We continue our series focused on Ben and Matt’s forthcoming book Having the Mind of Christ: Eight Axioms for Cultivating a Robust Faith. Ben, Matt, Gino, and Christy discuss how they’ve practically worked out the principles and practices in the book in their lives and leadership over the past several years.
Today we talk about Axiom 4: God Meets Us in Our Messy Reality. We talk about how each of us learned to drop our performance mentality with God and consent to receive God’s presence in each moment, as messy as it may be. This is one of the most important paradigm shifts for learning to be a bit more gentle with ourselves (as God is).

Any chance you have transcripts of your podcasts? I listen while driving and there’s so much I want to take notes on but can’t. Thanks for the good work!

Hi Tina, thanks for listening! We’d love to be able to do this, but it isn’t in the scope of our budget/capacity right now!
