Emergent Nazarenes Backlash

Check out the new Half-Baked Theology podcast episode two. We discuss this YouTube video among other things. I talk with Kyle Stickens and Travis Marshall. Kyle is a recent Organic Church planter, and Travis a pastor of a non-traditional church with a focus on community needs versus congregation needs. We debate the transitional capabilities of the general Church of the Nazarene as well as institutional obstacles to Building for the Kingdom of God. New music is “Closer Than You Think”, a song from a one time project by Switchfoot lead singer Jon Foreman and Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins.
