christian artists in the United States. She has played with the famed Lilith Fair tour, has been listed in the Billboard top 25, won a Dove Award, and has been nominated for a Grammy Award.

Jennifer was once a musician and artist in the Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) industry where she achieved great success including a Grammy nomination and numerous Dove awards. However, in 2004, after years in the limelight of the stage and the gaze of the public eye, Jennifer decided to take a hiatus from the music and embark on a personal journey of renewal and self-discovery. Several years later, Jennifer announced her return to music and also that she was gay (as seen on Larry King Live on CNN). This time though, Jennifer decided to go mainstream with her music, her orientation, and her faith.

In this episode Jon talks with Jennifer about her most recent accomplishment graduating from Vanderbilt school of divinity and her upcoming tours.

We welcome the real Dr Phil back to the Holy Heretics podcast to talk about not just crossing the bridge but helping to build the new world.

www.phillipnikao.com

 

Recognized as a Passionate Voice of Oneness, Reason, and Relevance, Dr. Nikao is blazing new trails in the vast world of business, success, psychology, and science-based spirituality.

In his raw and compelling style, he has evolved from the corporate desk to entrepreneur, from institutionalized religion to transformational practicality, from following the crowd to leading it.

Dr. Nikao believes that within every person is a spark of genius, creativity, and passion. His pursuit in life is laser focused on connecting people to that spark in consciousness and manifest reality. Along the way, he has discovered that the conventional systems of change and growth are often severely lacking, and mediocre at best. So Dr. Nikao has taken the road less traveled, often at great personal sacrifice, to help pave the high road of empowered living,impactful prosperity, and authentic success.

Growing up in an Amish home set the stage for Dr. Nikao’s life-journey, experiencing early in life the difficulty and pain of “breaking out”, yet the reward and joy of life transformation.

With Degrees in both religion and neuroscience, and his Doctorate in Psychology, Dr. Nikao continues to lead and study from a perspective of finding practical solutions to life’s complexity. His passion for life-transformation quickly led to public speaking early in life, which in turn brought Nikao face-to-face with the incredible need for personal life-coaching, a real and touchable process that brings practicality to information.

In 1999, Dr. Nikao developed and implemented a highly successful Life Coaching team, and yet again, built bridges between the mass audiences in his public speaking career with the personalization of life-coaching.

In his journey, he has spoken before thousands, even sharing the stage with leaders like Zig Ziglar, Rudolph Guliani, and Margaret Thatcher. He has traveled to other countries, spoken and lectured in high schools and colleges, and is a confidant to business and spiritual leaders across the country.

Recognized as a Passionate Voice of Oneness, Reason, and Relevance, Dr. Nikao is blazing new trails in the vast world of business, success, psychology, and science-based spirituality.

 

In his raw and compelling style, he has evolved from the corporate desk to entrepreneur, from institutionalized religion to transformational practicality, from following the crowd to leading it.

 

Dr. Nikao believes that within every person is a spark of genius, creativity, and passion. His pursuit in life is laser focused on connecting people to that spark in consciousness and manifest reality. Along the way, he has discovered that the conventional systems of change and growth are often severely lacking, and mediocre at best. So Dr. Nikao has taken the road less traveled, often at great personal sacrifice, to help pave the high road of empowered living,impactful prosperity, and authentic success.

 

Growing up in an Amish home set the stage for Dr. Nikao’s life-journey, experiencing early in life the difficulty and pain of “breaking out”, yet the reward and joy of life transformation.

With Degrees in both religion and neuroscience, and his Doctorate in Psychology, Dr. Nikao continues to lead and study from a perspective of finding practical solutions to life’s complexity. His passion for life-transformation quickly led to public speaking early in life, which in turn brought Nikao face-to-face with the incredible need for personal life-coaching, a real and touchable process that brings practicality to information.

 

In 1999, Dr. Nikao developed and implemented a highly successful Life Coaching team, and yet again, built bridges between the mass audiences in his public speaking career with the personalization of life-coaching.

 

In his journey, he has spoken before thousands, even sharing the stage with leaders like Zig Ziglar, Rudolph Guliani, and Margaret Thatcher. He has traveled to other countries, spoken and lectured in high schools and colleges, and is a confidant to business and spiritual leaders across the country.

Paul Young joins us to chat about his life experience and gives us some insight for what inspired the writing of "The Shack" and his other great books.

http://wmpaulyoung.com/

“I thought the way I grew up was ‘normal’ but I think most would probably agree that my history and journey have been a bit unusual.”

We live in a world where ‘normal’ does not truly exist except as a concept or wishful thought. For each of us, where and how we grew up plays a foundational role in our sense of ‘normal’, and only when we begin to experience the ‘bigness and diversity’ of the world are we tempted to evaluate our roots.

I thought the way I grew up was ‘normal’ but most would probably agree that my history and journey have been a bit unusual. The eldest of four, born May 11th, 1955, in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, the majority of my first decade was lived with my missionary parents in the highlands of Netherlands New Guinea (West Papua), among the Dani, a technologically stone age tribal people. These became my family and as the first white child and outsider who ever spoke their language, I was granted unusual access into their culture and community. Although at times a fierce warring people, steeped in the worship of spirits and even occasionally practicing ritualistic cannibalism, they also provided a deep sense of identity that remains an indelible element of my character and person.

By the time I was flown away to boarding school at age 6, I was in most respects a white Dani. In the middle of a school year, my family unexpectedly returned to the West. My father worked as a Pastor for a number of small churches in Western Canada and by the time I graduated, I had already attended thirteen different schools. I paid my way through Bible College working as a radio disc jockey, lifeguard and even a stint in the oil fields of northern Alberta. I spent one summer in the Philippines and another touring with a drama troupe before working in Washington D.C. at Fellowship House, an international guesthouse. Completing my undergraduate degree in Religion, I graduated summa cum laude from Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon.

The following year, I met and married Kim Warren and for a time worked on staff at a large suburban church while attending seminary. I have owned businesses and worked for others in diverse industries, from insurance to construction, venture capital companies to telecom, contract work to food processing; whatever was needed to help feed and house our growing family. I have always been a writer, whether songs, poetry, short stories or newsletters; never for public consumption but for friends and family. While I have extensively written for business, creating web content, business plans, white papers etc., The Shack was a story written for my six children, with no thought or intention to publish. No one is more surprised that I am now considered an ‘author’. The truth is, I am a rather simple guy; I have one wife, six kids, two daughter-in-laws, a son-in-law and six grandkids, and incredible friends and extended family surround us. New friends, like you, are part of our expanding world and adventure.

These are some of the facts of my life, but they don’t begin to tell the real story. That would take much more room than is available here. The journey has been both incredible and unbearable, a desperate grasping after grace and wholeness. These facts don’t tell you about the pain of trying to adjust to different cultures, of life losses that were almost too staggering to bear, of walking down railroad tracks at night in the middle of winter screaming into the windstorm, of living with an underlying volume of shame so deep and loud that it constantly threatened any sense of sanity, of dreams not only destroyed but obliterated by personal failure, of hope so tenuous that only the trigger seemed to offer a solution. These few facts also do not speak to the potency of love and forgiveness, the arduous road of reconciliation, the surprises of grace and community, of transformational healing and the unexpected emergence of joy.

The data of history might help you understand where a person has been, but often hide who they actually are. The Shack and Cross Roads will tell you much more about me than a few facts ever could, but a writer is always more, intentionally illusive behind the curtain of words. For me as a human being, everything is about Jesus and Father and Holy Spirit, about relationships, and to live is to participate in an adventure of faith which can only be experienced inside one day’s worth of grace at a time. Aspirations of success, visions of significance and dreams of grandeur all died a long time ago and I have absolutely no interest in resurrecting them. I have finally figured out that I have nothing to lose by living a life of faith and trust. I know more joy every minute of every day than seems appropriate, but I love the wastefulness of my Papa’s grace and presence.
