Faith in Practice Week 1

Episode 57 | Faith in Practice | Released January 4, 2021 | Special guest: John Mark Comer

For the first episode of the new year and the start of our Faith in Practice series, Raechel and Amanda talk with pastor, author, and hurry-eliminator John Mark Comer. On the heels of an unexpected 2020, and with the hope of a brand new year ahead, they explore what it really means to live like Jesus. How do we create everyday rhythms that bring fulfillment instead of emptiness and exhaustion? Touching on topics from marathon training and New Years de-resolutions to prayer and peppermint mochas, their conversation keeps coming back to one key question: what would Jesus do if He were me?
