I struggle with anxiety. It has been something that I’ve struggled with for years, and it is only recently that I have sought professional help to understand the deeper issues behind it. What drove me to seek professional help is that I got to a point of recognizing that I couldn’t process through the anxiety on my own. I needed professional help to get at the root of what was going on. Read More »
Welcome to our first episode on the Parables of Jesus! The Parable of the Wineskin Today we talk about one of the weirder parables, and that is the Parable of the Wineskin found in Luke 5. This parable talks about how if we stick to our rigid theologies and legalistic interpretation of the Bible, then […]
Is the church simply a building that you go to?
Is it just a gathering of believers in one place?
Does going to a coffeeshop or listening to a sermon online count as church?
What is the church? This week on Thursday’s Theology, we discuss what the church is and reveal some things that we think about how the church functions.
Depending on your upbringing, you might have some different ideas of what church is. We’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think the church is. Feel free to use the comment section below to voice your thoughts. We’d love to hear from you.
Take care and have a great week.
Welcome to our 5th episode on prayer!
This week we talk about how theology is like watching a movie. Hearing from different people and their perspectives helps broaden our understanding of theology. There is beauty in the diversity of theological opinions.
Then we dive into how to be angry with God in our prayers. It is not taboo or forbidden, but an expression of our relationship with God. Anger is a natural part of any relationship, including our relationship with God. God desires us to be in full relationship, meaning the entire pantheon of emotion.
**By the way, I misspoke in the video, Habakkuk’s prophecy is right before the Babylonian exile, not the Assyrian.**

Welcome to another episode of Thursday’s Theology!
This week we are going to be talking about a couple of different things. First, we are going to talk about times where politicians, civic leaders, pastors and others use the phrase “our thoughts and prayers are with you.” We’ll be going through how that can sound extremely hollow sometimes and why.
Secondly, we are going to talk about what are called “petitionary prayers” and why they are an important aspect of prayer life.
As always, if you would like to join the conversation, don’t hesitate to ask questions, offer critiques, or seek clarification in the comment section below!
Thanks for joining us and we’ll see you next week!
Welcome to the second official episode of Thursday’s Theology!
The question that is guiding us throughout these first few episodes is;
What is Prayer and why is it important?
Today we’ll be looking at one of the more famous prayers in the Bible. This prayer has come to be known as the “Lord’s Prayer” and it has helped shape a lot of what prayer looks like for the Christian believer.
The Lord’s Prayer gives us a glimpse at what Jesus thinks is important to include in our prayers, so we will dive into what those things are and how to incorporate them into a daily prayer routine.
We encourage discussion in the comments, so feel free to introduce yourselves and input your opinion! Disclaimer, disagreements are okay, but hateful speech will not be tolerated. The point is to start a conversation, not an argument.
