Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:12
What does it mean to renew your mind? Is it reading scripture? Is it sharing the gospel? Or maybe it’s something different altogether.
This week we are talking with Todd R. Vick, Author of “The Renewing of Your Mind”. Todd shares about how we can remap our brains to get in sync with God, how traditions and religion have caused us to lose sight of what a relationship with God looks like, and what a renewed mind looks like. Todd also shares about his deconstruction as a pastor and how it birthed the idea for his book.
Now, Todd is on a reconstruction journey. The church might look a bit different but he has a new, fresh perspective on who God is and how to align with Him. Also, Todd shared some extremely interesting stories, one of which deals with racism in a traditional church and how his life was threatened by a church member due to his desire for inclusivity.
This week we talked about:
renewing of the mind
neuroplasticity and how it relates to our faith
The Americanized Church
Evangelism and the truth behind the practice
Inclusivity vs Racism in traditional church
