EPISODE 090: Love: A Journey Away From Absolutes and Expectations: Christian Grindstaff

In this continuation of our conversation with Christian about, Where Love Comes From.  We begin where we left off, and quickly move into our parents, raising kids, and the meat of letting go of absolutes and expectations.

Christian is a natural critical thinker, learner, who candidly and clearly shares his journey of growing to understand love.  Romance, religion, experience, science, and psychology all give us definitions of love, but is there a definition that makes sense for all of us?

Now their calling Millennials all sorts of things. Well, I think it's time to sit down and learn from Millennials. Braden and I talk about religion, politics, education, social change and more.

REJECTED CONTENT: Evangelicalism Vs. Jesus: Kyle Reynolds Interviews Zac Gandara

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at a Christian Outreach Ministry and be a guest on their podcast.  The topic they asked me to address?  Evangelicalism Vs Jesus.  I was nervous, but excited to again be talking with "Christians."  The talk went great, and the interview was really encouraging.  But the podcast never posted, and upon further review of what I shared, the "powers that be" decided it was too controversial to post.

Well, we got a hold of the recording and decided to post it for you to listen too.  Decide for yourself.
